Blackburn draw Finland's MyPa in UEFA Cup

Blackburn Rovers have been drawn against Finnish side MyPa in the second qualifying round of the Uefa Cup.

Rovers, who beat Lithuanian side FK Vetra in the Intertoto Cup to reach this stage, have a place in the first round proper as their incentive.

Rovers chief executive Tom Finn insisted they would treat the Finns with every respect.

He said: "We're not taking anything for granted, that would be unprofessional. We'll treat them with respect, but clearly we'll be looking to progress.

"We'll take it one step at a time, but our run last year has given us a seeding which gives us a better chance of progressing.

"Credit to Mark who wanted to use the Intertoto Cup and now we want to join the other English clubs in the first round proper."
