Rovers star set for recall
Gael Givet could make a dramatic return to the Rovers side in place of injured Grant Hanley against Norwich City on Saturday.
Ewood Park boss Steve Kean claims to have patched up his differences with the Frenchman and with Hanley out, could throw him straight back into the team alongside Scott Dann.
Hanley will miss the remainder of the season with an ankle ligament injury.
Top scorer Yakubu has shaken off a knee problem however, while Junior Hoilett is also available after a hamstring niggle.
Bradley Orr (Achilles) played after a pain-killing injection against Swansea and should also be fit but Martin Olsson (groin) is a doubt.
