Dunn could make the difference against Spurs
To me it seems no coincidence that Rovers run of bore draws and the below par outing at St.Andrews has coincided with the injury to the Blackburn supporting David Dunn.
Dunny is indeed back in contention for Saturday and the home game against Spurs - and boy do we need him.
The defensive solidarity is back in the Allardyce ranks (last night aside) but the problem clearly lies up the other end of the pitch.
There is no link at present between attack and midfield. Strikers are starved of service and midfielders are lacking in support.
Prior to the last four games we have played in the league, David was THE link between midfield and attack and it is only now that he is out can we truly appreciate the difference he makes to our side.
The lung busting runs and the goal input from midfield are missing, that special little WOW factor that Rovers had when Dunny was in the side cannot be replaced by anyone else.
The topic of why we depend so heavily on one man is for another day but for now let's state the obvious...
Blackburn Rovers need David Dunn back and fast.
