Jordan Rhodes could return to the starting line-up for Saturday's match against Derby County.

Rovers' top scorer has been troubled with a foot injury for a number of weeks, missing the FA Cup replay against Manchester City and only starting on the bench last Saturday against Nottingham Forest.

However after a full week of training, the Ewood hotshot is fit once more and ready to face the Rams.

Speaking on Thursday, boss Gary Bowyer said: "Jordan has had a full week's training, so that has all cleared up now.

"He's had a good week, he's been back scoring goals again in training and we'll see what Saturday brings."

Todd Kane has recovered from a thigh strain and is back in the squad, whilst Scott Dann could also be fit after an injury scare.

The Rovers captain left the City Ground with his arm in a sling, but the good news is that he could feature at Ewood.

Paul Robinson could also return after missing the Forest match with a slight hamstring strain.

"Scott had his arm x-rayed and checked out and we are hopeful that he'll be fit and ready for Saturday," added Bowyer.

"One or two others have had time to recover following the busy Christmas period so we are hopeful that everybody is fit and well and ready to go.

"I think there is just Dickson really that is still coming along. I think Corry is scheduled to join in full time on Monday so that is really good news for us.

"We think Paul Robinson will be close, we'll see how he is in the morning, see how he has reacted to training and make a decision from that.

"Apart from that we aren't looking too bad."
