Lewis Travis will see a specialist tomorrow though Tony Mowbray anticipates the Rovers midfielder spending ‘a few months’ on the sidelines.

Travis picked up the injury in the second half of the Carabao Cup defeat at Newcastle United, playing on until the dying seconds when he finally conceded defeat as Rovers finished the match with 10 men.

Mowbray revealed after the game the 22-year-old, a key man in the middle of his midfield, had sustained what appeared to be a lateral knee ligament injury that he also picked up in the closing stages of last campaign.

It was also an injury that sidelined Lewis Holtby for three months, and Travis could be set for a similar timeframe out injured.

Speaking at this morning's pre-match press conference, the manager said: “It looks like Travis has got quite a bad lateral knee ligament injury.

“He will see a specialist tomorrow, the anticipation is a few months out injured.

“That will be a big loss for us I think.

“That’s not confirmation, he’ll see a specialist tomorrow, but that’s what our inhouse team are saying that he’s lateral knee ligament is not a mild injury.

“It looks like Travis is a casualty.”

Elsewhere, Corry Evans is still a couple of weeks away from returning to action having suffered a bruised foot.

Mowbray says that injury is complicated by the fact it is on the same foot as the broken toe Evans sustained last season which ruled him out of the final eight matches of the 2019/20 campaign.

Sam Gallagher and Daniel Ayala will also not feature against Wycombe Wanderers.

Better news comes with Bradley Johnson who missed the Newcastle United cup defeat with an ankle problem, but will train today and put himself in contention to feature against the newly-promoted side.

“Corry has got a bruised bone on his metatarsal on the same foot he broke his toe which is probably compounding it a little bit,” the manager added.

“Corry won’t be available, Trav won’t be available, but I’m hoping Bradley Johnson trains this morning, that’s the plan, which would be a positive for us.

“There’s lots of young players, Tyler Magloire, Hayden Carter, who aren’t available.”
