Hoban praised by Rovers boss

On-loan Watford defender Tommie Hoban has been praised by Blackburn boss Owen Coyle as he battles through an injury problem.

Hoban has been dogged by a hip problem for over a year and suffered a blow to the area playing for Blackburn against Leeds on Tuesday night.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, 22, could now miss Rovers' crucial Championship clash against Rotherham on Saturday as they look to climb off the foot6 of the table.

"We are always hopeful because he has shown to be a very good player," said Rovers boss Coyle.

"He's done very well for us since he has come in so fingers crossed he will be available for Saturday. But we'll just have to wait and see how the next couple of days develops on that."
