Samba and Brett Out, Diouf doubtful

Samba and Brett Out, Diouf doubtful

Big Sam has been on the official Rovers website today announcing his intention to shuffle the pack for tomorrows trip to Wolves.

That could mean a first start for race against the clock boy Yildiray Basturk and youngster Amine Linganzi.

Rovers are without Chris Samba and Brett Emerton who are both still crocked a bit too much to risk.

El Hadji Diouf has also got a bout tonsillitis, presumably from arguing and shouting too much (expect Bom Bom to contract a similar illness in due course) so may not be asked to play.

Other than that, Rovers are good to go and Sam is keen to try out a few different formations/line ups without weakening the team.

VINCE GRELLA WATCH - Vincent is in the squad and will be asked to start tomorrow by the looks of things. He is 2/1 with SkyBet (please note this is a lie) to last more than 20 minutes before pulling up with a hamstring injury.

Come on you Rovers!

Not good with Samba and Brett being out but good news that we may see some others get a shot... Junior anyone?

Could go 4-4-2 Olsson-peds-dunn-junior in midfield.

Not a bad shout but does peders work in a two man midfield? we tried that at Stoke and it was EPIC FAIL!!!

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Blackburn`s game against Doncaster had already been called off. If it hadn`t, it definitely would with the Republic of Ireland`s decision to include two defenders in the final squad.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
