Olsson's goal aim

22 November 2014

Markus Olsson would love to double his goal tally for Rovers when he faces Leeds United later today.

The Swedish defender has only claimed one goal in Rovers colours - a superb strike in the 3-3 draw between the two sides at Elland Road back in September 2012.

But whilst Olsson would be delighted to get on the scoresheet once more in what will be his 50th league start for the club if selected, he is just as satisfied in creating opportunities for others.

"It has been a while so hopefully I'll score a goal at home," said Olsson. "I haven't done that yet, I'm still waiting.

"But I think assists are just as important as the goals. I've already had a couple of them this season, so hopefully I can get more of them and deliver some good crosses for Jordan, Rudy or anyone else in the box.

"To be behind creating a goal is a good feeling as well. When I'm further down the pitch I'm not going to probably get as many chances as the strikers are getting, so I just need to put in a decent cross for the boys in the box.

"But if I get a chance I'm definitely going for it."

Supporters are reminded that tickets for the Roses clash will go off sale at Ewood Park at 12 noon today. Tickets are on sale to home fans with a database history of purchasing match tickets.

Prices are on sale from £21 for Adults, from £13 for Seniors 65 and over, and from just £8 for Under-17s.

The club is anticipating its biggest attendance of the season, swelled by a sizeable visiting support. Therefore, supporters are being advised to arrive early to avoid delays.

Due to the large number of away coaches, this could cause congestion on the approach roads to Ewood Park, especially from the Darwen End, which is likely to impact on users of Car Park B.

Also with roadworks that are part of the Pennine Reach Ewood Gyratory Scheme, car parking options around the stadium are reduced. Matchday parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis from Car Park H and Car Park F priced at £10.
