BLACKBURN Rovers’ relegation battle is getting a bit hairy – with fans growing a ‘Givet beard for survival’.
In honour of bearded favourite Gael Givet, Rovers fans have started a Twitter campaign for fans to copy his facial hair to inspire a great escape.
It will certainly be a close shave but Rovers are hoping they don’t finish a whisker away from safety.
To join the campaign, which has been backed by Givet himself, go to #GivetBeardForSurvival on Twitter.
Organisers of the campaign are also urging Givet beard growers to make a donation to East Lancashire Hospice
