Phew, Santa Cruz's Injury Not Serious!!!

Phew, Santa Cruz's Injury Not Serious!!!

Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz's injury (sustained in the defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon) isn't as bad as first feared.

The Paraguayan International picked up a knock to his Achilles as he equalised (Wolves had gone 1-0 up only for Matt Derbyshire to equalise, they then went ahead again before Santa Cruz levelled things once more, before Wolves went on to win the Molineux encounter 4-2) and had to be taken off with it initially feared that he could miss the start of the season but Paul Ince has moved to quash these fears.

Ince told Sky Sports News: "Roque's fine. He got a knock on his Achilles.

"I had my heart in my mouth for a minute sat up there in the directors' box.

"I've had a chat with the physio and it's going to be two or three days, but he'll be ready come the start of the campaign.

"Roque's 19 goals were very important for us in how well we did last year. He's fine and he's all geared for the start of the new season
."

We don't want to be without anyone for the start of the season, but Santa is especially important for us particularly against a potential rival to a UEFA Cup spot this season.

Good news, he would be a loss for any team in that league. I don't think that we'll sell him anyway tho i dont know how many more seasons we can hang on to him. Good to see "Oztheman" making a relevant and valued comment again. I'm sur he just wants to climb the "Top Rovers Fans" leaderboard on this site!!!!!....

Blackburn Confirm Caddis Arrival

Caddis, who left Bury at the end of a short deal, was given his chance due to his previous with Blackburn boss Mowbray at Celtic. But the ex-Birmingham full back has secured a deal.

Samuel Signing Sealed

Blackburn have signed Reading forward Dominic Samuel, who once worked with Mowbray at Coventry - also loaned to Colchester, Dagenham and Gillingham, ending last season at Ipswich.

Just Saying, But What If....

Blackburn will do well under the boss. However, for arguments sake, if Rovers didn't secure an instant Championship return what would happen to Mowbray?

Caddis At The Double

Caddis has now spent the past three weeks with Blackburn, joining the club in Austria last week, and Mowbray, his boss at Celtic earlier in his career, is close to making his decision.
