Football - Rovers sweat on Cairney

Tom Cairney is a major injury doubt for Blackburn's Sky Bet Championship clash with Bolton.

PA Sport Report

The midfielder, who moved to Ewood Park on a permanent deal in January, is struggling with an ankle injury picked up in the win over Reading and although the problem is not considered serious, he faces a race against time to be fit.

Josh King (hamstring) will return to full training at the start of next week ahead of the East Lancashire derby with Burnley next Sunday while midfielder Dickson Etuhu (ankle) is also nearing a comeback.

Midfielder Corry Evans, an unused substitute at Reading, could appear for the first time since October following an ankle problem, but Ben Marshall (ankle) is out for the long-term.
