No easy matches

25 August 2012

Kean tips today's opponents to be in the promotion shake-up.

Steve Kean believes that Leicester City will be one of their rivals for promotion this season.

Both clubs have made some quality signings over the summer and ahead of the clash between the two sides this Saturday afternoon Kean knows that it won't be an easy match against the Foxes.

Rovers have started well with a win and a draw, and although Nigel Pearson's side began with a win over Peterborough United on the opening day, they lost away at Charlton Athletic in midweek.

Nevertheless the Rovers isn't expecting an easy ride.

"I think it will be a real tough test," said the Rovers boss.

"They'll be fancying being there or there abouts with the squad and the wage bill that they have.

"They have a lot of experienced players, they've got a lot of players at this level that can deliver so I think it will be a real tough test.

"We've got to go into the game with confidence, we've taken a very good point away at Ipswich and we've managed to grind out a win against Hull City, so we should be confident going into this game."

Tickets for the Leicester game will be on open sale right up to the 3.00pm kick-off with prices from £19 for Adults, from £12 for Students and Seniors and from £7 for Juniors under 16.
