Jerome out of Blackburn Cup tie

Last updated : 18 January 2005 By Michael Morris
A back injury picked up at Leeds on Saturday has ruled Camerone Jerome out of tomorrow nights FA Cup tie at Ewood Park. The young striker was replaced in the first half at Elland Rd by Alan Lee and it's Lee who will start up front with Peter Thorne at Blackburn.

Lee scored City's goal in the 3rd round tie at Ninian Park when he replaced former Blackburn striker Thorne in the starting line up.

That looks likely to be the only change to the team who drew in Yorkshire in Saturday.
