Blackburn Rovers have confirmed that playmaker David Dunn will miss this weekend's clash with Fulham.
The former Birmingham midfielder suffered a hip muscle tear that ruled him out of their trip to Aston Villa.
The 31-year-old missed Rovers' 4-1 defeat to Villa on Saturday and will also be unavailable against The Cottagers.
The club do not believe the injury is a long-term problem and hope with a few days' rest that he will be on the road to recovery.
"David has a small tear and it will take a few days for it to settle down, ruling him out of this week's action," a spokesman confirmed on the club's official website.
