Starlet Stones a doubt for Birmingham

Thursday 20th September 2012
Dickson Etuhu is lucky to escape with a booking after this challenge on John Stones.

Keith Hill is frustrated that Blackburn midfielder Dickson Etuhu did not get sent off for the tackle which injured Barnsley’s star youngster John Stones on Tuesday night.


Etuhu was booked for the challenge while Stones limped off with a foot injury and is likely to miss tomorrow’s game at Birmingham.


Hill said: “It amazes me that we are getting punished for challenges on our players. “Matty Done got injured by a terrible challenge against Middlesbrough and was out for five weeks. Bobby Hassell got sent off for a similar challenge to the one we saw at Blackburn.


“I love Dickson Etuhu but I think he should have been more harshly punished than he was.


“We looked much less solid after Stonesy came off. Their second goal came from their left hand side, our right hand side.”
