Dunn set to miss out for Blackburn

Sam Allardyce is unlikely to risk David Dunn for Blackburn’s Barclays Premier League match at Hull tomorrow as the midfielder continues his recovery from a calf problem.

Dunn sustained the injury two weeks ago against Stoke and missed the Carling Cup victory over Chelsea and the goalless draw with Liverpool, but it is hoped he will be fit again for the match at Birmingham on Tuesday.

Otherwise, Allardyce has a full squad to choose from for the trip to the KC Stadium.

Team (from): Robinson, Olsson, Chimbonda, Givet, Salgado, Samba, Nelsen, Diouf, Pedersen, Andrews, Grella, Jacobsen, Nzonzi, Emerton, Hoilett, Kalinic, McCarthy, Roberts, Brown, Di Santo.
