Samba receives praise from Blackburn boss Allardyce

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce has heaped praise on defender Christopher Samba saying he is one of the keys to the Rovers staying up this season.

"He's one of our major assets, not only as a defender, but in getting us opportunities to score goals," Allardyce said.

"This player will strike fear throughout the Premier League with his aerial power and I'm going to use it to its absolute maximum because it's something that we'll be renowned for.

"The opposition will worry every time they play us because of the aerial power of this guy. He'll not only be known as a great defender but someone who makes opportunities for us to score goals."
