Rovers potentially without SIX for Chelsea

Rovers potentially without SIX for Chelsea

Goalkeeper Paul Robinson (calf), captain Ryan Nelsen (knee), Lars Jacobsen (hernia) and Vince Grella (calf) are all going to be absent from the side for Chelsea at home on Sunday afternoon.

The Famous Four who are out will become a silly six as Franco Di Santo cannot play against his parent club either.

Add into this that Gael Givet is also touch and go with a groin injury and the cracks seem to appear!

This leaves Rovers with problems at centre back as Chris Samba and Phil Jones are the only recognised centre backs in the squad that are left!

That leaves us with the prospect of Pascal Chimbonda/Michel Salgado/Keith Andrews playing at centre back alongside Chris Samba.

Going to be tough kids...

That might not be the case with Chelsea in such poor form, you guys still stand a chance against us.
