Chimbonda in line for instant debut

28 August 2009 10:03
Midfielder David Dunn is likely to be on the bench having made a goalscoring comeback from injury in the midweek Carling Cup victory over Gillingham. However, fellow midfielder Steven Reid will not be considered because of a hamstring injury, Brett Emerton has a thigh niggle which rules him out, while former Real Madrid full-back Michel Salgado is not yet match fit after signing as a free agent. Striker Benni McCarthy should be fit after a slight ankle injury but defender Ryan Nelsen (knee) and on-loan striker Franco Di Santo (hamstring) are out. Blackburn (from): Robinson, Jacobsen, Samba, Givet, Chimbonda, Diouf, Andrews, N'Zonzi, Pedersen, Dunn, McCarthy, Roberts, Kalinic, Olsson, Brown, Grella, Hoilett.
