EVANS TO MISS FA CUP CLASH

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Corry Evans will miss the FA Cup third round clash with Doncaster Rovers this weekend as a result of injury. Blackburn Rovers will take on League One club Doncaster Rovers at home without the services of Corry Evans as the two clubs contest for the right to be in the fourth round of the competition. Corry Evans has missed the last 12 games for Blackburn Rovers in the league due to injury. His last appearance came two months ago.


Northern Ireland national team player Corry Evans played his last game for Blackburn Rovers during a home game with London outfit Queens Park Rangers (QPR) at the start of November. He was forced off in the opening five minutes due to hamstring injury and he has not recovered from that injury till date.

He was replaced by young midfielder John Buckley after he left the English Championship game with the injury. Without Corry Evans in the team, leading scorer Adam Armstrong scored twice for Blackburn Rovers to lead the former Premier League winners to a 3-1 win over QPR at Ewood Park. Ben Bereton scored the other goal for the hosts during the game, while QPR striker Lyndon Dykes scored the lone goal for the away team.
Corry Evans was forced to miss the crucial Euro 2020 playoffs with Slovakia as a result of the hamstring problem picked up in the QPR game. Northern Ireland were unable to qualify for the European Championships without Corry Evans after they lost 2-1 to Slovakia. He has missed the last 12 games in the English Championship and the Northern Irishman will miss out on the Doncaster Rovers clash in the FA Cup as Blackburn Rovers hope to build on the win over Birmingham City in the last league game. It ended a three-game winless run in the English Championship.
