Blackburn have been dealt the blow, which is of course blow for the player himself as well of course, that Watford loanee Tommie Hoban will face several months on the sidelines due to injury.

Hoban was injured in training in the lead up to the match with Wolves at Ewood Park last weekend with surgery needed on his dislocated shoulder, which Owen Coyle has confirmed to has seen him return to Watford for further treatment.

‘Tommie Hoban requires surgery on his shoulder given the extent of the damage. Watford, as his parent club, wanted to look at that as well, so with that in mind Tommie will undergo surgery on Monday.’

Three-months is the ‘best case scenario’ with Coyle adding we’ll have to ‘see how that one goes.’

Coyle went on to back Hoban to come back from this injury setback as he’s ‘mentally strong’ adding he’ll be well looked after.

‘We’ll make sure he is well cared for and in a good place physically and mentally and try and build that up. He’ll still be able to do some work given that it is a shoulder injury, but what we do know is that when he is back and available we’ll have a wonderful young player to come into our team.’
