Rovers could welcome back two attacking players from injury for this weekend’s trip to Brentford.

Joe Rankin-Costello and Sam Gallagher trained with the squad on Thursday having missed the last two matches with hamstring and groin injuries respectively.

But Mowbray hopes the pair could boost his attacking options for this weekend’s game at Griffin Park, with Rovers having been stretched in the attacking areas of late.

An injury to Joe Rothwell, who remains out with a hamstring problem, opened the door for 20-year-old Rankin-Costello to make his first senior start against Middlesbrough on February 1, but he was then forced off in the defeat to Fulham a week later.

Gallagher also missed the wins over Hull and Charlton through injury, but the 24-year-old is also set to travel with the squad, but defender Derrick Williams (calf) is set to miss out, meaning 20-year-old Hayden Carter will stay with the senior side.

“Gallagher and Rankin-Costello are going to put their boots on and see if they come through training, but no-one else,” Mowbray said.

“No Dack, Holtby, Evans, Rothwell or Williams, none of them will be training, but Gallagher and Rankin-Costello are the two that if they come through training will travel with us.

“The squad is fine, the pleasing thing is that they have stepped up when they’ve needed to when it’s looked like we’ve been down to the bare bones and scrambling around.

“We’ve found a way to get some jobs done. This weekend is a difficult job, with respect to the last few away games.

“Brentford are in touching distance of the top two, it’s a tough game for us and we felt that toughness last season, even though we were 2-0 up early on.

“In my mind we lost Dack and Graham to injury, Lenihan came off and we finished with 10 men, and ultimately we lost five goals.

“They’re a good team, they started slowly this year but you could always see and feel their threat. They have some good footballers at the top end of the pitch and play their football in a classic 4-3-3 with a quarterback sitting and feeding.

“It’s a test and one that we’re looking forward and hopefully we can ask some questions of them, as well as knowing that we’re going to have to defend well and be really concentrated.”
