Blackburn's Savage admits fitness struggle

Blackburn's Robbie Savage has revealed he is concerned about his fitness as he is having problems with his recovery from a broken leg.

The tenacious Rovers midfielder broke his leg last January against Watford which forced him out of action for six months.

Savage has made a successful return to action this season, but the injury is still niggling him.

The former Leicester man has been forced to limp out of three games this season after taking a knock the same leg - and Savage concedes it is a worry for him.

"I had to go off last weekend because I got another whack on the shin. It's happening a lot," Savage told the Sunday Mirror.
