Squad illness will not prevent Blackburn cup-tie going ahead

Blackburn have announced Tuesday night's Carling Cup tie against Peterborough will go ahead despite confirming two cases of swine flu at the club. Rovers would have needed to apply for special dispensation from the Football League to postpone the tie against Peterborough, however they are happy to play the match.

Rovers club secretary Andrew Pincher said: "There has been speculation in the national media following confirmation of sickness within the camp, but we can reassure all supporters that the tie will go ahead as planned."
