Boss waits on injury news

Rovers boss Owen Coyle hopes there are no fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday's trip to Bristol City.

Ben Marshall and Corry Evans were both doubts before Tuesday night's win over Nottingham Forest, but both came though the Ewood match and should be fit for the Ashton Gate clash.

Gordon Greer, Danny Graham and Wes Brown are all making progress in their return from injury and Coyle will give it as long as possible before deciding wether they'll travel to the south west with the rest of the squad.

"I think the group that we had available on Tuesday have all managed to come through that game," said the manager. "So fingers crossed we'll certainly have them available.

"Ben had tweaked his hip in the warm-up and needed a pain-killing injection to play. Even then at half-time we couldn't allow him to sit, he had to keep moving about in the dressing room. Then we just felt when we got to that period of the game we had to take him out to protect him. He wants to be out there and I'm sure he'll be okay.

"Corry had a fitness test on Tuesday after getting a bang above the calf, and he felt good to go and performed very well.

"Gordon Greer and Danny Graham continue to get better, but whether Saturday comes too soon we'll have to ascertain that in the next day or so but it would be great to have them available.

"Wes Brown has been training with the group but the challenge with Wes is he's not had that game under his belt that we would like so we'll just have to look at those players separately and see if they are available for Bristol City."
