King, 20, suffered a reoccurrence of the injury after just eight minutes in last Saturday's 3-0 FA Cup win over Derby County.

The former Manchester United forward has been struggling with the problem for the last month and scans have now revealed an extended spell on the sidelines is required.

"Josh looks a bad one to be fair," Rovers boss Michael Appleton told the club's website.

"It is a grade two hamstring injury which isn't great so that could possibly be a 6-8 week job.

"Dickson Etuhu is probably about ten days away from training whilst Dunny has had a knock in training so he has missed a few days.

"Adam Henley is probably a month away because it was also a bad hamstring injury that he did."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
