Big Sam explains Dunny substitution
Big Sam has explained that he took Dave Dunn off for Brett Emerton on Sunday due his fear of Dunny picking up a fresh injury.
Dunn has been an inspiration for Rovers this season but has fallen foul time and time again to injury problems.
Against Chelsea, when Big Sam spotted Dunn struggling, he acted qucikly to stop a small problem becoming a bigger one.
Allardyce, speaking to rovers.co.uk said - 'I wasn't liking Dunny stretching his calves and things like that,' said Allardyce to the club's website.
'It was telling me that if he carried on he might tweak a muscle again, so we took him off and put Morten in there and then of course we felt Niko had battled a lonely battle so we put a fresh pair of legs in with Jason Roberts.
'So in the end it worked very well.'
So that clears that up then.
