J-Rob could yet be a Rover again
Rovers transfer listed forward Jason Roberts could yet have a future at Blackburn, if a move for the want away striker doesn't materialise.
At the current asking price that Blackburn have set and the wage demands the player has set there is always going to be a difficulty in getting interest from a new club.
With less than 8 days before the transfer window slams shut, Roberts could yet be left calling Ewood Park his home - something Sam Allardyce has insisted he will have to fight for if that turns out to be the case.
Sam (with reference to tonight's game) spoke to Sky Sports - "Jason won`t be involved. I have decided he is available for transfer and if I play him, I could risk him getting injured.
"That would be the wrong thing to do.
"We have made a decision between us and we will see what develops in the next eight days.
"If he doesn`t go anywhere, then he doesn`t go anywhere.
"It is about being here and knuckling down and getting on with it if that is the case.
"He would like to move on and if that is the case, we could use what money we get in to maybe top up someone else we haven`t targeted at the moment."
