Ince left with Blackburn second from bottom in the Premier League
Blackburn hope to appoint a new manager by Saturday but say they will not be rushed into making a decision on who will replace Paul Ince.
Ince was sacked on Tuesday and chairman John Williams has already started the search for a new boss, with ex-Rovers boss Graeme Souness the favourite.
"We will endeavour to have a new manager in place for Saturday's game with Stoke City," said Williams.
"But there are no guarantees and we must ensure that we get the right man."
Ince was sacked after only six months in charge of Rovers, having joined the club in June.
After a winning start under his tenure, Rovers have won only three of their 17 Premier League matches this season, with the club slipping into the relegation places following a run of 11 straight matches without a victory.
