Grella emerges as early derby doubt

12 October 2009 08:49
The 30-year-old lasted just 20 minutes in the friendly match against the Netherlands, which ended in a 0-0 draw in Sydney, and the extent of the injury is not yet known.

Grella has definitely been ruled out of the Asian Cup qualifier against Oman in Melbourne on Wednesday, and could return to Ewood Park for treatment.

Rovers have a crucial game against arch rivals Burnley in the Premier League coming up, and Sam Allardyce will be hoping he can recover in time.

The Ewood Park outfit were humbled 6-2 by Arsenal last time out and Allardyce will want all hands on deck against the Clarets.
