Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean has indicated that key defenders Christopher Samba and Martin Olsson could be back for the visit of Swansea City on the weekend.

The pair have been sidelined with hamstring injuries but are a big chance of returning when the Swans come to Ewood Park this coming Saturday. Kean did say, however, that tomorrow's Carling Cup quarter-final against Cardiff City will be too soon.

"Hopefully there'll be some lads that'll make the Swansea game," Kean said.

"They won't make the game on Tuesday, but Samba and Olsson should be fine for the Swansea game which will be massive for us."
