Rovers ace Jas out for three weeks

06 April 2009 06:00
Blackburn striker Jason Roberts will be out for three weeks after suffering a stress fracture of his foot during Saturday's win over Tottenham. The 31-year-old Grenada international came off at half-time after sustaining the injury in the 2-1 victory at Ewood Park. An MRI scan has revealed the extent of the problem but it will not require surgery and the club are hopeful he will be back in action before the end of the month. The striker has scored five goals in 13 Premier League matches since manager Sam Allardyce took over in mid-December.
