Man Utd youngster Jones ready for emotional Blackburn match

Manchester United defender Phil Jones hopes to face former club Blackburn Rovers tomorrow.

If Jones is fit, it would be the first time he has faced his old club following a £17million summer move to Old Trafford, having been part of the Blackburn side beaten 7-1 in the corresponding fixture last term.

"I'm still a massive fan and have a lot of friends at the club," Jones told United Review.

"As soon as we come off the pitch I always look to see how Blackburn have got on. I am sure things will improve.

"Unfortunately they are at the bottom of the table now. But they are a lot better than their league position shows.

"We won't find it easy.

"I know what sort of squad Blackburn have and there are some cracking players there. We can't take them lightly."
