Blackburn manager Mark Hughes sees ex-Toon striker Craig Bellamy as the man to take Rovers to the UEFA Cup in their Premiership clash with champions Chelsea at Ewood Park.
Although Hughes will be forced to reshuffle his defence, he hopes his fire-power will be too much for the Blues, as John Terry misses his first Premiership game of the season. Terry needed stitches in a leg wound after a crunching tackle by Wayne Rooney in Saturday's 3-0 win against Manchester United.
Newcastle must hope Chelsea get the better of the home side, and Rovers lose to Man City on Sunday. Jose Mourinho said he would be happy to rest Terry, Frank Lampard and Joe Cole from the final two games of the season if he was asked by Sven-Goran Eriksson, the other game of course is against Newcastle.
Blackburn (from): Friedel, Neill, Khizanishvili, Nelsen, Emerton, Savage, Kuqi, Dickov, Bellamy, Pedersen, Reid, Mokoena, Tugay, Pongolle, Gallagher, Matteo, Bentley, Peter, Enckelman.
