DAVID Dunn and Corry Evans are set to return to the Blackburn Rovers squad for Good Friday's home clash with Yeovil Town.

Dunn missed Saturday's 3-3 draw at Sheffield Wednesday with a calf strain while Evans has sat out the last two matches with a groin injury he sustained in the 2-0 home win over Ipswich Town.

Dickson Etuhu is likely to miss out for the second game running with the hamstring strain he picked up after coming on as an 85th-minute substitute in the 2-0 home victory over QPR.

Ben Marshall is expected to return before the end of the campaign after spending three months on the sidelines with ankle-ligament damage.

But Adam Henley will not play again this season.

Sad to see Frank Kopel has passed away. Always second fiddle to the solid Billy Wilson, and noted for his memorable hair style and name.

AT LAST A PRESS OFFICER
Blackburn Rovers have a new Director of Communications, Press Officer to you and me. The first since the dismissal of Paul Agnew some two years ago.
Alan Myers (pic above) has been in the job since March. Formerly with Everton, Alan says “it is his job to communicate to the fans. Its about engaging with the fans and its about engaging inside the club as well, because communications are both external and internal. My main priority will be to try and get the Rovers fans talking to us and talking to them”.
Asked how aware were he of the events that have gone on at Ewood for the last couple of years, Alan replied” I worked for Sky Sports before I moved to Everton last summer and I did have a quite a close association with the club because I was Sky Sports North West Bureau Chief and Blackburn was one of the clubs I monitored for Sky Sports News. I obviously saw what happened and saw how things changed at Ewood and it was really quite sad to be honest, because I always felt that Blackburn was a proper football club, with great tradition, great history, great fans and great people around the place. And I always loved coming here. My job here is not to look into the past and what went wrong, although it will be disrespectful of me to tell the fans to forget what’s happened, but I believe in looking forward.
This club should not be where it is and I think the will of everyone here – the owners, the manager, the players, the staff and the supporters – is to get this club back into the Premier League”.
Fine sentiments from our new press officer but if he wants to realy know what has gone on since that dark day when Allardyce was sacked on 13-12-2010. Log on to www.regoftherovers.c
o.uk and scroll back the last four years.
Although I know it is not his brief to resurrect the past, apologies are still needed from Mrs Anuradha Desai and her brothers for their mismanagement and ruination of a fine football club.
Questions need answering before we can move forward.
• Why was Allardyce sacked?
• Why were two of the game’s best administrators, John Williams and Tom Finn allowed to go? Was their departure instigated by agent/advisor Jerome Anderson?
• Who appointed the disastrous Steve Kean?
• Why unprecedented protest by fans wanting Kean sacked totally ignored?
• Why are banners and drums still banned from Ewood Park?
• Did Jerome Anderson run Blackburn Rovers and make day to day decisions for over two years as indicated by RT. Hon Jack Straw MP, the club’s Honorary Vice President.
• Why was Kean and Anderson allowed to sign so many below average players on high salaries and long contract’s. Who authorised this?

I could go on and on and I know that my persistence in these matters annoy some people. But history tells us you ignore the past at your peril because if you do, it will all happen again.
Only the owners can explain these issues and some ‘Humble Pie’ from Mrs Anuradha Desai is long overdue.
On a lighter note it would not go a miss if our new Director Communications (Press Officer) could attempt to get the Rovers more coverage in the National Press. Daily Mail in particular.
Good luck in your new job Alan, working for the Venky’s you will need it. Just ask Paul Agnew.
