The season restarts again this weekend, after two weeks off to allow Sven to prepare for World Cup qualifying games. For those who have lost sight of the league programme, Rovers take on Bolton at 4pm Sunday the 10th September at the Reebok Stadium.

At lease the enforced break gave some of our injured players time to recuperate and does give our international players an additional day to recover after jetting around the world to represent their respective countries. Fortunately none of our squad had to suffer the embarrassment of representing England in Belfast.

Reports would suggest that Craig Bellamy will have recovered from injury, in time to be included in the squad for Bolton, however I suspect with our limited squad size, Mark Hughes’s main concern will be that those players on international duty, all return injury free.

Paul Dickov, and Lucas Neill will be available following their suspensions, however Andy Todd starts his three match suspension and wont be available.

It will be interesting to see whether Hughes includes new signings David Bentley and Zurab Khizanishvili in the starting line up, ahead of any of the current squad. Of the two, with Todd's suspension Zurab has the best chance, although Hughes may stick with the tried and tested Mokoena, in order to combat Bolton's high ball game and the aerial threat of Kevin Davies. Who'd have thought that or believed that the former £7 million miss fit at Ewood would have now been classed as a threat; full credit must be given to the lad for turning his career around and to Big Sam for gambling on the player when he was released by Southampton a couple of seasons ago.

Who'd have believed a couple of season's ago that Rovers wouldn't sell out their allocation of tickets for a local derby and tickets would be available on the day at the turnstiles. At £32 a ticket, for a game being televised live at 4pm on a Sunday a large majority of supporters who would have clamoured for tickets, are boycotting the game, choosing to watch the game either at home or in local bars, including Rovers own Blues Bar, that are screening the game.
