Blackburn have suffered a huge injury blow following the news striker Leon Best is set for six months on the sidelines.

The Republic of Ireland international, a £3million summer signing from Newcastle, was stretchered off before half-time during the 2-1 friendly victory over AEK Athens at Fleetwood on Sunday and scans have confirmed anterior cruciate ligament damage.

The 25-year-old had earlier put Rovers 2-0 ahead, adding to Nuno Gomes' opener with a fine individual effort.
