Dann blow for under-fire Kean

Published Add your comment

Blackburn defender Scott Dann has been ruled out for six weeks with a groin injury, the club have confirmed.

The former Birmingham centre-half scored Rovers' goal in Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to West Brom and completed the full 90 minutes but Steve Kean confirmed on Monday he is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The news comes as a further blow to Kean, who is under mounting pressure with his side second-bottom of the league and facing a clash with local rivals Bolton, the only side below them, on Tuesday night.
