The news on Clint Dempsey doesn’t sound too clever. Roy Hodgson told the Beeb:

The initial prognosis for Clint is not good. It looks like cruciate knee ligament damage and if it is it will keep him out for a while.

The Fulham manager also summed up the Ewood Park match as a ‘strange game’.

We felt aggrieved when they went ahead as I thought we were playing well. The second was a bad goal to concede and that changed the complexion of the game.
