Jon Stead looking forward to match against former club Blackburn Rovers

Joe Jones

Notts County striker Jon Stead has fond memories of his time at Blackburn Rovers, the Magpies' final pre-season opponents, but insists that the match will be all about ironing out the last few flaws within the team.

John Sheridan's side will take on the former Premier League champions on Sunday at Meadow Lane, their last match before the 2016-17 Football League season gets underway.

"I have brilliant memories of my time at Blackburn," said Stead, who joined the Lancashire club from Huddersfield Town in 2004. 

"They gave me my first chance of Premier League football and I really enjoyed it.

"The season we stayed up was a highlight and scoring against Manchester United was nice too. I had a good time there, so I am looking forward to it.

"But more important than that it's about us getting our house in order. We have to make sure we are right and iron out the little mistakes."

I can recall my brother going on about Jon Stead signing for Blackburn (he likes them), I said then he was overrated and now look where he is - it never really worked out for him until he moved down. He looked decent but never a Premier League player in my opinion.

He's almost certain to score now.
