Colin Kazim-Richards: Fit again for Blackburn

Blackburn manager Henning Berg has no new injury concerns ahead of Saturday's Championship clash with Millwall at Ewood Park.

Gael Givet (knee), Jason Lowe (hamstring), and Colin Kazim-Richards (muscle strain) have all recovered from their respective injury concerns to give Berg a number of selection options.

Only David Dunn (calf) and Leon Best (cruciate ligament) are sidelined, with Portuguese winger Fabio Nunes building match fitness after a hamstring problem.

Danny Murphy was substituted after an hour during Rovers' 4-1 victory at Peterborough, but the substitution was a tactical one rather than due to injury.

Murphy was dropped to the bench in recent games against Derby, Watford, and Sheffield Wednesday after a run of poor form, but has re-established his position in the heart of midfield under Berg.

The recently-appointed Norwegian oversaw his first win at London Road, and will be hoping to continue to build fans' support at home to Kenny Jackett's Lions.

Jackett will be able to call upon the services of Nadjim Abdou for the trip to Lancashire.

The midfielder missed last Sunday's 1-0 win against Leeds due to the birth of his daughter and he is likely to take the place of Liam Trotter.

Trotter, who started against United last week, is a major doubt with a hamstring strain and faces a late test to prove his fitness.

Top scorer Darius Henderson could return for Millwall, having been sidelined with a similar problem recently, but he will likely have to settle for a place on the bench with Andy Keogh and Chris Wood having established their partnership in his absence.

Skipper Paul Robinson remains sidelined by a pelvic problem.
