BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer is hopeful goalkeeper Paul Robinson will be fit to face Derby County at Ewood Park on Saturday.

The former England number one missed last Saturday's 4-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest with a hamstring strain.

Rovers top scorer Jordan Rhodes is set to return to Bowyer's first XI after a niggling foot injury meant he started the City Ground clash from the bench.

Skipper Scott Dann is expected to be fit despite coming off against Forest while right-back Todd Kane will return to the squad after recovering from a thigh injury.

The match, however, will come too soon for Corry Evans.

The midfielder, who has been out for three months with ankle-ligament damage, will return to full training on Monday.

I cannot recall the Rovers having such a poor bunch of goalkeepers only Robinson is good enough and he still has the odd fumble.
