Emerton A Fitness Doubt
Blackburn Rovers right-back (and sometime right-midfielder) Brett Emerton is likely to miss the match with Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
Having missed the draw with Fulham a week earlier Emerton limped off at half time during the defeat to West Ham United on Saturday with what has now been confirmed by Mark Hughes as a recurrence of his groin injury, the same injury that ruled him out of the Fulham match.
Hughes told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website: "Brett had a recurrence of his groin injury so had to come off."
Should Emerton miss the match with Wigan then he is almost certain to be pulled out of the Australian squad for their latest World Cup Qualifier with China on 26th of Match.
