Blackburn star out injured

Published Add your comment

Blackburn midfielder Vince Grella is likely to miss Tuesday's Barclays Premier League clash at Birmingham.

The Australian was substituted before half-time in Saturday's goalless draw at Hull with a groin strain. Manager Sam Allardyce took the player off as a precaution and admits he is unlikely to risk him at St Andrew's.

Allardyce said: "If you leave him on it extends the injury even more or he could tear it rather than feel it tight. We can probably rule him out for Birmingham but I don't think any longer than that."
