Blackburn midfielder David Dunn admits he is restricted in the number of games he can play in a season as he has to manage his fitness.

Dunn, 30, scored his first goal of the campaign in only his fifth start, in the victory against Wolves after groin and hamstring injuries hampered his progress. However he did not see the match out and was replaced by Mame Biram Diouf in the 52nd minute.

"It was a little bit of a precaution," he told www.rovers. co.uk. "We were 2-0, job done, so there was no point in risking things. I felt my leg the last couple of days, there was a little bit of pain on the left side. Unfortunately I am one of those players who is going to pick up little niggles."

He added: "If I can play 20-25 games a season - of course I would like play 38 Premier League games - hopefully I can do something different in them."

Dunn, who scored 10 goals last season, added: "Hopefully there are a few more to come. I would like to get to that target again."
