Leon Best: Frustrating time at Blackburn

Best has been on the sidelines after sustaining a cruciate knee injury last summer following his £3m switch from Newcastle.

The player has undergone seven months of rehabilitation since he was injured during a pre-season friendly match against AEK Athens.

Rovers boss Michael Appleton confirmed Best will play along with Dickson Etuhu and Adam Henley, while Fabio Nunes and Josh Morris will get a run-out as well.

"We've got a reserve team game tonight which is going to be good because Leon Best will get his first game," Appleton said.

"Dickson Etuhu will get a run-out tonight, Adam Henley, Fabio Nunes and Josh Morris, so there is going to be a few faces that have been in and around the first team that are going to be playing this evening.

"So I'm looking forward to seeing how they do before I travel up to Hull."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
