'If It's Football, It's Vital'

No Fitness Concerns With Warnock

The sight of seeing Blackburn Rovers left-back Stephen Warnock limping away from a match is one of the worst we could see, as he is rapidly becoming one of Rovers' most instrumental performers.

However, this was the sight witnessed during Saturday's 4-2 Premier League victory over Reading as an ankle knock forced him off to be replaced by Zurab Khizanishvili on 55 minutes (this enabled him to play more football for Rovers in one half that he had the entire season prior to this!) But Rovers manager Mark Hughes believes that this is not a major concern and he should be fit for the match with Tottenham Hotspur (the big one, for us VBers if nothing else!!!) next Sunday.

Hughes told Radio Rovers: "He just got a bang, we don't think it is anything more than that. It is extremely sore at the moment, but we don't anticipate it will be a problem."

Should Warnock be ruled out then as much as he would be missed, and as important as he has become Bruno Berner or Martin Olsson could step in and do a job.
Hughes Da Man
Thats a relief, but my boy olsson could step in, a champ in the making that kid lol
sasman
I never thought it would be anything serious so it's nice to have those sentiments confirmed. Can't wait for the banter with Spuds to begin!
roversman
It's getting closer isn't it, we can well and truely look down our noses at them can't we lol!
Hughes Da Man
Spuds lost 3-1 lollll, we really gotta beat these guys
sasman
Its important to keep ur 1st choice players as fit as ...... If this means taking him off in a match that Rovers were winning easily, no offense to Reading cos I like the team and Coppel but they did have an off day on Sat, I think that Olsson, Nolan etc could cover for Warnock and I know Berner is on the way back as well but does anyone think that if Warnock was to be out for a while, would we be short at left back?? We have very good reserves but none with great experience
Clint
I don't think we would be short at left-back at all, however, I don't think anyone would have the quality that Stevie W does (but that is only because I think he is so good) but they would fill in nicely, and I would be happy seeing them do so.
Hughes Da Man
sasman - Let's not get carried away dude, Spurs could be dangerous now, they HAVE to beat us (well at least not lose) or I think Martin Jol is a dead man. The match as extra importance now doesn't it.
Hughes Da Man
i hope jol is still in his job for our game cos if he goes it could have that galvanisin effect it seems to have on teams and we could get the backlash of that!
durks de rover
I can't see Martin Jol leaving before we play Spurs, I do however feel that could be his last match in charge if they lose. Obviously I want us to win, but I do quite like Jol, just don't like Spurs lol!
Hughes Da Man
i agree with HDM, good coach, #$@# club lol. We gotta win it, no doubt about it, anything but a win and those spuds will raid our site
sasman
They'll raid it anyway won't they lol!
Hughes Da Man
yeah telling us wat a massive club they are!!!
MikeyGamst
yeah what a massive pile pf *****e they are- *****ers!
durks de rover
Warnock - again another great buy - I hope he's ok as he has become another key player for us
