ALAN Shearer has said he would be willing to talk to Venky's about the vacant Blackburn Rovers managerial position, ahead of this afternoon's Championship visit of Wolves.

The former Ewood darling told the BBC earlier today he had had no contact at all with Rovers' owners but confirmed he would be wi.ling to listen if they approached him.

Meanwhile the biggest home crowd of the season is expected this afternoon as Eric Black takes charge of his first game at Ewood Park.

After a solid 30 minutes against Nottingham Forrest mid-week, Colin Kazim Richards makes his first start for Rovers since his return from injury. Nuno Gomes drops to the bench.

Rovers will continue with their 3-5-2 formation, with Grant Hanley, Scott Dann and Gael Givet forming a central defensive three.
