BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer is hopeful Corry Evans will be fit to start Saturday’s visit of Ipswich Town to Ewood Park after the midfielder came off with a dead leg in last night’s 3-3 home draw with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Bowyer, whose squad has been riddled by injuries all season, said: “It’s a game of football for Blackburn Rovers so someone has to go off injured.

“Hopefully it’s not too serious and he can come into contention for Saturday because I thought he was terrific again tonight – him and Lee Williamson.”


Four first-team players – Jake Kean, Markus Olsson, Bryan Dabo and Josh King – have all been named in Rovers’ starting line-up for this afternoon’s Lancashire FA Senior Cup quarter-final with Bury at Brockhall.

Kick-off is 1pm and supporters are welcome.
