Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean is failing to mend bridges with Christopher Samba.

The Sun says Kean wanted peace before Saturday's crunch home date with QPR.

The unsettled centre-back was pencilled in to play in a behind-closed-doors reserve fixture against Carlisle United yesterday.

Talks between the pair have so far failed to find a solution, even though Kean is desperate for defensive cover with Gael Givet facing a three-match ban for his red card at Arsenal.
