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."

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
