Blackburn v Liverpool FC team news

Updated: April 10, 2012

Blackburn will be missing the suspended Anthony Modeste for Tuesday night’s clash with Liverpool at Ewood Park (kick-off 8pm).

Modeste will serve a three match ban following his red card for violent conduct during Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to West Brom.  That was Rover’s third defeat in a row and leaves the Lancashire outfit sitting in the relegation zone.

Martin Olsson faces a late fitness test ahead of kick-off having sustained a shoulder injury at the Hawthorns, though he did complete the 90 minutes on Saturday.

Liverpool centre-half Daniel Agger looks set to return to the Liverpool following a six week lay-off with a cracked rib and will be hoping to return to the Liverpool line-up for the FA Cup semi-final against Everton which has now become the Anfield club’s most important game of the season.

Andy Carroll will be looking to return to the starting line-up following three substitute appearances from Liverpool’s last four outings.

Blackburn Rovers squad: Robinson, Orr, Dann, Hanley, Martin Olsson, Lowe, Nzonzi, Pedersen, Hoilett, Dunn, Yakubu, Kean, Bunn, Givet, Formica, Petrovic, Rochina, Marcus Olsson, Goodwillie, Vukcevic, Henley.

Liverpool squad: Doni, Flanagan, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Gerrard, Spearing, Downing, Bellamy, Carroll, Suarez, Jones, Coates, Aurelio, Shelvey, Rodriguez, Henderson, Kuyt.
