The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

TOMMY Spurr looks to have es­caped se­ri­ous in­jury, de­spite be­ing knocked un­con­scious at Lof­tus Road on Wed­nes­day night.

Just 70 sec­onds into Black­burn Rovers’ 2-2 draw with QPR, the left-back suf­fered a clash of heads and was stretchered off af­ter a sixminute stop­page.

How­ever, Spurr soon re­gained con­scious­ness and walked out of the ground with his team later that night.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer said:“He got a hell of a whack to the cheek bone. The medics will take care of him, but he’s back on his feet, which is a re­lief.

“He’s got a nice lump on the side of his cheek so we’ll see what hap­pens.”
