Blackburn striker Benni McCarthy is doubtful for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League clash with Derby.
The South Africa international missed last week’s win at Portsmouth with a hamstring injury and, despite training this week, boss Mark Hughes admits the game may come too soon.
McCarthy is therefore likely to have to wait until next week’s final game at Birmingham to add to his 11-goal tally.
Rovers are more hopeful defender Christopher Samba, who limped out of the action at Fratton Park with a thigh problem, will recover in time.
Team (from): Friedel, Reid, Nelsen, Samba, Ooijer, Warnock, Bentley, Emerton, Vogel, Pedersen, Santa Cruz, Roberts, Dunn, Brown, Tugay, Derbyshire, McCarthy, Mokoena, Khizanishvili.
