Reports : Emerton Out For 'Nine Months'

Reports : Emerton Out For 'Nine Months'

Brett Emerton could be out of action for up to nine months after sustaining a cruciate knee injury against Middlesbrough.

The Aussie midfielder was replaced by Dave Dunn in the second half of Saturdays' game and is reported to be heading home for surgery.

The Daily Mirror is first off the mark witht the news - 'The long-serving star will miss the survival fight and the start of the next season after the freak injury,'

'He has been given time off to go home and be with relatives while he recovers.'

If this report is accurate this is a crushing blow for both player and club.

Brett has been arguably Rovers most consistent player this season.

Loan signing Sam?

Big Sam desperately trying to find a striker. I think the board want the RSC money, as City wont come back in the Summer for him or offer as much. reports that you in talks about a oan deal for Bent.

Certainly seems that way.I would now say competition on right wing is a pressing matter.

Im devestated for the team and Brett, really bad news considering he isnt one to be injured that much either. Diouf could prove an even better signing now, and Dunn/Grella really need to stay fit.

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
