Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts will face a spell out injured, however, this isn’t as bad as first feared.

Roberts was understood to have suffered a metatarsal injury that would’ve almost certainly ended his season, however, the 31-year-old has merely suffered a stress fracture of his foot that isn’t going to required surgery. The Grenada International will still be out for three-weeks though and this is a setback for us but it could be A LOT worse.

There is better news on Morten Gamst Pedersen though as the Norwegian could be back from his calf strain (after treatment in Norway) in time to face Liverpool at Anfield this weekend?

If only we had Matty Derbyshire at the moment, how useful (valuable even) could he be proving now? As it is Derbyshire continues to bang the goals in for Olympiakos during his loan spell with the Greek side, and I’m starting to become more and more concerned that Derbs won’t be coming back to Ewood Park!!!

  • I also want to see Carlos. Problem is, I don’t remember too many youngsters in Big Sam’s Bolton. I hope he see the potential and the quality of these 2 youngsters. Unfortunately I get the feeling he’s happier signing players that are slightly over the hill and cheap, rather than not quite at the top of the hill yet. We shall see. Priority one. Stay up, no matter waht. Priority 2, worry about Derbyshire and co. in the summer.

  • if santa is bak in the next one why not give a reserve player a shot, or another youngster,i cringed at sum of the chances roberts has missed this season! even b4 hes made his run lol! aaron doran hopefully will be seen next season! roberts ur da man but wen playing i hope he thinks of a possible paycut next season if we go down! that shud make him score goals lol

  • Carlos is banging in the goals in the reserves, so why not give him a chance???, Roberts is a big blow to us, he’s never going to score loads of goals for us but its his all round play thats important, he creates space for those around him… I cant see Carlos leaving Rovers, he’s a local lad playing for the club he supports and he should get his chance next season, especailly if ( or likely when ) Santa Cruz leaves

  • Blackman is back isn’t he and we do have Julio Santa Cruz, if only we had Derbs. If either of those two youngsters got in aheas of Carlos though then I think that confirms that he’s not got a future at Rovers.

  • woteva allardyce is doing hes doing good beating tottenham who speny maybe 5 times what we did ud expect to be in the top 7 atleast! so to beat a team with such high aspirations with the team we had was amazing i jus think we need more creativity good passing with a pinch of speed! is julio any good guys neva seen him play???
