Football - Berg boosted by midfield options

Blackburn boss Henning Berg will enjoy bolstered options in midfield when npower Championship leaders Cardiff visit Ewood Park.


Club stalwart David Dunn returned to the match-day squad for Sunday's 1-1 draw with Burnley following a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a calf injury.

Dickson Etuhu will provide further options for Berg in the centre of the park having overcome the effects of illness.

Veteran Portugal striker Nuno Gomes remains absent with a hamstring problem, although countryman Fabio Nunes is back in training following a similar complaint and could come into contention.

Also pressing his case for a place on the wing is on-loan Manchester United youngster Josh King, who impressed after replacing Morten Gamst Pedersen early in the second half at Turf Moor.

In seven matches under Berg, Rovers have only tasted victory on one occasion and head into the match 12 points behind Cardiff.
