Blackburn boss Kean: We can't be embarrassed beating Bolton

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean says his players must go at Bolton Wanderers without a second thought.

The Reebok clash today is a huge relegation battle but also the first game for Wanderers since Fabrice Muamba's nightmare collapse at Tottenham.

Rovers boss Kean said: "Fabrice is making progress and I'm sure that will continue.

"We want to win the game. We're not going there thinking that because Fabrice has had a bad time we should feel embarrassed about winning.

"We're going to try and score and we will be celebrating if we do. But that doesn't take away from how much we respect Bolton or Fabrice.

"We showed our respect by wearing shirts in support of a full recovery for Fabrice.

"But come 3pm on the day we have to make sure we play the game and not the occasion."
