Injury boost for Bowyer

5 February 2015

Gary Bowyer will have close to a full complement of players to choose from for this weekend’s clash with Watford.

The squad came through the victory over Fulham unscathed and the Rovers boss is just waiting on the availability of a couple of his frontmen ahead of the trip to Vicarage Road.

Josh King (back), Rudy Gestede (thigh) and David Dunn (calf) all missed the Ewood encounter against the Cottagers, but Bowyer is hopeful of having at least one body back.
 
“Josh King trained for the first time today,” said the manager. “So we will see how he reacts tomorrow.
 
“Rudy Gestede has been back in training since Tuesday, so that’s positive for us.
 
“The only other one is Dunny, who isn’t quite there yet.
 
“With a lot of games coming up we are going to need the whole squad and there will be opportunities for everyone.”

Gestede scored a dramatic last-gasp leveller in last season's corresponding fixture with Watford, which ended 3-3.
