Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that David Dunn will miss the remaining four games of the season after an operation on his Achilles.
It means the midfielder, who stepped off the substitutes' bench in the victory against Wigan on Sunday, will sit out the Barclays Premier League match at Manchester City on Saturday.
Allardyce said: "David has not been able to overcome the pain he has suffered in recent weeks, so we have had to make the big decision to let him have an operation."
