Blackburn Rovers wide man out for two months

JOSH King is facing two months on the sidelines after suffering a recurrence of a hamstring injury at Derby County last weekend.

King lasted only a few minutes before being forced to limp off in Rovers’ 3-0 win in the FA Cup fourth round.

Paul Robinson and Adam Henley remain on the sidelines for tomorrow's home game against Bristol City, while Dickson Etuhu is around 10 days away from a return from injury.

Rovers were unable to add to their squad yesterday as they missed the deadline to complete deals for DJ Campbell and Jerome Thomas, although Michael Appleton hopes he can still bring the duo in when the loan window reopens next week.

“Obviously it’s frustrating but it was just one of those things,” the Rovers boss said this afternoon.

“We ran out of time, you see it happen at clubs in other transfer windows but I’m confident that we’ll get back to those deals.”

Need a Job with very little Knowledge get down to Ewood.

Not first time the paperwork problems hit the club on deadline day. Shefki Kuqi's registration was faxed to a chip shop instead of the league in 2006.

Can't blame that on Singh, Shaw, Agnew etc.


Answers needed as to what went wrong last night. Somebody needs FIRING for this.

Sorry, 'just one of those things' isn't good enough.

Was it an elementary ****-up - or was there a more sinister reason? The least we deserve is a full explanation.

Get to the bottom of this shambles, Andy. Ask all the pertinent questions - and if they come up with evasive answers or won't give you any answer at all, tell us. And if you can't find out the straight forward way find out another. Enough people must know what went on.

There are rumours of a big bust up between the warring factions in the club. If that is true, someone must know something.

"We just ran out of time" .....plenty of time to sort it the other way though eh!!

Yet again we are a laughing stock.

It can only be to do with money. Otherwise it would have been sorted, you do not just run out of time. Was someone not watching the clock and raising this as an issue....If both parties wanted it done it would have been done please Michael do not fall into the trap that everyone else at the club has done across the last two years of treating us fans with contempt. The two signings would have given the whole club such a lift and we would have gone into tomorrows game with anticipation.....now we just have the reality we are a second rate club with a second rate backroom...where was ur right hand man you just have hired to sort transfers or does he start on Monday!!!!

Anyway we don't necessarily need another No 10 (now where have I heard that recently)...we needed a bloody centre half and a midfielder.

I don't think I have been as angry as this across the last two years...we simply ran out of time....bah humbug your nose is growing!!!

The only ****-up is Appleton stupidly raising expectations by saying that 3 or 4 new players would be coming in and then we end up with an 18-year old academy lad.

And is it worth having a punt on QPR going bust in 12-24 months? I'd rather we spent what we do have rather than what we don't. And at the moment we've got nowt.

Running out of time is no excuse. On the positive side, we have been on an improved run of results and the lads bounced back well against Derby after the disappointment against Brighton.

If the results can continue to improve over the next few games I'm sure most will try to forget the disaster of last night. Especially if we can lure them in on loan.

I didn't rate Rochina but you have to be 100% sure he can be replaced if you're going to let a key member of the squad go. I do feel for Appleton at the moment. Try not to let the good run fade as we do not have the time to waste at this stage of the season.

Heads won't roll. They are doing exactly as they are told, as Kean did.

In any normal club there would have been a statement in the paper today explaining to their fans what went wrong, but no we're not a normal club.
Ive never seen any "normal club" issue a statement explaining to fans what went wrong get over it these things happen to clubs every window

Everyone is assuming that it wasour fault for running out of time but we dont know this, For all we know both QPR and WBA might of been holding it up.

Im sure both players will be on board come thursday
We had a month to sign new players to strengthen the squad and ended up signing no-one and weakening it.

Yes, I repeat a month. No excuses.

A Rover 45 years and over says...

Don't think Appy has been treated properly with not enough time being devoted to finding the players he wanted to give him extra cover throughout the squad. Most of the time and priority seems to have been spent trying to ship players out first before getting players in and it's been made worse by trying to do it all in the last two days of the window.

I am not one to quickly dish out criticism but this is really poor reporting I would use the word journalism but this is in no way journalism, I could have wrote this article having asking 'excuse me BRFC have we any injuries ahead of tomorrow's game'. Why not ask what happened last night ...was it terms and conditions, was it bad management or what was it. For goodness sake Mr. Cryer grow some balls and get stuck in, ask those difficult questions ......please

stop your un-informed moaning....the January window is indeed 31 days in length but MA only joined the club with 14 days of the window left. In that short period of time he had to assess the current squad sort through all the contracts and decide who he wanted out and who he wanted to come in. Personally I think he did a very good job of it and the fact that someone at the club screwed-up the admin side of it no way reflects on Appleton. Nothing for the manager to say at the press conference except the fact that it is almost certain that both players will sign on loan during the ext week. Not exactly a tragedy is it compared to some things we have seen over the last two years. And its not a relegation scrap for the Rovers, we are still in with a sound chance of making the play-offs the way the team, are playing and with these two new additions then that makes the chance all the more real. Saturday will be the third time we beat Bristol City this season - shame we cant play em every week!

Something is not right in the Palace of Ewood. To lose one player on deadline day is unfortunate to lose two is downright careless.
Sorry Mr French I am an optimist and think Appy is a good un and will do a good job but he must be supported and this is a classic cop out by someone at the Palace of Ewood.
Somkeone appears to have dug their eels in here and we should know who. I hope the LT asks some important questions re this episode as we must have unity if we are to make any progress. We got rid of some dross, this is true, but we definitely needed some additions particularly bearing the current injury problems. I am sure the players we have will under Mr. Appleton will do their best but we most certainly would have done better with a little more help and one or two players in the right positions. A win against BC will help.

I am a Rovers fan, but I live in Swindon (makavelli will say something about this!) the Swindon board have come out and clearly explained why our/star player had to be sold, just as the fans were starting to get angry - now everything is ok. They tried to sign 3 players but the FL vetoed them - again, the board have given explanations. We get nothing from venky's and their cronies, talk about night and day.... I really fear for our future.... Venkys ARE taking us in one direction and will continue to do so.

Hi Wellsy11 - I used to live at abbey meads a few years ago so know the county ground and moonrakers quite well....Paulo was so close to walking out last week and not sure he will stay even now. BTW things are not all OK yet at the County Ground I hear...with Di Canio that is. He has been 100% committed to the Robins so far but reckon its all or nothing with PC so could be a tipping point now.

only time will tell crankitup.....for me hope and great expectation are always my thoughts but I do concede some degree of reality is on yours.

I do prefer the hope scenario though.

BTW I don't think that we will be good enough for long enough to be able to win the play-offs, just that I think we have a good enough squad and manager now to be able to reach them.

Which in itself would be a great achievement from the very low point that we started out from at the beginning of the season.

Madame in Puna will be very happy at money save getting rid of Rochina and other players. Pity they couldnt offload moneybags Robinson to west ham or Madam Desai would have celebrated with a few extra cups of Darjeeling tea.
