Injury not as bad as first feared

Steve Kean doesn't believe the injury sustained by Martin Olsson is a serious one.

The Swedish international was forced from the field of play early in the second half of Rovers' 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough after falling heavily on his shoulder.

Olsson has a history of shoulder injuries and it was thought initially that he had dislocated it once more, but that now appears not to be the case.

"Martin has had problems with his shoulder before when it has popped out and  dislocated," revealed the manager.

"We thought it had popped out, but he has said that it came out and went back in again, but he was in a bit of pain.

"Hopefully it won't be too bad, it'll probably be bruised in the morning."
