Givet returns to face Albion

The Blackburn Rovers defender Gaël Givet trained yesterday and is expected to be in contention to face West Bromwich Albion on Saturday despite suffering from heart palpitations in the 2-1 defeat at Sunderland on Sunday.

Blackburn have refuted reports of money problems after Barclays Bank demanded a £10m injection from owners Venky's. Finance director Karen Silk said: "There is no financial crisis and there is absolutely no danger to the players' and staff's wages."
