Football - Problems persist for Rovers

Blackburn's injury list shows no sign of abating in time for their home clash with Barnsley.

PA Sport Report

Rovers have endured a difficult start to the season, following up a draw to Derby with three successive defeats and they are without seven members of their first-team squad against the Tykes.

Forward Ruben Rochina (shoulder) is months away from a return while former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson (back) and midfielder Dickson Etuhu (knee) are still some way off coming back into the reckoning.

They are, however, making good progress, as is striker DJ Campbell (ankle) and defender Adam Henley (hamstring). Midfielder Lee Williamson (back) could be back by the end of the month while summer signing Matt Killgallon (groin) awaits his first appearance.
