Matthew Etherington is expected to be out for about 10 days after turning his ankle in training.
The speedy winger was a surprise omission from Sunday's 16 at Ewood Park but Glenn Hoddle later revealed that he had picked up an injury on Thursday.
Glenn reported: "Matty turned his ankle over on Thursday and just felt it wasn't good enough. He'll be out for 10 days or so, so that's a bit of a blow for us."
However, Matt's injury offered Milenko Acimovic a chance to shine on the left flank and the Slovenian star impressed - Teddy Sheringham said it was his best game for the club so far.
Skipper Teddy said: "I thought Milo was outstanding, his best game yet. It's a difficult place to come and play as a left winger.
"He worked hard and it wasn't just about his natural ability on the ball, that's what it takes to win away from home."
Glenn added: "Milo came in and did well for us down that left-hand side and proved it's another position he can play for us."
