Danny Graham may be forced to miss bottom side Blackburn’s clash with fellow strugglers Rotherham as he struggles with an ankle injury.

Tommy Hoban, Corry Evans and Marvin Emnes are also doubtful, while Adam Henley, Elliott Ward, Charlie Mulgrew and Anthony Stokes are all ruled out.

Darnell Fisher serves a one-match ban after being sent off in Rotherham’s draw with Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

Lee Frecklington could play a bigger part and Dexter Blackstock may feature.
