Joe Jordan suggests we don't have to look too far for a reminder of what Blackburn are capable of at Ewood Park.

Rovers are struggling at the foot of the table at the moment but remain at threat on home soil.

And if proof were needed, it is there in the shape of a 4-3 win against Arsenal last month.

We travel to Lancashire on Sunday on a run of five unbeaten matches in the Premier League including four wins and a draw last time out at highflying Newcastle.

But first team coach Joe insists we'll take nothing for granted.

"It’s a tough game, but we’re looking to get some points from it," he said.

"We’ve done well there in recent years but they are a team fighting for their lives and trying to change that around.

"It wasn’t long ago that they beat Arsenal in a thriller and that showed they are capable of matching and beating the best teams, so we’ll have to be at our best.

"They have got players who needed games under their belts and have that now and players doing exceptionally well. The forwards are a threat.

"We have to make sure we’re prepared."
