Rovers face Brighton tonight in the Championship, a game that had to be postponed on December 22nd due to the pitch being lightly on the damp side.
It gives new boss Michael Appleton his second chance of getting points on the board on home soil after seeing his side lose out to Charlton Athletic last weekend.
For this game, Appleton has Fabio Nunes, David Dunn and Markus Olsson back from injury as he sets about a first home win.
Midfielder Dunn has been suffering with a calf problem that he picked up in October while the other two return from their time out with hamstring injuries.
But suffering injury is Josh King and he is not expected to make the squad, he will be on the sideline with Dickson Etuhu (knee), right-back Adam Henley (hamstring) and Leon Best.
