Duo doubtful for Forest clash

17 October 2016

Rovers have doubts over the fitness of Gordon Greer and Corry Evans ahead of tomorrow's match against Nottingham Forest.

Greer didn't reappear after in the second half of Saturday's draw with Ipswich Town, whilst midfielder Evans limped off midway through the second half at Ewood Park.

Both are unlikely to be fit in time for the Ewood Park clash, whilst Danny Graham will also miss the match against Philippe Montanier's side, but Jason Lowe is available once more after serving his one-match suspension.

"We have one or two injury problems that we've been beset with since the start of the season, so that hasn't helped," the manager told Rovers PlayerHD.

"Gordon Greer has little to no chance of being available tomorrow night. Corry Evans also came out of the game on Saturday and he'll be a doubt for the match as well.

"Danny Graham is still out, Adam Henley and Elliott Ward are the long term ones.

"So we've not been blessed in respect of injuries but it is part and parcel of the game.

"What we have got to do is make sure that the ones that are fit and available, they give their best, play at their maximum and if they can do that then we can win the game."

Tickets for Tuesday night's match will be on sale up to the 7.45pm kick-off priced from £18 Adults, £12 Seniors/18-21 year-olds and £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
