BLACKBURN Rovers are weighing up going back in for Manchester United starlet Michael Keane in a bid to solve their defensive crisis before the East Lancashire derby with Burnley.

With captain Grant Hanley still to return to full training and the extent of Matt Kilgallon’s injury yet to be determined, Rovers boss Gary Bowyer is working to bring a defender in on loan in time for Sunday’s big Ewood Park clash.

But Keane, who was close to joining Rovers last week, is not the only centre-back Bowyer has enquired about.

After calling his squad in for training on their day off yesterday – a consequence of the performance they produced in Saturday’s 4-0 loss at Bolton Wanderers – Bowyer and managing director Derek Shaw spent yesterday afternoon locked in talks with several clubs and agents.

MORE TOP STORIES:

Some players are proving out of Rovers’ price range while others will only come if they are guaranteed games.

It is believed that proved to be the sticking point with Keane last week.

The 21-year-old, who is in the England U21 squad for their encounter with Wales U21 at the iPro Stadium tomorrow, called time on a loan spell at Derby County earlier this season as he was not playing enough.

It is understood the uncertainty over whether he would start most weeks for Rovers was the reason why the deal broke down.

But it is a deal Bowyer and Shaw – who worked with United manager David Moyes when he was chairman of Preston North End – could resurrect now there is a question mark over the fitness of both of Rovers’ senior central defenders.

Bowyer has been scouring the market for defensive cover ever since skipper Scott Dann was sold to Crystal Palace on transfer deadline day.

But the groin injury sustained by Kilgallon against Bolton has added urgency to the search.

Kilgallon, having been unable to train yesterday, will be assessed today.

It is hoped the problem is not serious.

Hanley, who has a calf strain, did do a light session yesterday, however, away from the main group.

The Rovers skipper has pulled out of the Scotland squad for tomorrow night’s friendly with Poland.

Midfielder Tom Cairney, who missed out on Saturday with an ankle injury, is expected to take part in a light session today.

The Rovers squad were supposed to have a day off yesterday but Bowyer hauled them in to go over the defeat to Bolton.

Bowyer said: “We have to look at the good points but more importantly the bad points because there were more bad points than good.

“We were missing key players – it’s as simple as that. But what do you do? Not turn up and play the game because you are missing key players?

“It’s part of football and we won’t be using that as an excuse.”

Meanwhile young Rovers striker Dean Rittenberg was in action for England U18s yesterday.

The 17-year-old, who was an unused substitute at Bolton, came off the bench as England lost 2-1 to Croatia.

The defensive cover for Rovers should have been carried out on an urgent basis as soon as Dann left or even when there were already signs that Dann was leaving and NOT wait until a few players are injured like what it currently stands.

I HATE to say it but the Dingles are on an extremely good run at the moment and it is very likely they will beat us on Sunday. It also looks like they will definitely make it to the Premier League next season.

Unless a miracle happens for Rovers?! Rovers have blown our chances of fighting for the sixth position on Saturday!

An absolute disgrace. The club have know for weeks that they were going to lose Dann- long before he actually left. How on earth they thought they could get through the remainder of the season with just 2 recognised centre halves is beyond belief. Frankly Bowyer's comments that Lowe and Spurr can slot in are frightening- we saw that on Saturday when we were all over the place at the back. If cash is an issue (which in itself is a concern bearing in mind this is only a short term loan) then here is a radical thought stop buying and loaning players who are nowhere near enough to get in the first team. How many players have we loaned out this season? Focus on a smaller number of players who are capable of playing at this level). Didn't Bowyer sign a centre half in the summer just to then loan him out in Scotland.

Agree, if Kilgallon has a groin injury, which is being muted, then with seven games this month and in April as well he is going to get quite a few games.

Glancing through the LT this morning before I came on here I get the distinct impression that being guaranteed a place has been a stumbling block not just with Keane but with several others as well.

Surely that's not right, no player should be allowed to dictate to a manager who plays or not?

I know we are desperate for cover but surely this isn't a player we should be looking at.

Totally agree Matt, Lowe should be at RB, he's played there in the PL against much better players that he's going to come up against in this league and didn't let us down.

I am not going to say anything else against Williamson, my views are well documented.

Hopefully we will have Evans and Cairney back.

That's football I am afraid, managers are brilliant when their sides are winning but dare to lose a match or two, well, they haven't a bloody clue have they?

It's an emotional reaction, remember the carnage of last season?

It's like groundhog day for some of these supposed fans, they are so fixated on the recent past they don't understand that there are two teams in every game and only four possible outcomes. (win, draw, lose, abandon).

Very few can take a step back and look at the longer term, it's instant results or else.

You lot are pathetic, you scab a few wins and you are 'meeting us in the play-off finals' and 'Bowyer's done a brilliant job in reducing the squad size and buying young and quality players' etc etc ad infinitum.

ONE defeat (Albeit a convincing mauling at a very poor Bolton side) and you can see quotes like 'Bowyer is out of his depth' 'Signing useless players' 'Bowyer's comments are frightening' etc etc.

Support your team, support your manager and you may just see some results - turning on your players and boss after ONE DEFEAT the week after arguably your best away performance of the season is shocking.

hate to say it to a claret but I totally agree with your comments, however this is our site and our business so pls keep your gloating to your own pages...

This game is all about opinions and everyone is entitled to theirs, but yes some Rovers fans have been calling for GB to be sacked ever since the start of the season. Who they think would replace him I dont know. Not many reputable and experienced managers would take this job on at the salary GB is on, even though the club is better run now than last season....plus agaiinst most barometers GB is doing a very good job working within a very tight budget and clearing-up the mess from two years/seasons of absolute carnage at our club.

Promotion has never been a realistic objective this season for our club, and certainly not something that was ever planned for - even being on the margins of the play-offs is a small miracle considering where the club was less than 12 months ago.

If everyone pulls together, players and fans alike, then we can easily finish top half of the table this season, and then build further for a properly funded push for a play-off place or even promotion next season.

Despite the lack of form and injuries and the top class form of this weekends opponents, I can sense a what would be a `shock` win for the Rovers.

I think the problem in your article, balanced though it is French Rover, is the use of the words 'properly funded'. The FFP rules are going to hit Blackburn hard, and I would imagine that this summer will be a case of getting rid of the high earners still left at the club, and unfortunately for you this includes Jordan Rhodes.

You need a complete rebuild around players like Cairney imo, on a sustainable Championship budget, but who knows if this is possible or even if Bowyer is the man for such a big task.

Support your team, support your manager and you may just see some results - turning on your players and boss after ONE DEFEAT the week after arguably your best away performance of the season is shocking.
hate to say it to a claret but I totally agree with your comments, however this is our site and our business so pls keep your gloating to your own pages...

This game is all about opinions and everyone is entitled to theirs, but yes some Rovers fans have been calling for GB to be sacked ever since the start of the season. Who they think would replace him I dont know. Not many reputable and experienced managers would take this job on at the salary GB is on, even though the club is better run now than last season....plus agaiinst most barometers GB is doing a very good job working within a very tight budget and clearing-up the mess from two years/seasons of absolute carnage at our club.

Promotion has never been a realistic objective this season for our club, and certainly not something that was ever planned for - even being on the margins of the play-offs is a small miracle considering where the club was less than 12 months ago.

If everyone pulls together, players and fans alike, then we can easily finish top half of the table this season, and then build further for a properly funded push for a play-off place or even promotion next season.

Despite the lack of form and injuries and the top class form of this weekends opponents, I can sense a what would be a `shock` win for the Rovers.
I agree too - completely fickle, Bowyer has to be given time and patience. However, it's interesting that a Burnley fan would highlight this given that they wanted Dyche out last season - so it's a good job the board stuck with Dyche and likewise lets hope the same is true for Bowyer.

I fully expect Burnley to win on Sunday - Dyche said as much after the last game. They're in form, have a good team and it's clicking for them. So anything other than a defeat for us is a bonus at this stage.

On a tangent.....I think it's interesting to see that Dave Jones is in another promotion chasing championship side - I think as well as the strikers hitting form for them (one of whom signed by Howe) that he's probably been their best and most consistent signing this season. Despite his limitations it's a shame we didn't sign him/keep him!

`Four points off the play offs with a game in hand. Dare to dream or wait for the inevitable collapse `

Still dare to dream Wild rover ? or is Sunday part 2 of the inevitable collapse ?

Whether we win lose or draw on Sunday we will still be in a great position for AUTOMATIC promotion. Yet you can only dare to dream of the play offs.

Premature celebration ? 66 points from 33 games is just cause for celebration. We know we are a small town club with no benefactor. That only makes this season even more remarkable. You however are in the process of wasting benefactor 2`s money. Your debts are are more than the entire cost of our squad. And yet here we are just 13 games aware from the Premier League, whereas you are 13 games aware from FFP sanctions and financial meltdown. Premature celebration ? There is nothing premature about it. Walkers purchase of the PL is long gone and the Venkys fortune is dwindling fast.. And yet you think you are a great and powerful club. Just man up Rover and accept that you are very much second best to the Mighty Clarets and probably soon to be second best to the mighty Preston North End.

Calm down WKD. I meant the first post at the top of the page, not yours. The one from .Lancs _ Pensioner. For the record there are only a small number of contributers who are not supporting GB but some fans are raising genuine cases for concern. For the record, I repeat what I have said before. GB is the best manager we have had for a long time. He has worked wonders at the club in a very short period of time. He is turning the club around. He and we know ther is still a long way to go. Last wek was a big disappointment anf highlighted defficiencies. Next week we will beat the dingles and then look forward to the next match.
Just to point out to you all the totally absurd comment at the top of the page was from the fake LP not me the Real one.

Well if we are such, where does that leave BFC, a club that has won nowt since 1960 and plays in a stadium circa. 1970

Still dare to dream Wild rover ? or is Sunday part 2 of the inevitable collapse ?

Whether we win lose or draw on Sunday we will still be in a great position for AUTOMATIC promotion. Yet you can only dare to dream of the play offs.

Premature celebration ? 66 points from 33 games is just cause for celebration. We know we are a small town club with no benefactor. That only makes this season even more remarkable. You however are in the process of wasting benefactor 2`s money. Your debts are are more than the entire cost of our squad. And yet here we are just 13 games aware from the Premier League, whereas you are 13 games aware from FFP sanctions and financial meltdown. Premature celebration ? There is nothing premature about it. Walkers purchase of the PL is long gone and the Venkys fortune is dwindling fast.. And yet you think you are a great and powerful club. Just man up Rover and accept that you are very much second best to the Mighty Clarets and probably soon to be second best to the mighty Preston North End.
Classic dingle poison FCBurnley.

''We know we are a small town club with no benefactor. That only makes this season even more remarkable''

And yet all we hear about is this massive support and tradition you have. Oh and your 2nd in the Championship. What Blackburn Rovers achieved was truly remarkable, money or no money, for a small town club to break the monopoly of the giants of English football the way we did was and always will be astonishing - and that's what sticks in your throats.

''You however are in the process of wasting benefactor 2`s money''

Are you seriously comparing Venkys to Jack Walker? It's like comparing Jedward with The Rolling Stones. Jack Walker got King Kennys services, Venkys got Steve Kean - catch my drift?

''Walkers purchase of the PL is long gone''

Yeah we know, it happened nearly 15 years ago and yet you still go on about it like it was last week - the bitterness, jealousy & plain ignorance is still as intense as ever - and since Jack Walkers day we've won a League Cup and spent another decade in the top flight, producing home grown talent like Duff, Dunn & Jones who were sold in multi-million pound deals to some of Europes biggest clubs.

''And yet you think you are a great and powerful club. Just man up Rover and accept that you are very much second best to the Mighty Clarets and probably soon to be second best to the mighty Preston North End''

No, we don't think we're a great & powerful club and never have but given your life dominating addiction of just managing to register a victory over us you'd think we were great & powerful - shows you for what you really are.

We've been 2nd best to you for a few months. You've been 2nd best to us for nearly 4 decades. What part of that doesn't register with you lot?
A little purple patch because you have a good manager and 3 decent players (none of which will be there long - remember Coyle) who have stayed virtually injury/suspension free and you'd think you'd won the Champions League.

I've said it a thousand times, the mentality and monumental over reaction by every single one of you says everything there is to know about a dingle.

Easily impressed, Rovers obsessed, short term selective memory specialists who are the result of decades of pain and misery - and your assumption of victory on Sunday is both dangerous and naive.

Just shows how thick some Burnley fans are with their constant references to a cup final.

It's impossible to have a cup final in a league structure because until the final game of the season is played there is always another game.

For the ill informed knobhead troll; a cup final comes at the end of a knock out competition, you start with, say 128 teams, get drawn against one of them, play a game and if you win you play the next game against one of the remaining 63 teams in the competition, and so on until if you are lucky you reach the final 2.

That is a cup final, one of the two participants walks away with a trophy usually in the shape of a cup.

I explained that to my daughter when she was 5, she understood it.

Hope that helps.

Lets me clarify the meaning when put into the above context.

A cup final is the show-piece game in a clubs season, the game that matters the most, the final game of any importance if you will.

After the derby game on Sunday Blackburn Rovers might as well pack up and head for the sunshine because you have NOTHING else left to play for this season. Hence "cup final".

Burnley however have the LEAGUE TITLE to play for, we have automatic promotion to play for, and at the very worst we have a place in the play-off's to look forward to, and you know how we perform in play-off's I'm sure.

Taking the p!ss out of you morons tends to lose its appeal when we have to spell everything out to you. Do try to keep up.

An interesting and typically manipulated piece of trash but to be expected from an over excited tobacco chewin' redneck with a crazed addiction for Rovers.

A cup final could also be described as club who's supporters can only dream of victory against it's nearest and quite obviously more successful neighbours, a category into which Burnley football club fall into perfectly, mainly due to the fact it's been 35 years of down right unadulterated domination despite your woeful attempts at denying the truth.

Taking the p*ss out of you lot has been and always will be easy and to be honest it doesn't lose it's appeal to me. I enjoy it. I see it as a form of light entertainment. To be fair I admire you in a sense for desperately trying to convince yourself Burnley are about to dominate Rovers as we have Burnley - certainly in your lifetime, when quite clearly you're not and never will. You won't get within a million miles of handing out the mental torture we've handed to you lot and that my son is a fact. You know it and I know it.

Make the most of your good little run (you clearly already are) and if you get the win you crave on Sunday then so be it. We'll take it on the chin and certainly won't resort to town centre smashing, toilet wrecking, bus window smashing or general cave man activities which are born out of anger and envy.

The next time we meet you'll be Dychless, Ingless and Trippierless, which means this is your big chance - This is your Cup Final.

P.S Play-offs? Another been there, seen it, done it, got the T-shirt moment, long long before you hill pigs.

"35 years of down right unadulterated domination"

I think we can safely say that comment is a tad far fetched and borne out of the anger and frustration you feel ahead of your Sunday de-panting.

Let's keep this simple shall we, god knows you morons struggle with the basics.

It's actually 34 years since Burnley won a do.

But even you know that we didn't play you for 29 of those years, as we have discussed on many, many occasions, due to your massive and unfair financial advantage over us. We were little old Burnley struggling in the lower leagues while moneybags Blackburn Rovers were buying their way into the big league.

So, 34 years minus 29 years, well that leaves us with just 5 years.

And interestingly you haven't beaten us in 4 years, so I guess that leaves.......

1 year.

That's right, your "domination" of us extends to an incredible ONE YEAR! And all that with a £100million+ financial advantage! And where are you now exactly?

Looking down on little old Burnley?
Level with us?
A point or two behind us?
5 points behind us?
10 points behind us?
Surely no more than 15 points behind us?

TWENTY POINTS!!!???

Must try harder Mungo. This really is YOUR CUP FINAL!

Well at least you know who I was referring to with the phrase "knobhead troll".

It's good that in your mind that you have already won the game on Sunday, I hope your players think the same and I certainly don't know why 20 odd thousand fans will bother turning up, might as well give you the points and not bother.

Football isn't like that though is it?

Totally agree with you, Burnley are a better team than Rovers, the league table never lies.
Burnley are a better run club than Rovers, no argument there either.

But fate is a fickle mistress, imagine how you are going to feel if she points her finger at your opponents for the first time this season on Sunday?

Or do you seriously think that Rovers are simply going to roll over for you? If you do you are even more stupid than we think you are.

It's good that in your mind that you have already won the game on Sunday, I hope your players think the same and I certainly don't know why 20 odd thousand fans will bother turning up, might as well give you the points and not bother. Football isn't like that though is it? Totally agree with you, Burnley are a better team than Rovers, the league table never lies. Burnley are a better run club than Rovers, no argument there either. But fate is a fickle mistress, imagine how you are going to feel if she points her finger at your opponents for the first time this season on Sunday? Or do you seriously think that Rovers are simply going to roll over for you? If you do you are even more stupid than we think you are. owd nick

It is quite obvious that the nodads followers are mellowing and ready to accept the inevitable on Sunday.Burnley are here to stay , Nodads haven't a clue what the future may bring for them . A new 5year contract for the choirboy to remain in the lower divisions what a yoke..
Heres a clue whats coming for the Poultry farmers....Easter ,Chickens, Chucky eggs for the only cup you need ....an egg cup ...
ONCE A CLARET ALWAYS A CLARET

Ref Jim 12.
Typical response from a genuine nodad numpty , the only thing I know is that the Clarets will finish above Venkies Chicken droppings,and that we have bigger seeds to sow for the rest of the season.Time to take your hands out of the front of your trousers before you blow your small piece of great matter apart...What a tosser.!!
