Frustration for Craig

The boss believes the winger could miss the next couple of weeks after picking up an injury against Birmingham

Tony Mowbray has revealed that Craig Conway is likely to spend time on the sidelines after the Scottish winger limped off in the first half against Birmingham City.

Conway lasted just 18 minutes against the Blues before being replaced by Adam Armstrong, who ended up scoring Rovers' second goal of the afternoon.

But Mowbray's concern is with Conway, and he thinks the 33-year-old could miss a chunk of the festive season.

"Craig has got a thigh strain. He went through a tackle and tried to sprint after it and just pulled a thigh so hopefully it’s not too bad but it can happen, especially in conditions like today," the boss told iFollow Rovers after the clash against the Blues.

"It’s disappointing for Craig of course because he had got himself back in the team. It looks like he’ll probably miss the Christmas period but hopefully Elliott [Bennett] won’t be too far away.

"And we’ve got other options of course. Adam took his chance today and scored so let’s keep going.

“Adam’s been disappointed that he’s not started games in recent weeks, I’m pretty sure, but Conway did so well over the last few weeks and deserved to keep his place.
“He’s worked very hard and has been an important part of the team that got a point at Middlesbrough and beat Sheffield Wednesday."
