Corry out of Toon test

The boss has a decision to make in the centre of midfield later tonight, with Evans set to miss cup clash

15 January 2019

Tony Mowbray has revealed that three of his regulars are doubts for tonight's Emirates FA Cup clash against Newcastle United at Ewood Park.

Charlie Mulgrew and Derrick Williams both missed the weekend trip to Millwall through injury, whilst Corry Evans limped off in the capital.

And the boss explains whether one, two, or all three will be available for selection for tonight's big cup clash against the Toon.

“Charlie has been back out on the grass yesterday. Him and Derrick Williams have been kicking the ball around," the boss told iFollow Rovers in the build up to the game.

“We’ll assess where we think they are. They both weren’t far away from playing at the weekend. 
 
“They weren’t quite ready, so we rested them. We’ll see what the physio says.
 
“Corry didn’t train on Monday. He doesn’t have an injury that will keep him out for long, but it’s a position that we can change with Richie [Smallwood] being back available.
 
“If anything, Corry might be kept out of tonight’s game, but I expect he’ll be fine to play against Ipswich on Saturday."
