Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes is backing Roque Santa Cruz for an "outstanding" season.

Hughes said: "Only two games gone and Roque has two goals on the board already. - I believe he is going to have an outstanding season.

"Roque hasn't got a car at the moment so he's getting plenty of lifts off Benni, so if there is any rivalry it's friendly.

"All my strikers can play together in different combinations and Roque and Benni certainly have that capacity.

"Benni likes to come off and get involved in the build-up and Roque goes long and gives us an aerial threat."
