All three of Rovers’ January recruits will travel with the squad to Hull City with numbers tight in the squad.

Dilan Markanday could go straight into the squad after signing on a permanent deal from Tottenham Hotspur for the game at the MKM Stadium.

James Brown, a free agent signing from Drogheda United, played 72 minutes for the Under-23s in their 1-1 draw with Spurs on Monday night as he continues to get up to speed.

With Ryan Nyambe suspended, as well as injuries to Tyrhys Dolan and Harry Pickering, Mowbray’s options are stretched, with the 23-year-old in line for a first inclusion in a matchday squad.

Loan recruit Deyovaisio Zeefuik trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Monday after his move from Hertha Berlin was confirmed last week.

He will travel with the squad to East Yorkshire but isn’t expected to be included in the matchday 18.

Nyambe is suspended after his red card in the win at Cardiff City which opens the door for Joe Rankin-Costello who is line to make his first start since April after being sidelined by first a broken foot and them a hamstring issue.

“He’ll come to Hull and watch and we’ll see how quickly he can get up to speed to compete to get in and around our team,” Mowbray said of Zeefuik.

“Dilan should be travelling with us.

“James Brown will probably jump on the coach and come with us. He’s not someone in my mind as someone who will break in straight away because Zeefuik is going to break in before him, but he did at well at Tottenham and we are short on numbers.

“I’m making sure we put the full allocation on the bench so he’ll come along and help fill that bench.”

Brown has played twice for the Under-23s to build up his fitness having been without a club since the end of the Irish season.

Zeefuik is also short of minutes due to the winter break in Germany, last playing a competitive game on December 18.

Markanday has the most recent match experience of the three, scoring for Spurs in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United on January 10.
