Sibling rivalry

Markus Olsson can't wait to face brother Martin when Rovers take on Norwich City this evening.

The twins have never faced each other in a competitive fixture but could do so at Ewood Park this Tuesday night.

Younger brother Martin missed the previous match between the two sides back in August due to suspension, whilst Markus was rested at the weekend against Blackpool. But both are expected to be on opposing sides tonight.

"It will be good to see him," Olsson told Rovers Player

"We speak every day and keep in touch always. We don't live so close to each other so we try to speak on the phone. He talks a bit too much sometimes so it would be nice to make him quiet for the day.

"The last time he was suspended but now is the opportunity, it looks like he will be playing, he is looking forward to coming back to Ewood Park after so many years here."

The Rovers full back knows it won't be easy against Norwich, a side who have won their last four league games.

"It is a big game against a good team," added the Swede. "They were struggling a couple of months ago but now they are back on track.

"They are a strong team but they are coming to Ewood Park and we know we are strong at home. I know it won't be an easy game for them and I think they know it as well."

Tickets for this evening's match against Norwich City will be on open sale up until the 7.45pm kick-off. Tickets are priced from £12 Adults, from £9 Seniors/Students and from £5 for Juniors aged 16 and under.
