Blackburn boss Steve Kean has no fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday's visit of the Blues.

Under-fire Kean was boosted by last week's 4-3 Carling Cup win over Newcastle before Rovers were denied victory over Norwich thanks to a stoppage-time penalty.

Kean is unlikely to make many changes but midfielder David Dunn is back in contention after recovering from a calf injury and Junior Hoilett has recovered after suffering a tightening of his hamstring last weekend. Ryan Nelsen (knee), Michel Salgado (hamstring), Scott Dann (calf) and Vince Grella (hip) are still ruled out.

John Terry looks set to return to the Chelsea side for the game.

The Blues and England captain was an unused substitute in Tuesday night's Champions League draw at Genk hours after police launched a formal investigation into allegations he racially abused QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

John Obi Mikel has shaken off a back problem, while Hilario (flu) and the suspended Didier Drogba (arm) will return after the international break.

Blackburn (from): Robinson, Bunn, Lowe, Samba, Givet, Hanley, Olsson, Rochina, Pedersen, Nzonzi, Petrovic, Dunn, Vukcevic, Hoilett, Yakubu, Goodwillie, Formica, Roberts, Slew.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Bosingwa, Ferreira, Ivanovic, Terry, Cole, Luiz, Mikel, Romeu, Ramires, Lampard, Mata, Malouda, Meireles, McEachran, Torres, Kalou, Sturridge, Anelka, Lukaku, Turnbull.
