Rovers’ final six matches of the season include trips to Tottenham and Chelsea, so it is vital to take at least six points from their three remaining matches at Ewood Park, with Liverpool the visitors on Tuesday.
It’s a winnable match for Blackburn and odds of 11/4 (Sky Bet free bets) are surprisingly big about a team that landed a 1-1 draw at Anfield in December, with the Lancashire side having come very close to holding Manchester United a week ago.
Kean will be urging his team to put Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at West Brom behind them, with Yakubu and Junior Hoilett likely to trouble a Liverpool defence that aren’t keeping clean sheets at the moment, with the Yak available at 7/1 (Bet Victor £50 free bet) to score the first goal of the game.
Liverpool have the small matter of an FA Cup semi-final against Everton on Saturday and Kenny Dalglish will have one eye on this match even if he will be demanding total focus from his team who are bizarrely even money with some firms, although bet365 do offer a bigger 6/5 about an away win.
The Reds have just six wins from sixteen away games and were held to a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa on Saturday which saw Luis Suarez scramble a late equaliser. The Uruguayan is the one class act in the team and is available at 5/1 (Blue Square) to score the first goal of this game.
Even so, Liverpool have not won away from home since 31 January and that was at Molineux, with Rovers looking like outstanding value on the Draw No Bet market considering that the only way for the Merseyside club to save their season is an FA Cup triumph.
