Josh King: Torn hamstring

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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
