Same squad for Wednesday

23 October 2012

Eric Black has the same squad at his disposal for tomorrow night's match, with young Raheem Hanley added to the ranks.

Rovers have no fresh injury worries for the midweek match against Sheffield Wednesday.

Eric Black's side return to Ewood Park this Wednesday night and the interim boss has a large squad of players to choose from.

Also added to the squad is Raheem Hanley who has impressed for the Reserves and on England Under-19 duty.

Markus Olsson (hamstring), Simon Vukcevic (groin), Leon Best (knee) and Fabio Nunes (hamstring) remain on the sidelines and will miss out.

"We've had the full 19 that travelled to Derby at the weekend train today," said Black on Thursday.

"And we've added young Raheem Hanley to the squad who did really well last night in the Reserve game, as did the whole of the Reserve team, so certainly a big pat on the back to Gary Bowyer.

"We thought we'd bring him in because he impressed and his enthusiasm is infections and his desire to be a footballer really sticks out so we've brought him into the squad."

Black will select from: Robinson, Orr, Olsson, Givet, Lowe, Dunn, Formica, Rhodes, Pedersen, Murphy, Dann, Etuhu, Nuno Gomes, Rochina, G. Hanley, Ribeiro, Kean, Rosado, Kazim-Richards, R. Hanley.

Tickets for the game are on open sale right up until the 7.45pm kick-off, priced from £19 for Adults, £12 Seniors and £7 Juniors.
