Kean happy to postpone Bolton match
Blackburn manager Steve Kean would agree to postpone next weekend's match at Bolton if Wanderers feel they are not ready to play after Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest during the FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham on Saturday night.
The Trotters midfielder is in a critical condition in the London Chest Hospital after collapsing on the pitch. Bolton's Barclays Premier League match at Aston Villa on Tuesday has already been postponed and Kean said Rovers would be guided by their Lancashire rivals in terms of Saturday's game at the Reebok Stadium.
Kean said: "I think the whole footballing world has come together. Whatever we have to do we would only respect what Bolton want us to do next weekend."
He added: "We hope he makes a full recovery but if they need a little bit more time and the game doesn't go ahead then we would respect that from Bolton's point of view.
"Everyone is taking advice from the hospital and experts in that we are hoping for progress in 24/48 hours and I know we are getting close to that point.
"We will respect everything that has to be done to facilitate a full recovery not only for Fabrice but his team-mates who could quite possibly be in a difficult position.
"We will get in communication (with Bolton). I am sure our directors will speak with theirs and I will speak to Owen (Coyle) myself later.
"We will communicate today and do the right thing."
