The manager has both DJ Campbell and Lee Williamson available for selection for the first ever league match between the two sides.
Speaking on Thursday afternoon, the Rovers boss said: "DJ came back in training on Tuesday and has trained with us, so he's a normal squad player now, he's available for selection.
"We just have to keep seeing how we are and monitoring how he is. We'll just judge him as every other player.
"We've also had good news Lee Williamson has trained yesterday and today as obviously he missed last week.
"Josh King is back fit, he had a dead leg that he came off with last week, but has shaken that off.
"So everybody is nearing full fitness, Corry Evans has been out this week as well and he's looking good so hopefully he'll be back sooner rather than later.
"With the busy period that we've got we are hoping that we can get on with introducing him back in soon."
"We'll see over the next couple of games with the busy schedule the strength of the squad and we'll utilise it as we see fit.
"But it will be a squad game over the Christmas period that is for sure."
Tickets for Saturday's match will be on sale until 2.30pm Friday from Ewood and from 12pm Friday in the town centre.
Tickets are priced from £20 Adults, £15 Seniors, £13 16-21s and £1 Juniors Under 16s. Tickets will be on sale on the day of the game from Huish Park with prices rising £2 except for Juniors.
