BLACKBURN Rovers are sweating on the fitness of captain Grant Hanley ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Huddersfield Town.
The skipper came off in Tuesday’s 1-0 home loss to Bournemouth after feeling his hamstring – leaving Gary Bowyer with just one fully fit centre-back in on-loan Manchester United youngster Michael Keane.
Hanley, who is only just back from the calf strain that forced him to miss the 4-0 defeat at Bolton Wanderers, is undergoing treatment at Brockhall.
But Rovers boss Bowyer is hopeful the injury will not prove serious given Hanley flagged it up early.
Bowyer said: “To be fair to him he shouted it early doors so we’re hoping it’s not as bad as what people first think when he limps off with a hamstring.
“We’ve not had much luck with injuries but that’s something we’re not going to go on about, we’ve just got to deal with it and get ready for a difficult away game at Huddersfield.”
Rovers should know more today whether Hanley or fellow centre-back Matt Kilgallon, who has missed the last two matches after straining his groin in the defeat to Bolton, will have a chance of facing Huddersfield.
