Show no fear

21 November 2014

Markus Olsson believes Rovers can take plenty of confidence and belief into Saturday's Roses clash with Leeds United.

Rovers go into the match at Ewood Park in fine form, looking to extend their current unbeaten run to eight matches.

The Swede recognises that it will be tough task against Neil Redfearn's Whites, but at home and playing with confidence, he is hopeful they can claim all three points.

"Every game in this league is not easy," said Olsson. "But we are playing well right now and I think everybody has a lot of confidence.

"We are playing at home, it is the first game coming back after a few days off and we'll go into it 100 per cent.

"It is a big game, they always come with a lot of support, but whilst we should respect them, we should show no fear.

"We'll be going for three points, there'll be a big crowd, it is always nice to play in front of a big crowd, we just have to stay focused."

Rovers are encouraging supporters to get their tickets for Saturday's match against Leeds United in advance as tickets for the Roses clash will go off sale at Ewood Park at 12 noon on the day of the game.

Tickets for the game are currently on sale to home fans with a database history of purchasing match tickets and supporters can pre-book in advance online at or via the call centre on 0871 222 1444 and collect from the Roverstore collection point on the day of the game.

Tickets are also available in store at the Roverstore at Ewood Park and the Oneroverstore on Church Street in Blackburn.

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.
