I used to culture myoblasts from chicken embryos, fibroblasts were a
random problem, sometimes there were more of them sometimes less.  What
we used to do was to wait 2-3 days, till the myotubes start to form, and
then add BrdU to the media to avoid the fibroblasts to proliferate.  We
also noticed that myoblasts/myotubes were happier with a limited amount
of fibroblasts keeping them company.  I never transfected those
cultures, so I am not sure if this helps.

Good luck
