Blackburn man ‘up on his feet’ after being carried off at QPR

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer said defender Tommy Spurr was “up on his feet” soon after being stretchered off early on in a 2-2 draw against QPR at Loftus Road.

The defender was treated on the field for six minutes after being poleaxed in an unfortunate collision, although Bowyer delivered promising news afterwards.

“He is up on his feet. He had a whack on his cheekbone – we will have to monitor that over the next couple of days but he looks to have improved.

“I think he might have been (knocked out) but I have not got the full data from the medics.”

Rovers led twice through goals from Shane Duffy and Jordan Rhodes. Charlie Austin and then Nedum Onuoha levelled for Rangers.
