Rovers welcome back two key players to the squad for Saturday's lunchtime clash with Burnley.

Midfielder Lee Williamson and defender Adam Henley will link up with the seniors for the first time this season after recovering from back and hamstring injuries respectively.

Rovers will be without David Dunn after his minor knee operation, but Jordan Rhodes is fit and well despite a hand injury forcing his early return from international duty.

Speaking ahead of the Turf Moor encounter, boss Gary Bowyer said: "Lee will be back in the squad on Saturday, as will Adam Henley, so that has been the advantage of the international break.

"Obviously with the loss of Dunny, Willow's experience will prove valuable to us as we have a young squad.

"So to have lost Dunny and his experience we are blessed that Willow can return.

"Obviously there was the scare with Jordan but he has been fitted with his cast and everything is fine with him. He was on fire in training scoring goals so he's ready.

"Grant has come back after winning a game for Scotland, Corry is back safe and sound as is Josh.

"DJ is still not quite ready yet but he is progressing nicely and working well with the physios."

Tickets are no longer on sale for the game but fans can watch the match in Blues Bar, or listen online via Rovers Player.
