Blackburn midfielder David Dunn has handed his manager Mark Hughes a boost with regards his calf injury.
It had been feared the in-form schemer faced a prolonged spell on the sidelines but he could be ready to return as soon as Saturday.
Dunn missed Blackburn's last gasp victory at Newcastle at the weekend because of the problem but scans have confirmed the damage is minimal.
Rovers boss Hughes has spoken of his relief at potentially having the player available for this weekend's clash with Fulham.
"I do not think he will be out for any length of time," said Hughes.
"Hopefully he will be available this week."
