Gary Bowyer will give late checks to the Olsson twins ahead of the Bank Holiday match against Cardiff City.

Martin and Markus Olsson are both struggling with knocks and missed out in Friday's 1-1 draw with Blackpool and whilst Monday's match in the Welsh capital might come too soon for the duo, they'll be given as long a time as possible to prove their fitness.

Aside from both Olsson's, Rovers' treatment room is looking less busy with the likes of Colin Kazim-Richards, Lee Williamson and Josh King returning to action, and Bowyer doesn't believe there were any further injuries sustained on Friday.

"We'll have to assess the two Olsson's but I don't think we've picked up any more knocks, so that will be the positive," said Bowyer.

"We've got a big squad and they are coming back fit now.

"Obviously we've got to be sensible with one or two. Blackpool was Josh King's first game after injury.

"We've got to be sensible with our selection, but whoever plays are good players, and I'm sure they'll give their all for the club."

Tickets for Monday's match are no longer on sale, and there are no sales on the day at Cardiff City.
