Lee Williamson (l): To have a scan on ankle injury

Williamson, making only his second appearance for Rovers, was stretchered off after an hour of the 2-0 defeat on Humberside.

"Obviously he'll get an X-ray and a scan," said Rovers boss Michael Appleton. "I don't think it is as bad as we first feared.

"He's come off on a stretcher, it is his ankle, but the doctor seemed to be reasonably confident that it won't be a fracture - but I think he's got a problem in between the tibia and the fibula and the ankle joint.

"We'll get it looked at and we'll see how he is."

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.
