Rovers will check on several players carrying knocks before deciding the team to face Millwall on Saturday evening (5.30pm).

Boss Tony Mowbray was tight-lipped over their identities, but captain Charlie Mulgrew was struggling in the closing stages of last weekend's FA Cup tie with Newcastle United.

Ryan Nyambe and Craig Conway are recently back in the fold, while Harrison Reed could be restored to the starting line-up at the New Den having been among the substitutes last weekend.

But there is better news on defender Jack Rodwell, who is expected to return to the fold, with striker Joe Nuttall also set to be among the travelling party to the New Den. 

Mowbray said: “Like most weeks we have a few players who haven’t trained but hopefully will on Friday. There are a few players we need to look after.

“The first time you might feel what the injuries are is when you see the team on Saturday.

“There are one or two players carrying knocks, but we will wait and see what the team is.

“We have a few knocks, but so has every team.

“We will pick a team that we feel can hopefully go and give Millwall problems.”

Rodwell hasn't been involved in the last two games having struggled with a groin problem. But the 27-year-old, who has made 10 appearances this season, is back training

Mowbray added: “He trained on Thursday, trained really well, and there is a chance he will be involved at the weekend.”
