Jason Roberts has become the latest Blackburn player to come down with swine flu.
Roberts has been withdrawn from the squad that travels to Trafford tomorrow to play alleged Manchester club Man United and placed in isolation, presumably to work on his shooting as well as recover.
Manager Sam Allardyce, who has suffered with the illness himself in the last few days, does have good news to report though in that more or less everybody else has recovered and is ready to roll.
Allardyce, speaking to Sky Sports News - 'I'm okay now - I think we've only Jason Roberts,'
'There was another player suffering with it earlier in the week and Jason looks like it now, so we've left him at home and sent the doctor out to see him.
'The symptoms look very much like the general swine flu symptoms, so we will obviously go and get a full check on him.'
Dave Dunn and Chris Samba are back in the squad now after being laid low for Chelsea last week, Dunn even managed a cheeky twenty minutes against Peterborough midweek and looked healthy.
Allardyce continued - 'We've just got Chris Samba back, who seems to have been affected the most by the symptoms,'
'He's been left pretty weak, I think he has lost about four or five kilos. It is an incredible amount of fluid he has lost.
'We'll have to check if he is strong enough to be capable of being selected for the squad on Saturday. We'll run him through training today and see where we go from there.
'(Pascal) Chimbonda is fit from injury, Vince Grella is back in training for us but it might be a bit too soon for him. The squad has strengthened from last week, which is very important when you are going to Old Trafford.'
So all in all good news. Lets get into em tomorrow evening.
