Striker given the all-clear after injury scare.

Rovers have been given some good news following this afternoon's 4-2 win over Huddersfield Town.

The major concern at the John Smith's Stadium was for striker Rudy Gestede who had to be stretchered off after a collision with Terriers captain Peter Clarke.

The former Cardiff City frontman was knocked unconscious in the clash, and after a lengthy period of treatment on the pitch, was eventually stretchered off and taken straight to hospital.

At the hospital Gestede underwent a scan and thankfully the results came back clear and he was allowed to return home.

Manager Gary Bowyer tonight confirmed the news: "Rudy is out of hospital and all the scans are clear which is great news."

The striker also confirmed all is well via his twitter account:
