Mowbray confirms Reed blow

17th April 2019, 20:01 by Tom Hill

Blackburn Rovers playmaker Harrison Reed will return to parent club Southampton after picking up an ankle injury at Ewood Park.

Reed has made 33 appearances during his loan spell in the Championship but he suffered an injury in training and missed the game against Nottingham Forest last weekend as a result.

The 24-year-old has undergone a scan in Lancashire and is now sidelined ahead of their final four games.

Boss Tony Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph: "Reedy is going to be missing. He's going back to Southampton at the end of this week for them to assess what they want to do with him.

"I don't know the exact name of the problem, it's at the top of his ankle. It was very innocuous in training. He hit a 30 or 40-yard diagonal pass and his standing leg had a bit of a click in it and he jumped up in the air. It was nothing, no tackle or twist.

"It was pretty concerning that he had damaged something just by kicking the ball. He's had a scan. The medical department don't think it's too bad but they think it's going to be a couple of weeks.

"Might he get the last game of the season? Maybe. He will go back to Southampton for them to assess it and then decide whether he's coming back or start the rehabilitation programme there."
