The match between Football League founder-member County and Rovers, the three-time champions of England, is one of six special anniversary fixtures to celebrate 125 years since the beginning of the world's original league football competition in 1888.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer's first home game after taking permanent charge of the club is against Nottingham Forest on 10 August.

At the end of August, they face Lancashire rivals Bolton at Ewood Park, followed by a trip to another local rival, Burnley, for the East Lancashire derby at the start of September.

October sees them travel to two more Lancashire sides; Wigan and Blackpool.

Rovers are at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Boxing Day and are away at Leeds at the start of 2014.

Blackburn, who finished 17th in the Championship last season, close their campaign with the return fixture against newly-relegated Wigan on 3 May.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

One Point And One Conclusion For United

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
