Adam Henley will miss the match at Cardiff after picking up a hamstring strain in the defeat at Wigan on Saturday. That means he’ll join some Rovers teammates on the sidelines.

Owen Coyle expected him to sit out up to a month, telling

‘Adam Henley was injured at the weekend and will miss out for a period of three to four weeks.’

The Welsh defender ‘tweaked’ his hamstring in the three-nil defeat at the DW Stadium but at this point Coyle added he doesn’t see it as being as bad as Elliott Bennett’s hamstring injury, which is likely to see him miss the majority of next month too.

‘He’s tweaked his hamstring. I don’t think it’s as severe as Elliott Bennett’s, but it is still enough for the boy to be in discomfort. He’ll work with Dave Fevre and we’ll see how long he will be.’

Bennett (as said) was already out with Corry Evans’ groin injury continuing to keep the Northern Ireland international on the sidelines too.

On a more positive not Elliott Ward has returned to training after picking up his ankle injury in the Norwich defeat on opening day, Coyle concluded.

‘Elliott Ward has done some training with the group and we’ll see if there’s any reaction to that. Whilst Corry Evans has done some stuff with the medical side. Hopefully in the coming days he will step that up.’

Do you think we’ll miss Henley during his spell on the sidelines?
