Blackburn Rovers skipper Christopher Samba has not been able to contain his delight at having Rovers youngster Phil Jones back from injury and ready to take his place in the back line. The 19-year-old has just come back from Knee surgery and made his comeback during the 2-2 draw with Blackpool last weekend. Samba makes no secret of the fact that he likes the way the England under 21 star plays and enjoys playing alongside him in the Rovers’ team. He also believes that Jones coming back can only help in their fight to stay in the Premier league. He said: "We're going to need his enthusiasm and character. He's a player who has that fire and will never give up. "He's a young player but he's important for us because he shows the other young players that now it's about who wants to stay in this league the most. "He's somebody who works and never stops. He'll run and run again. "I think if he goes and makes a tackle other players will follow his example, so it's great to have Jonesy back."
