Winger Ince had to pull out of the England Under-21 squad after taking a knock to his knee.
But he insists nothing will keep him out of the crunch trip to their Lancashire rivals, with both sides hovering nervously above the relegation zone.
"I had a sore knee but I'm okay for Friday," Ince told Press Association Sport.
"I have to be ready, it's Blackburn! It's the local derby. It's a big game for us and hopefully it can set us up for a good end to the season."
