Eric Black has no fresh injury worries ahead of Wednesday night's clash with Nottingham Forest.

All the players involved in Saturday's draw at Charlton have reported back fit so Rovers will take a strong squad to the City Ground.

The match probably comes too soon for Colin Kazim-Richards who is on the road to recovery following a knee injury, whilst Markus Olsson (hamstring) and Leon Best (knee) are also missing.

"Colin Kazim is touch and go so we'll see what happens with him," said Black on Tuesday afternoon. "Markus is still out with his hamstring.

"Apart from that we've got some very good players to choose from. There's only the long-term absentee in Leon Best."

Gael Givet is also in the squad after failing to reappear for the second half of Saturday's match at The Valley.

"The outcome has been resolved," revealed Black. "Gael came and spoke to me and outlined the decisions surrounding it. I'm happy with what he had to say.

"He's been spoken to, he's spoken to the rest of the group, he accepts that what he has done was wrong, he's an emotional guy, he just wants to win.

"He's been dealt with internally and we move on, he's in the squad for tomorrow."

Tickets for Wednesday's match will be on sale at Ewood Park until 2pm. Tickets will be on sale at the City Ground at a higher price on the evening of the match.
