Blackburn have not lost a league game since Christmas and Everton are in fourth battling for a Champions League spot. This will be a superb battle between two ambitious sides.

Blackburn (from): Friedel, Emerton, Ooijer, Samba, Warnock, Bentley, Pedersen, Dunn, Reid, Derbyshire, Santa Cruz, McCarthy, Roberts, Berner, Khizanishvili, Olsson, Rigters, Treacy, Tugay, Brown.

Everton (from): Howard, Hibbert, Neville, Jagielka, Lescott, Valente, Baines, Arteta, Carsley, Cahill, Osman, Fernandes, Vaughan, Johnson, Anichebe, Van der Meyde, Wessels, Gosling.

Lescott: it's a big game

"It's a massive game for us to consolidate fourth spot.

"Blackburn are pushing for Europe, so it's going to be a big game for us.

"They've been on a good run, picking up some vital results, so it's going to be another tough game up there."

Injuries and Suspensions

Everton will give late fitness tests to Leon Osman (groin injury) and Tim Cahill (hamstring), but Anthony Gardner (leg injury) is definitely out. Ryan Nelsen will definitely miss out.
