We'll pick a team to give ourselves the best chance to win

Boss short on numbers for Burnley match

11 Hours ago


Tony Mowbray has several injury concerns ahead of tomorrow night's Carabao Cup 2nd round tie with Burnley at Ewood Park.

Rovers v Burnley - Ticket information

14 August 2017

The Rovers boss is likely to be without Darragh Lenihan, Bradley Dack, Ryan Nyambe and Scott Wharton for the visit of the Clarets.

Lenihan is currently sidelined with a foot injury, whilst Dack sustained a grade one hamstring strain in Saturday's victory over Bradford City.

Nyambe missed the match at Valley Parade after sustaining a bruised knee in training, Wharton has an ankle strain.

That leaves the manager short on options, but he insists that despite having an eye on Saturday's league match against MK Dons, he'll pick a side that will be capable of causing an upset.

We'll pick a team that is going to be really competitive and give ourselves the best chance to win on Wednesday night.

Tony Mowbray

"I think we can forget about Lenihan and Dack for tomorrow night," admitted Mowbray.

"I'm not sure whether Ryan will be ready, he didn't train today so we probably won't be risking him.

"Scott Wharton blocked a shot in training and twisted his ankle again today which is a blow for him but I don't think it is too bad.

"So we we start saying one or two aren't ready then the team almost picks itself.

"We might change a few around but generally it will be the same group of players. We know what we've got and we'll push on with those players.

"There aren't too many things to change, but our fans should know that we are going to be committed, we are going to try and win the game, whilst being conscious that we can't be too open against a Premier League side that can pick holes in you if you aren't organised and set up properly.

"When I look at Burnley's squad as well I'm not sure they've got huge changes to make in their team.

"So I would suggest that both teams will be pretty strong. Both teams might have one or two changes from the teams last weekend, but everybody will be committed and trying to win a football match.

"Ultimately we are going to get judged on our league position. Win lose or draw, this game on Wednesday night will be forgotten in a couple of weeks time. It will be in the history books.

"We'll pick a team that is going to be really competitive and give ourselves the best chance to win on Wednesday night, and also a team that will give us the best chance to win on Saturday against MK Dons."
