BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer insists Rudy Gestede will be fit and firing for the opening game of the campaign against his former club Cardiff City – despite the fact the striker is set to miss another week of pre-season.

Gestede did not travel with the Rovers squad for their warm-weather training camp in Portugal after playing a starring role for Benin in their Africa Cup of Nations second-round first-leg qualifying 1-0 win over Malawi.

The 25-year-old, who finished last season in blistering form, returns to Brockhall today and is expected to feature in Saturday’s friendly at Bradford City.

But straight after the trip to Valley Parade Gestede will fly back out of Britain to meet up with his Benin international team-mates ahead of the second leg in Malawi on August 2.

That comes just six days before Cardiff arrive at Ewood Park to kick off the new Championship campaign.

But Bowyer is confident Gestede will come back ‘flying’.

“In an ideal world we would love to have Rudy with us but his country calls,” said Bowyer.

“The good thing is he will be playing competitive games and doing training over there.

“We are not worried about him missing out on anything and we will also send him away with a programme.

“But don’t get me wrong, the sooner he gets back the better.

“He started pre-season with us, which was important for him because they were the early stages, and I’m sure he’ll come back flying.”

Gestede, a £300,000 arrival from Cardiff in January, will play no part in tonight’s friendly away to Accrington Stanley.

Fellow frontman Chris Brown is also expected to sit out the Store First Stadium encounter despite returning to full training after a knock.

That means there is a chance that transfer-listed forward Leon Best could be included in Bowyer’s squad.

Best did not travel to Portugal last week in case he was subject to a bid from one of the clubs who have shown interest in signing him.

There was fresh speculation yesterday that Sheffield Wednesday were close to an agreement with Rovers over the 27-year-old.

But Bowyer denied that Best, who finished last season on loan at Hillsborough, is on the verge of returning to the Owls.

He said: “I’ve not heard of any contact from Sheffield Wednesday.

“We’ve had one or two enquiries but nothing has actually been backed up.

“He’s still contracted to Blackburn Rovers, he’s trained with the group this morning and he is available for selection.”

Rovers, meanwhile, have no interest in signing Dundee United winger Gary Mackay-Steven.

Before we get flooded with dingles I'd like to ask them a simple question about their team, nothing to do with Rovers or Venkys as their pages are so barren as they are all on here! My question is are Burnley fans happy or disappointed with the strengthening of their squad over the summer?

Personally I am happy thus far.

Our main disadvantage last season was the size of our squad and the lack of decent backup should any of our first team players suffer an injury. Signing like Sordell (Who I think could be an absolute bargain), Gilkes and Steven Reid are all good bench cover for Ings, Heaton and Trippier. I also think that Matt Taylor is a shrewd acquisition for the first team and also that The Juke will play alongside Ings until such time as Vokes is available again.

I would like us to sign a centre half with pace to replace Duff, a winger (Callum Macmanaman perhaps?), and another quality central midfielder and I think we are good to go.

It's going to be tough, no doubt, but I think just like last season a lot of sides will underestimate us and hopefully we will have enough about us to stay up.

Seeing as we are having a decent debate, I know you guys were in good form towards the end of the season, do you think that you could mount a charge this year? Personally I think you need to improve you defence and midfield as well as get rid of Fat Robbo to have a chance of the top six.

I just think that you haven't much in the way of tacklers in your midfield, to protect your defence, Cairney, Marshall and Conway are all comfortable on the ball but don't offer much protection. I think you need an enforcer, with a good engine that can help out - a Dean Marney if you like.

I appreciate I haven't seen as much of them play as a unit as you have, but that's my opinion from the outside looking in.

I think you are echoing what the majority of us thought about the squad. We did desperately need to strengthen the defence and personally I would like to see an experienced centre half to mentor Hanley and a right back. As for Robbo he really was chalk and cheese last season but if he can manage his weight and keep fit he will be good for the job. A centre midfield of Cairney and Evans will serve us well, especially with the wealth of wide talent we have. So, yes I think we can carry on from the end of last season and be serious contenders for promotion.

I agree, most of the players who hovered in and out of the midfield for the first two thirds of the season probably won't get a sniff if both Cairney and Evans stay fit.

Our main problem started when Marshall was injured, suddenly the weakness down the right hand side was highlighted and quite a few clubs, Burnley at Ewood included targeted that weakness.

(Vokes) targeted Henley and isolated him several times during the game). In Henley's defence he wasn't fit for most of the season and should have been given time out to recover, but GB was stuck.

We need a fit Robbo to marshal the defence, we won't have any problems going forward but the "You score 3 and we will score 4" attitude of the last quarter is great to watch but not good for the blood pressure.

Still, looking forward to what should be a great season.

And I really, really like my new shirt! lol.

This is amazing!!! Like football at Christmas in the trenches ;) how refreshing lol.... Think Burnley will be under estimated tis season, but whether you guys can do enough, to edge out of the bottom three come the end of this season is a tough one to call, I think going on a roll works both ways, last season, you guys bagged result after result and the feel good factor of the squad definitely added to the points total, I worry that when you are on a run of bad results the same can apply, and the "ah this is a bit sh1t" can seep in the team and count for loosing points too (seen it happen at t'rovers unfortunately)... am looking forward to finding out.. hopefully we will both be in the PL next season and we can let the el Lanclasico continue, pay back and all that ;) ... I really don't think we are missing much in regards to rovers squad, hanley and kilgallon have only played together for the best part of 3/4 of a season so I can see that partnership improving, think spurr has been ace and it looks like baptise will be starting a RB, if keane comes back for another loan stint, got CB and RB cover there along with Lowe Henley etc think we are looking good... Attack is rather exciting especially the pairing of Rhodes and Rudy, think we have got good cover in luke and chris, then rochina and dunn can drop in the 10 spot with added flair when needed... Midfield is shaping nicely to, Cairney is EPIC especially along side Evans, Lowe is the ideal back up to Evans, I know he gets some stick but as a DCM think he does a Robbie savage type job for us.... but Evans has got to be ahead of him terms of Selection. Then the wide boys Marshall, Conway, putting deliveries in which I don't think we've seen since Pedersen lost his way... and Josh King will be pushing those chaps hard, his pace is scary... Just need him to make the right choices come his final ball... So all in all think its time to be optimistic!!!!

I really don't think we are missing much in regards to rovers squad, hanley and kilgallon have only played together for the best part of 3/4 of a season so I can see that partnership improving, think spurr has been ace and it looks like baptise will be starting a RB, if keane comes back for another loan stint, got CB and RB cover there along with Lowe Henley etc think we are looking good... Attack is rather exciting especially the pairing of Rhodes and Rudy, think we have got good cover in luke and chris, then rochina and dunn can drop in the 10 spot with added flair when needed... Midfield is shaping nicely to, Cairney is EPIC especially along side Evans, Lowe is the ideal back up to Evans, I know he gets some stick but as a DCM think he does a Robbie savage type job for us.... but Evans has got to be ahead of him terms of Selection. Then the wide boys Marshall, Conway, putting deliveries in which I don't think we've seen since Pedersen lost his way... and Josh King will be pushing those chaps hard, his pace is scary... Just need him to make the right choices come his final ball... So all in all think its time to be optimistic!!!! Adski1981

With Rudy and Brown out might be a good opportunity to play Dean Rittenburg, hes been doing well for U21's and playing international games would be good to see how he does with the first team. No point wasting a team place on Best.

Come on, we nearly had a decent discussion going on between fans here, everybody ignoring the second comment in the list too... Would be nice not to carry this rubbish on while we are having a decent football chat...

Back to the conversation... I think we have a great side for automatic promotion this season, as good or better than most sides in the championship will be and a settled squad at that who are all getting on! I've been saying it the last few months, we have the type of settled squad Burnley had last season, which ended up being massively beneficial to them last season.

To be fair, in terms of how I think Burnley will do this season, I think they will do well! I think a problem that a lot of teams make when they get to the PL, is that they nearly buy a new squad, basically putting them in a position where nobody really knows each other that well, leading to the team playing badly... Burnley have not really replaced their promotion winning side, but merely bought replacements in case of injuries... This leaves them with a team of players who we know can play well together and know each other well. Good luck to em... No sour grapes here!

Just hope next season we can bring back the Lancashire derby!!

Personally I am happy thus far.

Our main disadvantage last season was the size of our squad and the lack of decent backup should any of our first team players suffer an injury. Signing like Sordell (Who I think could be an absolute bargain), Gilkes and Steven Reid are all good bench cover for Ings, Heaton and Trippier. I also think that Matt Taylor is a shrewd acquisition for the first team and also that The Juke will play alongside Ings until such time as Vokes is available again.

I would like us to sign a centre half with pace to replace Duff, a winger (Callum Macmanaman perhaps?), and another quality central midfielder and I think we are good to go.

It's going to be tough, no doubt, but I think just like last season a lot of sides will underestimate us and hopefully we will have enough about us to stay up.

Seeing as we are having a decent debate, I know you guys were in good form towards the end of the season, do you think that you could mount a charge this year? Personally I think you need to improve you defence and midfield as well as get rid of Fat Robbo to have a chance of the top six.
Attack and midfield are fine hopefully Kean back from Utd and we are set for an assault on it. Looking at our midfield and attack, we have one of, if not, the best midfield in the league
I just think that you haven't much in the way of tacklers in your midfield, to protect your defence, Cairney, Marshall and Conway are all comfortable on the ball but don't offer much protection. I think you need an enforcer, with a good engine that can help out - a Dean Marney if you like.

I appreciate I haven't seen as much of them play as a unit as you have, but that's my opinion from the outside looking in.
We have Evans to do that for us. Lets just hope he can stay fit and we have a consistent starting 11 pretty much like your lot did virtually all season last season. That'll be key to our success but we do have cover who can also do the job
I agree, most of the players who hovered in and out of the midfield for the first two thirds of the season probably won't get a sniff if both Cairney and Evans stay fit.

Our main problem started when Marshall was injured, suddenly the weakness down the right hand side was highlighted and quite a few clubs, Burnley at Ewood included targeted that weakness.

(Vokes) targeted Henley and isolated him several times during the game). In Henley's defence he wasn't fit for most of the season and should have been given time out to recover, but GB was stuck.

We need a fit Robbo to marshal the defence, we won't have any problems going forward but the "You score 3 and we will score 4" attitude of the last quarter is great to watch but not good for the blood pressure.

Still, looking forward to what should be a great season.

And I really, really like my new shirt! lol.

tend to agree that a general sensible debate is occurring on here for the first time in ages. with a bit of luck your idiots that infect here will slowly disappear - the unfortunate thing is that these nut-jobs have created their own monsters on your pages. newton's third law (isaac, not keith).

one of my best pals is a dingle and we have a bet that we go up and you go down - any other outcome and bets are off - if it comes off my pal chris hillbilly has to have a drink in a rovers pub for the afternoon with a rovers shirt on, if you stay up and we dont go up i am in the bridge beir house with a dingle shirt on. now that is some forfeit

Maybe you prefer every other sentence to mention incest or horse-fondling depending on which side of the fence you are on?

Grow a pair and have a debate if you want, or if you prefer an insult-fest then bully for you, knock yourself out (literally), it it really is that simple.
tend to agree that a general sensible debate is occurring on here for the first time in ages. with a bit of luck your idiots that infect here will slowly disappear - the unfortunate thing is that these nut-jobs have created their own monsters on your pages. newton's third law (isaac, not keith).

one of my best pals is a dingle and we have a bet that we go up and you go down - any other outcome and bets are off - if it comes off my pal chris hillbilly has to have a drink in a rovers pub for the afternoon with a rovers shirt on, if you stay up and we dont go up i am in the bridge beir house with a dingle shirt on. now that is some forfeit
Did a similar thing when I was at school, one of my mates was a Rovers fan and we bet each other that we would go to each other's ground and watch a home game.

I distinctly remember Burnley LOST at home 3-0 to Colchester in the old Fourth Division and Blackburn beat Barnsley 5-0 at Ewood in the old Second Division - I think Scott Sellars got a hat trick, and I was stood in the Blackburn end fake-cheering every goal but dying and cursing inside :-(

I think it was pretty indicative of the differing fortunes of the two clubs at the time.

And this coming from a sad loser who has set up yet another username that is impersonating a Burnley fan in order to post this rubbish?

Scamp Kingsley is a Claret, so why have you hijacked his username? Why have you set up loads of superclarets usernames? Why did you try and set up a username that matched mine? Have you got a username for every one of your different personalities?

Why on earth would you bother? You have evidently got so many different email addresses and passwords etc that you have forgotten who you actually are (George Oghani's Ironing Board).

I think your posts on here are actually a cry for help.

Before we get flooded with dingles I'd like to ask them a simple question about their team, nothing to do with Rovers or Venkys as their pages are so barren as they are all on here! My question is are Burnley fans happy or disappointed with the strengthening of their squad over the summer?
Personally I am happy thus far.

Our main disadvantage last season was the size of our squad and the lack of decent backup should any of our first team players suffer an injury. Signing like Sordell (Who I think could be an absolute bargain), Gilkes and Steven Reid are all good bench cover for Ings, Heaton and Trippier. I also think that Matt Taylor is a shrewd acquisition for the first team and also that The Juke will play alongside Ings until such time as Vokes is available again.

I would like us to sign a centre half with pace to replace Duff, a winger (Callum Macmanaman perhaps?), and another quality central midfielder and I think we are good to go.

It's going to be tough, no doubt, but I think just like last season a lot of sides will underestimate us and hopefully we will have enough about us to stay up.

Seeing as we are having a decent debate, I know you guys were in good form towards the end of the season, do you think that you could mount a charge this year? Personally I think you need to improve you defence and midfield as well as get rid of Fat Robbo to have a chance of the top six.
Attack and midfield are fine hopefully Kean back from Utd and we are set for an assault on it. Looking at our midfield and attack, we have one of, if not, the best midfield in the league
I just think that you haven't much in the way of tacklers in your midfield, to protect your defence, Cairney, Marshall and Conway are all comfortable on the ball but don't offer much protection. I think you need an enforcer, with a good engine that can help out - a Dean Marney if you like.

I appreciate I haven't seen as much of them play as a unit as you have, but that's my opinion from the outside looking in.
We have Evans to do that for us. Lets just hope he can stay fit and we have a consistent starting 11 pretty much like your lot did virtually all season last season. That'll be key to our success but we do have cover who can also do the job
I agree, most of the players who hovered in and out of the midfield for the first two thirds of the season probably won't get a sniff if both Cairney and Evans stay fit.

Our main problem started when Marshall was injured, suddenly the weakness down the right hand side was highlighted and quite a few clubs, Burnley at Ewood included targeted that weakness.

(Vokes) targeted Henley and isolated him several times during the game). In Henley's defence he wasn't fit for most of the season and should have been given time out to recover, but GB was stuck.

We need a fit Robbo to marshal the defence, we won't have any problems going forward but the "You score 3 and we will score 4" attitude of the last quarter is great to watch but not good for the blood pressure.

Still, looking forward to what should be a great season.

And I really, really like my new shirt! lol.
Couldn't resist poking Rovers fans with that sh!tty stick with your last barbed remark, could you?
Barbed comment? Jesus wept, you really are paranoid aren't you? Do you check for reds (or clarets perhaps) under the bed every night, wear a tinfoil hat so no-one can read your mind while you sleep, have someone taste your food for you?

You commented earlier about being banned several times, with an aggressive, negative attitude even to your own fans are you really surprised?

Sadly for you I and many, many others really do like the new shirt and as it's still a free country for now and I am actually allowed an opinion of my own I am going to voice it whether you like it or not.

LOL

In the 70's and early 80's I had two mates who were both clarets fans, one workmate on socially, one of my forfeits was I had to go in the Darwen End with one of them one game when we played Burnley at Ewood, one of the worst days of my life as Andy Lochhead scored one, possibly two goals.

I didn't cheer any goals though, no way I would do that fake or otherwise.

with you 100%

Trolling is an addiction and its no fan of either team. just a copy paste exercise to get a wind up.

I think we can all agree we will be watching both teams performance with interest. Personally I wish Burnley well. As a sign of good faith I have two Burnley players in my Fantasy team.

ignoring all the FFP fervour, I think Gary has done well in the window and more than the players, its Gary who I'm most interested to see whether he has learnt anything from last season regarding substitutions. Some of his last season were either dire or too late I felt.

I reserve my judgement on Burnleys transfer business, only because I'm not sure. Big money doesnt always guarantee success (we should know!) but I do feel with whats at stake, the board should have gone further.

Time will soon tell for both teams though. roll on the new season already!

It is an utter disgrace that those who Rovers fans that have yrolled this sad sack have been banned, blocked and deleted yet it remains free to continue sabotaging every discussion. Personally, i think it works for he LT and every time i point this out I'm blocked and the comment deleted. How could you fall for it. Ignore the sad sack - no thumbs up, no thumbs down and no comments. Cue the abuse...[/p][/quote]with you 100% Trolling is an addiction and its no fan of either team. just a copy paste exercise to get a wind up.

Problem here is we have a troll talking to itself and slagging off a troll that is talking to itself and slagging back.

They might even be the same troll for all I know, or care.

However, if anyone wants to debate an issue about the prospects of our two clubs I am more than happy to oblige, even the troll in it's more lucid moments.

I don't mind a bit of banter, mickey taking, whatever; I am more than capable of dishing it out in return.

Just remember we have one of the oldest and greatest rivalries in the entire football worlds.

Don't let the idiot trolls from either side destroy that.

I have been to many "derby" matches since I first started going to games in 1963, amongst them Liverpool v Everton, Man U v Man C, Villa v West Brom, Arsenal v Spurs and on one memorable occasion Rangers v Celtic which was a totally unbelievable experience for a neutral in the Celtic end, but perhaps because I am a Rovers fan and bleed blue and white there is nothing to match our "little" scraps that barely anyone else notices.

It builds from the moment the fixtures are announced and as the game draws closer the tension mounts, becomes palpable, especially if you know someone who supports the other side with a fervour that matches your own.
