Kean will field strong Rovers side

Blackburn boss Steve Kean is planning to play a reasonably strong side in Wednesday night's Carling Cup fourth-round clash against Newcastle at Ewood Park.

Blackburn owners have faith in Kean

Under-fire Kean, whose team sit bottom of the Barclays Premier League table, is desperate for a win and he is unlikely to make wholesale changes from the side beaten 2-1 by Tottenham on Sunday.

He will have to make at least one alteration with Steven Nzonzi suspended after picking up a fifth yellow card of the season while Vince Grella (hip), Ryan Nelsen (knee), Michel Salgado (hamstring), David Dunn and Scott Dann (both calf) are injured and Jordan Slew cup-tied.

Provisional squad: Robinson, Lowe, Samba, Givet, Dann, Olsson, Givet, Petrovic, Hoilett, Roberts, Bunn, Hanley, Formica, Pedersen, Vukcevic, Rochina, Yakubu, Goodwillie, Anderson, Ribeiro, Aley, Cotton, Blackman.
