Jacobsen sidelined for Cottage trip

BY foxsports • January 15, 2010

The defender suffered a thigh problem in last night's Carling Cup semi final first leg defeat to Aston Villa and looks set to miss out on Sunday's clash at Ewood Park. Vince Grella (thigh) and Jason Roberts (knee) are also still sidelined, while El-Hadji Diouf is suspended - but Allardyce is hopeful that Gael Givet will have recovered from a head injury in time for the visit of Roy Hodgson's side. Rovers (from): Robinson, Olsson, Chimbonda, Nelsen, Samba, Salgado, Pedersen, Givet, Nzonzi, Hoilett, Andrews, Emerton, Dunn, Di Santo, McCarthy, Kalinic, Jones, Brown, Reid.
