BLACKBURN Rovers will assess the extent of Grant Hanley's injury after their captain was forced to come off in the latter stages of last night's desperately disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Bournemouth with a hamstring problem.

The Scotland international, who only returned to Gary Bowyer's starting line-up for Sunday's derby loss to Burnley after recovering from a calf strain, was substituted with 15 minutes remaining.

Rovers boss Bowyer said: "We’re hoping it’s not as bad as people first think when he limps off with a hamstring."
