Fit and ready

24 December 2013

Gary Bowyer has no fresh injury worries ahead of the Boxing Day match with Sheffield Wednesday.

The Rovers boss reports that everyone came through Saturday's win over Yeovil Town unscathed, so he has a fit and ready squad at his disposal for the Ewood Park encounter.

Josh King was absent at the weekend after not being risked due a lack of training following a dead leg, but he should come into contention for the Owls clash.

There's also promising news over long-term absentees Paul Robinson, Corry Evans and Dickson Etuhu.

Robinson played the first half in a behind closed-doors match on Monday, following up his 90 minute outing against Middlesbrough for the Reserves the previous week.

Corry Evans is also making good progress from an ankle injury sustained on international duty, whilst Dickson Etuhu is on the road to recovery.

Speaking on Monday, manager Gary Bowyer said: "Paul Robinson has had another 45 minutes under his belt, so he's nearing full fitness which is good.

"Corry Evans is doing alright, he's been out running so that has been pleasing news for us. He just has to catch up on fitness now.

"It might be a bit too soon for him to feature just before the end of the year but certainly going into the new year we are hoping he is coming back so that is good.

"Dickson Etuhu is still recovering and I don't think will be too far away."
