Grella, Nelsen still sidelined for Blackburn Rovers

Vince Grella and Ryan Nelsen will remain out of the Blackburn Rovers line-up for this weekend's meeting with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Australian international and New Zealand captain have both made just one appearance in the Premier League so far this season but are unavailable for the Spurs visit on Sunday says manager Steve Kean who also has some injury worries.

"Unfortunately we've lost Michel Salgado, he's feeling his hamstring again," Kean told the club's official website.

"David Dunn hasn't made it, Ryan Nelsen is getting closer but he's not fit yet and Vince Grella has a hip injury so we have four very important senior players that have not made it this week.

"They are improving but this game is going to come too soon for them."
