Blackburn's defeat at Sunderland was a real kick in the teeth for Steve Kean with Rovers leading 1-0 until the 84th minute at the Stadium of Light. This week they take on West Brom who themselves are on a poor run. Roy Hodgson's Baggies have won just once in their last six league games and defeat at Ewood Park would see Blackburn go within two of their Black Country opponents. Every week Kean comes out fighting and this will be no different - but his position remains a question of serious contention for the majority of Rovers fans.
