You certainly know it is not your day when you pick up four injuries in one match but the latest injury outbreak does beg the question... Will we ever see our ideal first choice line up out there at the same time?
Every time a leading player comes back from injury it doesn't seem to take too long for someone to sprain their ankle/pull their hamstring/have their wisdom teeth removed to ruin the balance of the team.
Take this weekend for example. Jason Lowe, Martin Olsson, Gael Givet and Michel Salgado all came off in yesterday's desperate and heartbreaking 2-1 defeat to Sunderland which causes for next weekend. But there are other players who were missing this weekend who should be back for next time out.
Rovers boss Kean told the Rovers website - 'Jason Lowe has a bit of concussion and the doctor has put a neck brace on him as a precaution,' said the Rovers boss of the injury situation.
'When you get a nasty head knock like that you have to protect him. But we hope he will be okay.
'We had to take Gael Givet off the pitch as he was feeling heart palpitations and he's had that before where his heartbeat goes into a different rhythm and he couldn't really manage to shake it off.
'So we had to look at the bigger picture and err on the side of caution on that one. Thankfully it seems to have settled down now and he seems okay.
'Martin Olsson has felt his hamstring again and Michel Salgado thinks he has cracked his ribs, so it hasn't been a good day for us but we hope to have Ruben Rochina and Steven Nzonzi back for the next game and maybe Junior Hoilett who failed a fitness test this morning.
'So we might get a few bodies back.'
Question is Steve, what the heck are you doing to them on the training ground to make them this susceptible to injury?!
