Blackburn may be clear of swine flu virus

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce believes the club may be over the worst of the swine flu virus which affected him and a number of players. Martin Olsson and Jason Roberts both sat out the 2-0 defeat against Manchester United after going down with the virus.

Allardyce said: "It may come and go for a while but the doctor tells me the strain is at its weakest now rather than getting stronger as the winter comes in.

"So hopefully we will not catch it again and be okay later on in the season."
