Rovers expect Darragh Lenihan and Ryan Nyambe to be fit for this weekend’s trip to Cardiff City.

Lenihan’s withdrawal at half time of the FA Cup defeat at Wigan and Nyambe’s omission from the squad were both as a precaution.

The Rovers captain sustained a sore knee while Nyambe was troubled by his hamstring in training on the eve of the match.

That is positive news amid concerns over Sam Gallagher and Harry Pickering being ruled out for up to six weeks with a hamstring strain.

Gallagher looked to have sustained a similar injury as he limped off half an hour into his first start since October 30.

However, Mowbray says Gallagher will go for a scan on his foot, with that having been the source of his discomfort, rather than a muscle injury.

The results of his scan will determine how long Rovers will be without the forward.

“Sam will go for a scan and we’ll get more information on that later on in the week,” Mowbray said.

“It’s not nice when you see him sprinting down the line trying to get on the end of a ball and pulling up.

“I think it’s more an issue with his foot rather than hamstring and that’s a positive unless he’s damaged a bone. It’s a frustrating one for Sam.

“Darragh was struggling with his knee at half time and I didn’t want to compound an injury by making it any worse.

“I hope Darragh will be ready for the end of next week to prepare for the trip to Cardiff.”
