Blackburn Rovers boss Paul Ince expects big things from 19 year-old Irish midfielder Alan Judge after an impressive preseason.

"He's been excellent, I think against Wolves in the first half he was fantastic," Ince told the Rovers website.

"He is full of energy, he's a young lad but he's not fazed because he is playing with the first team, he puts himself about.

"He's a joy just not on the pitch to watch him play, but a joy in training, he gets on with it, doesn't moan and I think he is one that can feature definitely this season."
