Rovers will check on the fitness of Sam Gallagher before deciding on his possible involvement against Swansea City.

Gallagher came off just 15 minutes after his introduction in the weekend’s draw with Stoke City after sustaining a blow to his back in an incident that saw him end up going over the advertising boards when defending a set play.

The attacker didn’t train on Monday other than with the physios, though Mowbray hasn’t completely ruled him out of featuring against the Swans who he scored against in this fixture last season.

Rovers too are nursing several other niggling injuries, not least Joe Rothwell who limped his way through the first half at the weekend before being replaced at the break, though Mowbray expects him to be involved tomorrow night.

“Sam has a bit of bruising around his lower back, he’s a bit sore, we’ll have to wait and see,” Mowbray said.

“He didn’t train, but it’s only a knock, we’ll see how he is tomorrow and whether we can roll him out or not.

“I think it’s going to be like that all the way in.

“Training, we’re trying to cut it down as much as we can, work in the analysis room, but it’s hard to use the analysis room, we have to use the indoor gym to space everyone out.

“It’s hard to get a team meeting set-up, so those things are frustrating.

“With games coming every three days it’s difficult to get the work done and in the classroom as well, it feels as though we’re picking a team, rolling them out and ‘let’s go again’.

“Dack and Travis are coming back from long-term injuries so it’s a fine balance between keeping the team energised and the best chance of winning matches the way we like to and have been.”

Amari'i Bell also missed the weekend's game and is a doubt for tomorrow night's fixture.

Elsewhere, captain Elliott Bennett, who has been out since October with an ankle ligament injury, returned to full training today.

The versatile 31-year-old has made just one substitute appearance this season, but is on the cusp of a return to first-team action following a spell on the sidelines.

“Bennett is another few days further on, he’s on the training ground and joined in training today,” Mowbray added.

“But he’s been out 11 weeks so he won’t be ready for this game but he’s not far away from playing a game of some sort and getting involved again.

“Benno has always been around the group, he has a big impact on the dressing room, he sets the standards and his enthusiasm to get back in the team is huge.

“His enthusiastic nature on the training ground can inspire so hopefully he’ll be back in and around it pretty soon.

“It’s great to have him back on the grass training.”
