El-Hadji Diouf has praised the Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce by saying he will be very hard to replace. Blackburn star Diouf returns to the Reebok Stadium alongside Allardyce as Rovers look to leapfrog their neighbours in the Premier League table on Sunday.

Now Owen Coyle has led unfancied Bolton to a fantastic start to the season which has left some fans dreaming of Europa League qualification.

Blackburn are now ahead of Tottenham in the league.
