Roque And Dunny To Miss Spurs Match

Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz will miss Saturday's visit of Tottenham and has gone as far as to see a consultant specialist next week.

The wantaway striker has now been out for a month and misses a fifth successive game in this crucial relegation run in.

In other squad news, Dave Dunn will more than likely miss out with a recurrence of his injury.

The good news is that Sas and Retro's love child Vince Grella has returned to training following a groin injury and is in contention for a place, more than likely, on the bench.

Here is the squad to pick from for the Big Man for the lunchtime kick off.

Rovers - Robinson, Bunn, Ooijer, Khizanishvili, Nelsen, Samba, Simpson, Warnock, Givet, Olsson, Villanueva, Tugay, Andrews, Diouf, Treacy, Mokoena, McCarthy, Roberts, Pedersen, Grella.

Rovers should start like this -

Robbo
Ooijer
Nelsen
Samba
Givet
Diouf
Warnock
Andrews
Throw In Taker/Weak Tackler/General Mooner
McCarthy
Roberts

is the loss of RSC that big a loss judging by his goal tally this season?

I think that he's a loss but maybe not massive, we have been doing well with Roberts and Benni up front at min.. though having Roque there would be better lol I hope we beat them simply cos my mate is a Spurs fan - and we need the points more than them....
