Dickson still a concern

Dickson still a concern

Rovers are looking fairly healthy ahead of tomorrow's big match with Wolves with only 3 injury concerns putting a dampener on an otherwise steady looking list of potential starters.

Dickson Etuhu is the main fresh doubt after missing the midweek clash with Nottingham Forest through a pesky virus, he could still play a part but Black admits he is playing catch up to a certain extent.

Markus Olsson is still out with a hamstring complaint and of course Leon Best is also absent with his long term leg injury but asides from that Rovers are good to go.

Colin Kazim-Richards came through his late appearance in Robin Hood country and will again likely be taking part after his return from his injury complaint that ruled him out for a month.

Black told the Rovers official website - 'Dickson came in this morning and went on the bike a little bit in the gym but I would say he is still touch and go for the weekend, so we'll see how he improves over the next 48 hours.

'But aside from that we aren't bad, obviously Leon Best is still absent and Markus Olsson is still out.'

'Colin Kazim-Richards trained today and he was fine so he's in the squad once more,' added Black.

'Obviously he was a long time out and you can't expect him to just turnaround have a few training sessions and be what he was before.

'He's trained again this morning and looked fine but he's not yet fully fit and fully firing, he'll need a couple of games before he's anywhere near that.

'But it'll be up to me to decide whether I feel he can do enough for us to introduce him or not.'
