Wantaway Blackburn central defender Christopher Samba is to go into hospital for tests after falling ill ahead of the club's superb win over Fulham.

Rovers manager Steve Kean confirmed on Saturday, after a 3-1 victory at home to the Cottagers achieved with only 10 men after Ayegbeni Yakubu's 23rd-minute dismissal, that Samba then claimed to be sick on Friday morning.
