The 20-year-old Norwegian, who missed Rovers' previous three matches, limped out of Saturday's 3-0 FA Cup fourth-round win at Derby.

"It is his hamstring again, it is the same problem," said Blackburn boss Michael Appleton. "He's done a million and one tests in terms of his strength and we thought he was right.

"He felt right, he felt great and wanted to play so it is a shame because we are going to miss his pace in this side so that is something we'll have to look at."

Former Manchester United player King initially joined Rovers on loan in November 2012 and, after scoring two goals in eight games, made the switch permanent two months later.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
