Swine flu hits Blackburn

26 October 2009 09:40
Blackburn have confirmed two cases of swine flu at the club amid reports Tuesday's Carling Cup tie against Peterborough could be postponed.

Rovers were without Chris Samba and David Dunn for the 5-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, due to what manager Sam Allardyce has described as a virus.

However it has not been confirmed if they are the two who have been diagnosed with swine flu.

A Blackburn spokesman said: "A couple of cases of swine flu have been confirmed and other members of the squad and staff have complained of virus-like symptoms."
