Henley set to miss rest of Rovers' season

ADAM Henley is expected to miss the rest of Blackburn Rovers' season after suffering a hamstring injury at Millwall on Sunday.

Rovers' right back has missed a lot of the campaign with a similar problem and is now unlikely to return before the summer after his set back at the Den.

Rovers are also expected to be without reserve right back Bradley Orr for tomorrow's FA Cup quarter final replay against Millwall at Ewood, after he injured a rib injury.

David Bentley is also a doubt for the club with a knee injury but Martin Olsson could return after resuming training today.

Typical. So because of Millwall's failures to even attempt to win the ball and go direct for the player we now face them again at a disadvantage.

i thought they were a bit on the rough side, but it was an all championship FA cup tie, so you have to expect it to a certain extent. dann, bentley and orr could say they got a bit of unnecessary stick, but henley's injury was purely sporting. if dunn comes back in, i think it should be lowe to right back, as i think he's struggled in the middle. that would allow dunn to come in in the middle, but the chances of him lasting the whole game could be slim.

Pushed back too early without match fitness preparation, just like most of the others. This policy will cost us in the long run.

I don't really think Appleton has much choice really, he has inherited a group of mismatched players, most of who appear to have been selected by God knows who by chucking darts at photographs from 25 yards while wearing a blindfold.

That or either praying to a cow for guidance.

The majority of the squad either are or want to be;

- Somewhere else but won't take a drop in salary to leave (Robinson, Givet etc)
- Have spent most of the season bench-warming or wearing a trench in the side of the pitch.
- Have long term injuries.
- Are simply not fit enough to last 90 minutes, or dare I say 120 mins.

I honestly don't think he has 11 fit men to play tomorrow.

Millwall have been dirty both times we played them. I hope the ref tommorrow will have the balls to issue some yellow cards in the first 30 mins.

I hope not!!! Orr is absolute rubbish, no pace and no effort and the last home game said all we need to know about Orr. Lowe would be much better at right back in place of Henley

MA.... the problem with....!!

A study of Neanderthal skulls suggests that they went extinct because they had larger eyes than our species.

As a result, more of their brain was devoted to seeing in the long, dark nights in Europe, at the expense of high-level processing.
