Corry Evans will travel with the Rovers squad to Reading tomorrow after missing the weekend defeat to Bristol City.

Evans was forced off on the hour mark against Brentford earlier this month after being on the receiving end of several strong tackles.

The Northern Ireland international was replaced by Richie Smallwood at the weekend, but there could be a quick return to the side for the 28-year-old at the Madejski Stadium.

Rovers will be without Darragh Lenihan for up to eight weeks with a knee injury, while Harry Chapman is still a way from making his first team return after returning to the club in January.

Charlie Mulgrew made a timely return from a hamstring injury to replace Lenihan, while Mowbray made another switch in the back four as Derrick Williams came in for Amari’i Bell.

The boss remains happy with the options at his disposal however, believing a tight-knit squad can be beneficial, as he admitted there could be more changes in the near future.

On Evans' return, Mowbray said:  “There’s potentially a swap around for this week. We’re at this stage when there will be a bit of rotation, but I don’t think there’s a weakening of the team.

“Everyone has their favourites, but is Derrick Williams for Amari’i Bell weakening the team, or vice versa? I don’t think it is.

“Some of the wide players we have I don’t see it as a huge difference.

“We’ve talked about bedding the likes of Brereton in to this football club and at some stage he’s going to be given an opportunity to play game after game and he has to produce the goods. Rothwell falls in to that category as well.

“We will be making changes along the way and hopefully we can find positive results.”
