    Blackburn midfielder Corry Evans suffered a fractured skull and shattered eye socket after he was caught by a high boot in the Championship draw against Preston.

    Saturday's game was halted for several minutes following the collision with Preston captain Tom Clarke.

    The Northern Ireland international, 29, faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

    "As a club we will support him through this next period," Rovers boss Tony Mowbray told BBC Radio Lancashire.

    "He'll be having his operation soon. I don't think it's right to put a timescale on it. He's going to have a plate in his forehead as his eye socket has been fractured and it's something we need to assess through time."

    Looks a horrendous injury. Good luck to the lad in his recovery.

    One of the best games at the KC. City were so good, so dominant. Should've won by way more.

    Even Colin was in awe.

    Always liked him, tidy little workhorse if not spectacular. Never thought he should have been sold. One of those players who could plug a hole almost anywhere on the pitch.
