Republic of Ireland international Best, who is yet to make his competitive Rovers debut since joining for £3million from Newcastle last summer, damaged his cruciate knee ligaments in a friendly against AEK Athens.

Midfielder Dickson Etuhu and full-back Adam Henley made their own returns from respective knee and hamstring problems as January signing Anton Forrester bagged both Blackburn goals.
