Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes admits midfielder Robbie Savage is struggling with his recovery from a leg break.

Savage has had to limp out of three games after taking a bang on the spot where his right leg was snapped in a tackle last season.

Savage's incredible run of bad luck is driving the player crazy and Hughes said: "Robbie can run it off, but it takes 10 to 15 minutes, so when it happens it makes sense to take him off."
