Bowyer: Keane is ready

7 March 2014

Gary Bowyer has no qualms about handing new signing Michael Keane his debut in the white hot atmosphere of an East Lancashire derby this Sunday.

Rovers secured the services of the highly-rated Manchester United youngster in a loan deal until the end of the season, and could hand the defender his debut at Ewood Park.

"If you look at him and some of the games he's had in his short career, they have been in big games," said the manager.

"He's played in the play-off finals last season, and he played for Manchester United against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Carling Cup.

"So I don't think it will phase him at all, we are looking forward to him playing."

Supporters are reminded that there will be no tickets on sale on the day of the Burnley game.

Rovers fans who have a database history of purchasing tickets have until 4.00pm on Saturday to get them from the Roverstore at Ewood Park, and until 5.30pm from the Oneroverstore in Blackburn town centre.

Adult prices are from £25 for Sunday's 12.30pm kick-off, but supporters can purchase a Burnley and AFC Bournemouth ticket together for just £31 for the two games in the RFS Riverside Stand with our special double deal discount.
