Tosin Adarabioyo has trained with the Rovers squad and will travel to Reading, despite picking up a knock in the win over Millwall.

Adarabioyo made a first appearance in five matches last weekend as part of a back three, having not featured prior to the Lions wins since his debut against Fulham on August 10.

The Manchester City loanee was replaced midway through the second half against Millwall after sustaining a knock, but the 21-year-old is in contention to keep his place during Rovers’ trip to Reading.

However, boss Tony Mowbray wants to ensure Adarabioyo is 100 per cent fit before making any call on his involvement.

He said: “He trained today, let’s wait and see.

“We have to be careful with Tosin and make sure we don’t keep getting him injured through wanting to play him.

“He took a knock and we have to make sure he’s right.

“He came through training alright, but training is training and a game is a game.

“We’ll be taking him on the bus with us.”

Ben Brereton (knee) is set for up to eight weeks out following surgery, with several other players on the comeback trail.

Jacob Davenport made a first appearance since injuring his ankle in pre-season for the Under-23s in Monday's defeat at Everton.

Dominic Samuel didn't feature at Goodison Park, after taking  a knock in the Lancashire Senior Cup win over Accrington Stanley, in which he came through 90 minutes.

But the 25-year-old is expected to feature again for the Under-23s against Tottenham on Monday.
