A few players have been nursing bumps and bruises for Blackburn this week, following victory over Aston Villa last Saturday, but Tony Mowbray doesn’t anticipate anyone missing the season finale at Brentford.

Mowbray told the Official Website: ‘There’ve been one or two who haven’t trained this week who’ve got a few niggles and strains.’

In an ideal world the Blackburn boss wouldn’t have had any setbacks no matter how minor, yet with Mowbray quite literally having one game to save Rovers from relegation unless it’s physically impossible for the (slightly) injured player to feature they’ll turn out at Griffin Park.

He said: ‘So it hasn’t been an entirely smooth week for us but with one game to go as long as their knocks and niggles aren’t going to cause a serious problem then I’m sure we are going to pick from the players that were available last week.’

Mowbray finished by stressing he’ll be willing to take a calculated risk unless he’s informed selection could course further problems going forward and potential long-term damage.

‘Unless there’s an injury that the medical department feel would significantly worsen through playing then I think we get on with it.’

If it wasn’t a need’s must situation for Blackburn on Sunday no risks would be taken with any player, but as it’s basically a make or break game at Griffin Park the boss would be forgiven for taken a chance. Mowbray’s got to hasn’t he?
