Football - Rovers wait on duo

Gary Bowyer is keeping his fingers crossed over the availability of Blackburn pair Josh King and David Dunn for the Roses clash at Leeds.

Former Manchester United winger King missed the 3-2 loss to Birmingham because of a back strain but is expected to train on Tuesday while long-serving midfielder Dunn (hamstring) has a slight strain and could return.

Dunn's comeback in the middle of midfield would be particularly welcome for a Rovers side who will be without Jason Lowe after he picked up a fifth caution of the season right before the Football League's amnesty.

Full-back Todd Kane (thigh) will miss out while Corry Evans (ankle) is still considered a couple of weeks away from returning, meaning he will remain absent along with Paul Robinson (back) and Dickson Etuhu (ankle).
