Rovers will be grateful for the enforced break after injuries to key players against Leeds on Saturday.

With international matches taking place over the next ten days Rovers aren't back in action until they face Bristol City on Saturday 15th September which will come as some relief after yesterday's match.

Scott Dann had to be replaced after just ten minutes at Elland Road, the central defender sustaining a hamstring injury, whilst his defensive partner Gael Givet had to have a painkilling injection after being caught by a boot on the top of his foot.

Speaking after the match, Steve Kean explained: "Scott felt his hamstring so we took him off so as not to aggravate the injury further and Garl Givet probably should have come off because he may have cracked a bone in the top of his foot.

"So he had to have a painkilling injection and stayed on.

"Then Grant feels his knee, so everybody was digging in, so credit to the players we have come to a really really tough venue and we've come back and nicked a point in the end."

Dann and Givet are both expected to have recovered in time for the game at Ashton Gate, Colin Kazim-Richards should also be back after his knee injury and Martin Olsson will have had another week of training under his belt.
