Blackburn have named a strong squad to take on Accrington in the fundraiser between the two on Tuesday night. Rovers are the latest Premier League side to lend their help to Stanley's campaign to raise £308,000 before October 28. The League Two side face closure if they do not settle their tax bill by then and have embarked on a number of money-spinning events in a bid to raise the cash. The likes of Gael Givet, Benni McCarthy, Morten Gamst-Pedersen, Michael Salgado and Pascal Chimbonda will all turn out at the Crown Ground, a month after Burnley played a similar game against John Coleman's men.
