Tony Mowbray says he will make a late call on whether Adam Armstrong returns to the side against Bristol City.

Armstrong trained with the squad for the first time in two weeks today, having sat out the last three matches with a hamstring concern.

Mowbray says the 20-goal top scorer feels ready to start, but the medical department still have concerns about the 24-year-old being thrust back into action.

“Armstrong got on the grass today with his boots on,” Mowbray said.

“Adam is ready to go in his mind, but the physio department aren’t. I had a long chat, a sit down with Adam after training, and I’ll make that decision.

“Do you risk Adam Armstrong or do you give him that extra time during the international break where you know 100 per cent he’ll be ready to start against Wycombe? I’ll make that call.”

Joe Rankin-Costello, who started against Millwall and Swansea, was left out of the matchday squad against Brentford, a third game in a week, over concerns about over-exerting him following three months out. However, he is fit and available to return to tomorrow night.

Lewis Holtby has now got a week of training under his belt since spending a month on the sidelines with a knee injury. He had been in contention to return to the squad against Brentford, but wasn’t involved, but could return tomorrow night.

“He’s more ready than Adam, he’s trained for 10 days or so now,” Mowbray said of Holtby.

“He’s been champing at the bit. He’s more ready now and there’s a chance he’ll be involved.”

Bradley Dack has now joined Rovers’ long-term absentees, with scans confirming the 27-year-old sustained a second anterior cruciate knee ligament injury in the defeat to Brentford on Friday.

Travis lasted just seven minutes in that game, replacing Tom Trybull before sustaining a blow to his hip in his first challenge. He couldn’t shake off that knock, with Bradley Johnson on in his place, and Mowbray has revealed he won’t be available to face Bristol City tomorrow night.

“I think Lewis’ (injury) is just a bang, a knock, and I talk about a game every three days and it’s been really tough, but then Lewis has missed most of them, he came on and then took a bang in his first challenge,” the manager said.

“It’s a sore one and if anybody can shake off a knock it’s Lewis Travis, yet he’s hobbling around a little bit, he couldn’t break out of a jog, it’s a bit restrictive.

“He’s going to be unavailable, I don’t know whether that’s at the weekend as well, we’ll wait and see how he is over the next few days, but he isn’t going to be available for tomorrow.”
