JOSH King remains sidelined with a hamstring injury for Blackburn Rovers' Championship clash with Brighton & Hove Albion tomorrow night.

The former Manchester United man has missed the last two games with the injury and Rovers boss Michael Appleton confirmed he would not be fit for the visit of Gus Poyet's men.

But the Rovers chief is hopeful of having the wideman in contention for the FA Cup fourth round tie with Derby County on Saturday.
