Roque And Dunny To Miss Spurs Match

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

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....

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

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.
