Blackburn have landed in India with boss Steve Kean under increasing pressure after owners Venky's promised to take action over his team's poor form this season.

Fans staged demonstrations against Kean and the Indian owners after Saturday's 4-0 defeat by Manchester City left Blackburn 19th in the Barclays Premier League.

The players arrived to a warm welcome, however, on the sub-continent ahead of their exhibition match against local side Pune FC.

Although Venky's claimed Kean was unsackable in January, they will use the club's tour to Pune to assess the problems.
