Diouf: Blackburn a match for anyone at Ewood Park

El Hadji Diouf admits Blackburn Rovers are far happier playing at home.

Last week's home victory over Hull City was Rovers' third in succession after previous Premier League triumphs against Fulham and Wigan.

"Definitely, because when we play at home we are not scared," Diouf told the Lancashire Telegraph

"We play good football and we have got a good record at home.

"The game against Bolton is a big game for the club. It's a big game for me and for everybody because the manager used to work for Bolton, me too as well.

"But you saw the game against Hull. We were very happy with that result because we knew after the game at Stoke (when Rovers lost 3-0) that we needed that win.

"We got the three points against Hull, so why can we not look forward in the Premier League?"
