Roverswill welcome back a number of senior faces for the pre-season friendly at Mansfield Town – including a first official run-out for new signings Bradley Johnson and Stewart Downing.

International trio Jayson Leutwiler, Ryan Nyambe, Charlie Mulgrew and Corry Evans were all missing from the side which beat Barrow but are expected to feature against the Stags.

All five featured in the behind closed doors win over Rochdale on Saturday as goals from Darragh Lenihan, Danny Graham, Sam Hart and a Ben Brereton double handed Rovers a 5-1 win.

However, the game will come too soon for Ryan Nyambe who only returned to training on Monday after his Africa Cup of Nations commitments with Namibia.

Leutwiler was late back to pre-season training after being part of Canada’s Gold Cup campaign.

The 30-year-old didn’t feature for his country during the tournament though and is expected to play at least 45 minutes at the One Call Stadium.

Andrew Fisher was the only player to fulfil the full 90 minutes at Barrow and could share the gloves with Leutwiler tonight as Rovers’ search for a new goalkeeper goes on.

They are short of options after the departure of David Raya, who joined Brentford earlier this month, and are exploring a number of options, including Derby 'keeper Scott Carson.

Moves for an overseas stopper, Premier League loanee, and young up-and-coming stopper haven't been ruled out though as the club could well move for two new 'keepers before the window closes on August 8.

Captain Mulgrew and midfielder Evans featured for Scotland and Northern Ireland respectively during the close season.

The game will come too soon for Sam Gallagher, signed from Southampton last Friday, but Downing and Johnson are set to feature for the first time after their free transfer moves from Middlesbrough and Derby County respectively.

However, Derrick Williams, Amari'i Bell, Harry Chapman and Dominic Samuel remain fitness doubts and are all expected to miss the second official friendly.

Charlie Adam, who starred in the win over Barrow and scored an Under-23s friendly at Leeds last week, remains training at the club, but is unlikely to play tomorrow night.

Jacob Butterfield is still training at Brockhall but won't play at Mansfield, though did play at Leeds alongside Adam.

Hosts Mansfield have won each of their opening two pre-season matches and the visit of Rovers is the start of three consecutive home matches against Championship.

They face Hull City on Saturday and then Nottingham Forest on Wednesday as John Dempster’s side look to go one better than last season and win promotion to the third tier.

There will be a familiar face in the opposition with 21-year-old midfielder Willem Tomlinson having moved to Mansfield in February after his departure from Rovers.

Tomlinson has played 13 times for Mansfield, three more than during his time at Rovers after graduating through the Academy.
