Andy Griffin: Unlikely to play again this season

The 34-year-old right-back complained of a sore lower back and upper thigh following Rovers' 2-0 home defeat to Carlisle last Tuesday and missed out at the weekend as Brian Flynn's side came from behind to beat Crewe 2-1 to preserve their two-point lead at the top of the League One table.

A scan has shown a small tear in his hamstring, and with just 12 days left of the regular season Griffin will struggle to play any further part.

The news is a blow for the club as the injured Paul Quinn is also unlikely to play again this term.

Griffin joined Rovers on non-contract terms in October and has made 18 appearances in all competitions for the south Yorkshire outfit.

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.
