Roberts set for Rovers return

30 October 2009 08:58
Roberts has been sidelined with a calf strain, but is ready to give manager Sean O'Driscoll a selection dilemma after James Chambers had stepped in for the last two matches.

Right-back James O'Connor sustained a thigh injury in last weekend's defeat at Newcastle and missed training earlier in the week, but is expected to be okay.

O'Driscoll is still without skipper Brian Stock (knee) and central defenders Adam Lockwood (foot) and Byron Webster (elbow), so Sam Hird will resume alongside on-loan Jason Shackell at the heart of defence. Webster could soon be ready to return to training after dislocating his elbow in the draw at Sheffield United last month.

Sean McDaid and Steve Brooker (both knee) are still on their way back from long-term injuries.
