Sav To Avoid Surgery

Sav To Avoid Surgery

A quick bit of news for you here guys.

Blackburn Rovers will be without Robbie Savage for the next month - but he will NOT need knee surgery.

The ex-Wales midfielder, 33, was forced off at Tottenham on Sunday just before the half time whistle. But although scans revealed some damage to the medial ligament, it will not require an op.

A Rovers source told The Sun: 'The news isn't as bad as we feared.'

It is a case of good news bad news but I think we'll be grateful that he won't be out too long and this will give 'the binman' (cheers Roversman) the chance to excel as well.

I dnt know wht fans hate savage so much... he play acts, kicks, and is in players faces... but so do most premier league footballers. He runs non-stop in every game and plays to win - nothing wrong with that!

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
