Fabio Nunes is also dropped in favour of Edinho Junior, while Bruno Ribeiro and Morten Gamst Pedersen return to the starting lineup, taking the places of Bradley Orr and David Dunn.

Meanwhile, Leicester City have opted to drop Jermaine Beckford and Matty James to the bench, bringing in Andy King and David Nugent.

Blackburn: Robinson; Givet, Dann, Ribeiro, Lowe; Pedersen, Murphy, Olsson, Etuhu; Edinho Junior, Nuno Gomes

Leicester: Schmeichel; De Laet, Konchesky, Morgan, Moore; Drinkwater, Marshall, King, Dyer; Vardy, Nugent
