Blackburn Rovers are facing up to the prospect of a central defender crisis ahead of the start of the new Premier League season!!
Key defender Ryan Nelsen and Christopher Samba, along with Paul Gallagher (who's future remains uncertain anyway) all picked up knocks in the 2-0 defeat at Dundee United on Saturday and are all now major doubts for the match with Manchester City on Saturday!!
Allardyce told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website: "Unfortunately I think from our point of view that the game was over when Gally, Ryan and Chris got injuries, and they are looking pretty serious as well for next week.
"We will just hope and keep our fingers crossed through the week that we can get some of them fit."
Sam Allardyce doesn't yet know the full extent and seriousness of the injuries, however, he concedes that hamstring strains to Samba and Gallagher and a knee problem (possibly medial ligament) with Nelsen leave us sweating on all three but he doesn't think they'll make it!?
He added: "With Ryan it looks like a medial ligament, and Gally and Chris are hamstrings. We'll know better as to how seriously they are injured on Sunday and Monday when we get scans on them, obviously.
"But all three are pretty doubtful for next week."
With Vince Grella and David Dunn already confirmed as being out and an International schedule to content with this week as well we'll be left worrying EVEN MORE that further injuries could be collected on Tuesday/Wednesday so everyone best pray as much as they can!!
