Team News

  • New signing Michael Kightly could make his debut for Burnley in this Lancashire derby.
  • Ross Wallace is set to miss out again despite his injury not being as bad as first feared.
  • In-form Jordan Rhodes is set to be fit despite picking up a hand injury on international duty for Scotland.
  • Ruben Rochina is set to miss out again with DJ Campbell doubtful for the trip to Turf Moor.

Prediction

  • Burnley have continued their fine form at the start of the Championship season and will be well rested after the international break.
  • Blackburn on the other hand would not have welcomed the two weeks off after finally hitting form with main man Jordan Rhodes notching four goals in his last two games.
  • The Clarets can rival Rhodes' strikepower however with Danny Ings and Sam Vokes currently the hottest partnership in the division.
  • A fiery derby is in order with a few goals, but Burnley have impressed more than Rovers so far this season.
