Football - Rovers sweating over Rhodes

Blackburn have received a huge injury scare ahead of their derby with Burnley this Saturday after Jordan Rhodes withdrew from international duty due to injury.

PA Sport Report

The striker has scored four times in his last two Rovers outings and netted in the 1-1 draw at Turf Moor last year.

However, his place in Gary Bowyer's XI this Saturday has been cast in doubt after Scotland boss Gordon Strachan confirmed he had left their set-up ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Macedonia because of a broken hand.

Rhodes sustained the injury in Friday night's loss to Belgium and Blackburn will hope he can feature against the Clarets, who have not beaten their arch rivals since 1979.
