Blackburn's Mokoena backed to cover Savage absence

Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes is confident they can cover for the absence of knee injury victim Robbie Savage.

He said: "We've got ready-made replacements - Aaron Mokoena, who in fairness could count himself a little unlucky to find himself out of the side when he did.

"Aaron, we know, will never let us down. We can compensate more easily now than possibly we could in the past."
