Blackburn Rovers team news update emerges ahead of Bristol City clash

Published

on

The likes of Lewis Holtby and Joe Rankin-Costello are expected to be back in contention to play some part for Blackburn Rovers against Bristol City on Wednesday night according to Lancashire Live

Striker and top scorer Adam Armstrong is also said to be in contention, although the midweek clash may come too early for the frontman, meaning that his return could be pencilled in for the Norwich City game on Saturday alternatively.

The Ewood Park club are also awaiting to see what the extent of injuries to Bradley Dack and Lewis Travis are, with the midfield duo having both been taken off in the defeat to Brentford last Friday.

Dack is once again feared to have suffered the same cruciate knee ligament injury which kept him out of action for the best part of a year, with the report stating that it could well be the other knee this time around.

Meanwhile a win for Rovers on home turf could see them move up to 13th place if Queens Park Rangers drop points in their next game.

The Verdict 

Blackburn are really starting to count the cost of the rising amount of injuries that they have within the current squad and at this rate their season is going to finish with a whimper after a promising start.

They’re now more than 15 points adrift of the top six at the time of writing and now may be looking at planning for the next campaign after falling short of the play-off spots this term after they looked like surprise candidates.

The remaining fixtures offer Tony Mowbray the chance to experiment with his side, with some fringe players sure to get more opportunities with so many players being sidelined at present.

Finishing strongly has to be target from now on, whilst everyone will have their fingers crossed over the situation surrounding the fitness of Dack.
