Bobby Zamora out for 5months, missing Johnston for nearly a year. Injuries are never fun! I have only ever been injured once during my life and it just so happens to be right now. I’ve only missed one game and I’m painfully bored due to a slight tear in my hamstring. As I said, injuries are never fun!
However, although we have lost our biggest star, we can still look ahead with interest. It would be quite unfair to say that all hope is lost becuase we are missing our big target man. Football is not a 1 man team! Hughes is a good manager and will no doubt be able to work around Zamoras absence. We have other attacking players in Dembele, Dempsey and Gera. I for one am really looking forward to the Blackburn game. I think that if we carry on the momentum from last weeks success. I in today would be a brilliant result. However, we also must approach this game with caution. It will be tough one as Ewood Park is a hard place to go to. I’d like to think that Hughes will focus on attack rather than defending and a bit of creativity from Dembele and Dempsey might just do the trick to silence the home crowd. A win will be tough, but definatly not impossible!
