Things have gone from bad to worse for Blackburn Rovers as Robbie Savage has suffered a broken leg!
Following a challenge with Watford's Al Bangura in Tuesday nights 2-1 defeat at Watford Savage was taken to hospital where x-rays conformed the former Welsh International had indeed broken his leg. Mark Hughes revealed:
"I've just got news from the hospital that it is a break. How severe it is I don't know as yet.
"Obviously it has come on the top of a performance and a result that we weren't expecting, it has not been a good evening."
On the tackle itself Sparky added:
"People have said that it wasn't a good tackle but I've not seen it, I'll need to look at it so I can't really comment. I hope that it wasn't anything untoward or a poor challenge."
The latest setback comes hot on the heels of the season ending injuries to Steven Reid (cruciate ligament) and Andre Ooijer (broken ankle):
"In the space of 10-14 days we've lost three players again to long injuries, just as we felt we were getting in decent shape and welcoming a number of players back," Sparky also said.
"It has been hard to take, we need as many good players available as we can to win Premier League games, tonight we were a little bit short."
The injury is likely to sideline Savage for the remainder of the season and is a MASSIVE blow to Rovers' UEFA and FA Cup campaigns and quest to again challenge for a top six Premiership place.
So the curse of the captains armband has struck again Ryan "the Admiral" Nelsen the regular Rovers captain has been sidelined all season so far but "should" (touch wood!) be back soon. Steven Reid was captaining the Republic of Ireland when he picked up his first injury this season, Andre Ooijer had taken the captains armband in Lucas Neill's absence earlier in the season and now Savage was filling in for Nelsen after Neill's departure, who will want the armband next...
