Fingers crossed for striker

Paul Lambert is hopeful that Danny Graham will have recovered in time to face Huddersfield Town at Ewood on Saturday.

The on-loan striker limped out after just 15 minutes of last weekend's goalless draw at Molineux with a tightness in his hamstring.

But the Rovers boss has his fingers crossed that the player's early action in coming off has prevented any long-term injury and that he'll be available for selection this Saturday.

"He is doing okay so we'll see how he is tomorrow and hopefully he'll be okay," said Lambert.

"We hope that we caught it in time and that he never pulled it or strained so fingers crossed he'll be okay."

Rovers will be without Tommy Spurr for the match against the Terriers due to an achilles problem, but Hope Akpan has recovered from the hip injury that forced him to miss the Wolves match, whilst Corry Evans and Jason Lowe have trained well all week.

Lambert added: "Tommy will still be a doubt as he is struggling, but I was really pleased with Matt Kilgallon with how he played last Saturday.

"Corry, we had to watch him after his operation but he has trained this week so we'll see how he goes. Hope has trained as well so hopefully he is going to be okay."

"With Jason, what he did on Saturday was really pleasing considering he had been out an awful long time. He played the full game and never looked out of place."

Tickets for Saturday's match are available in the Blackburn End and Darwen End at the fantastic price of just £10 for Adults, £5 for Seniors and 18-21 year-olds and just £2 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
