Midfielder fit to be involved after illness.

Rovers welcome signing Lee Williamson into the squad for this evening's npower Championship match with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The midfielder, who signed an 18-month deal with the club last week, missed Saturday's win over Ipswich Town through illness, but will travel to the south coast with the rest of the team as Rovers visit the AMEX Stadium for the first time tonight.

Williamson is the only addition to the travelling party as although the likes of David Dunn, Leon Best, Dickson Etuhu and Adam Hanley are all making good progress in their bid to return from injury, the game against Gus Poyet's side comes too soon for their involvement.

Todd Kane has returned to Chelsea after his loan spell with Rovers came to an end at the weekend, whilst Josh King and Paul Robinson remain absent.

DJ Campbell's impressive 30-minute debut in Saturday's win gives the manager food for thought ahead of tonight's game, with Appleton expected to select from: Kean, Orr, Dann, Hanley, Martin Olsson, Pedersen, Lowe, Murphy, Markus Olsson, Kazim-Richards, Rhodes, Usai, Givet, Fabio Nunes, DJ Campbell, Williamson, Nuno Gomes, Morris, Goodwillie.

Full match commentary from the AMEX Stadium will be available on Rovers Player tonight, our broadcast will start at approximately 7.30pm.
