MATT Kilgallon has been ruled out of Blackburn Rovers’ League Cup first round tie at home to Scunthorpe United tomorrow night.

Kilgallon went off at half time in Friday’s season opener against Cardiff City because of a back spasm, and is a doubt for Saturday’s match at Blackpool after it was confirmed he would miss the Scunthorpe game.

“He’s not recovered in time and obviously that raises some doubts for him on Saturday,” Rovers boss Gary Bowyer confirmed at a press conference this afternoon.

Thats all we need!

Our paper thin squad is stretched to the limits and we're already losing key players. What chance have we got should we lose Rhodes or Cairney to injury? It simply doesnt bear thinking about.

Not feeling positive at all about tomorrows game, I think we could be opened up by a decent Scunthorpe side.

God help Bowyer if he gets it wrong again.

Here is a page I have copied and pasted form the NHS website. Please read it as I feel it would benefit you greatly.

Schizophrenia is a long-term mental health condition that causes a range of different psychological symptoms, including:

Hallucinations - hearing or seeing things that do not exist.
Delusions - unusual beliefs not based on reality which often contradict the evidence.
Muddled thoughts based on the hallucinations or delusions.
Changes in behaviour.

Doctors often describe schizophrenia as a psychotic illness. This means sometimes a person may not be able to distinguish their own thoughts and ideas from reality.

Why does schizophrenia happen?

The exact cause of schizophrenia is unknown. However, most experts believe the condition is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
It is thought certain things make you more vulnerable to developing schizophrenia, and certain situations can trigger the condition.
Read more about the causes of schizophrenia.

Who is affected?

Schizophrenia is one of the most common serious mental health conditions. About 1 in 100 people will experience schizophrenia in their lifetime, with many continuing to lead normal lives.
Schizophrenia is most often diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 35. Men and women are equally affected.
There is no single test for schizophrenia. It is most often diagnosed after an assessment by a mental health care professional, such as a psychiatrist.
It is important that schizophrenia is diagnosed as early as possible, as the chances of recovery improve the earlier it is treated.

How is schizophrenia treated?

Schizophrenia is usually treated with a combination of medication and therapy appropriate to each individual. In most cases, this will be antipsychotic medicines and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
People with schizophrenia will usually receive help from a community mental health team (CMHT), which will offer day-to-day support and treatment.
Many people recover from schizophrenia, although they may have periods when symptoms return (relapses). Support and treatment can help reduce the impact of the condition on your life.

Living with schizophrenia

If schizophrenia is well managed, it is possible to reduce the chances of severe relapses. This can include:

Recognising signs of an acute episode.
Taking medication as prescribed.
Talking to others about the condition.

There are many charities and support groups offering help and advice on living with schizophrenia. Most people find it comforting to talk to others with a similar condition.

If it means that Lowe will play at right back and not in centre mid it actually strengthens the team. Baptiste moves to centre half.

Kilgallon is well known to be injury prone so this doesn't come as too much of a surprise. On the plus side it's an added excuse to recruit more much needed defensive cover. Hopefully in Killa's absence Jack O'Connell gets an opportunity tomorrow night, heard so many great reviews without seeing him properly myself.

Secondly, how sad must you be to create an account, pose as a rovers fan and comment on every related article? I know comments like this will probably just blow over your head but if you sit down and think about what you're actually doing it should make you feel embarrassed. I've not been on here long and even I find it embarrassing that people actually have the time to do such things. Well, actually, I suppose it's different when you're on job seekers allowance.

So what if we get knocked out, not going to win it so get it over with early doors.

Know what you men Bp - but this cup does give managers opportunities to blood some of the younger players in the squad, which has to be a good thing.
Let's see if GB goes this route tomorrow night, hope so.

Yeah, and if you get through to the next round you might get a big premier league team like Burnley.

When you look at our squad and then you compare the two the fact that Kilgallon is out should not have a bearing on the outcome. We should be far too strong" no disrespect to Scunthorpe but come on !!.
