Blackburn Rovers will need a victory away to Charlton Athletic this weekend in order to ease pressure off manager Steve Kean's shoulders.

All eyes will be on Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean when he takes his team to The Valley to face Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

The Scotsman's position at the Lancashire club is believed to be hanging in the balance and while global adviser Shebby Singh has claimed that Kean is safe for now, a defeat against the Addicks could change that stance dramatically.

Charlton boss Chris Powell will be hoping that his side can secure a consecutive win after defeating Ipswich Town 2-1 last weekend.

Powell is likely to include Ricardo Fuller and Salim Kerkar in his starting lineup, while Blackburn are expected to boast a side with the likes of Danny Murphy, Nuno Gomes and Jordan Rhodes.

Recent form:

Charlton: DLLLW
Blackburn: LDWWL

Possible lineups:

Charlton: Hamer; Morrison, Solly, Cort, Jackson; Green, Stephens, Wilson, Wright-Phillips' Kerkar, Fuller

Blackburn: Robinson; Orr, Dann, Givet, Martin Olsson; Ribeiro, Nunes, Murphy, Etuhu; Gomes, Rhodes

Sports Mole says: 1-2
