Sam Gallagher missed Rovers’ win over Hull City with a groin injury after limping out of training on Monday. 

Manager Tony Mowbray believes the 24-year-old will miss the weekend trip to Charlton Athletic but should be available for the visit to Brentford on February 22.

The same is expected of Joe Rothwell who hasn’t featured since limping out of the win over QPR last month with a hamstring problem, but would be ahead of schedule for the attacking midfielder who was expected to miss the whole of February's matches.

Joe Rankin-Costello suffered a similar injury in the defeat to Fulham and underwent a scan on Monday which revealed a grade one hamstring injury, but his absence isn’t expected to be long-term.

“I don’t think he’ll make this weekend,” Mowbray said of Rothwell.

“I would hope he’ll be on the grass next Monday and then see how he goes.

“Gallagher came off after training (on Monday), he started the session but then came off, he’s got a groin issue.

“I don’t think it’s a bad one, but he’ll probably miss the weekend.

“That’s a blow. He’s a huge physical presence and we had to find a way to win and thankfully we did without Gallagher, without Dack, without Rothwell, without Holtby, without Evans, all players that could potentially have been in the starting line-up.

“Credit to the rest of the group, the whole team, not just the 11 but everyone for finding a way to win.”

On Rankin-Costello, the manager added: “He’s got a grade one hamstring injury. He will be another one that will miss the weekend I think but be back for the following weekend.

“It’s not a bad one, just a nick on his hamstring on a young player who’s just probably pushed himself too hard.”

Meanwhile, Lewis Holtby underwent surgery on his lateral knee ligament injury sustained in the 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough on February 1 on Tuesday. He is expected to miss the rest of the season.
