Key Player:

Morten Gamst Pedersen: Arguably Pedersen has been Blackburn's best player this season recapturing his old goal-scoring form which has helped his side earn several invaluable points. The Norwegian international possesses a peach of a left-foot and can deliver a menacing set-piece or two. To add to his weaponry he also has a dangerous long-throw that can wreak havoc in the penalty-box. The talented midfielder started his career in Norway with Tromso before moving to Lancashire in 2004. Since joining Blackburn Pedersen has racked up 257 appearances in all competitions scoring 48 goals.
