Selection poser for Bowyer

7 August 2013

Gary Bowyer will check on knocks picked up in Sunday's draw at Derby before naming his squad for this evening's Capital One Cup tie at Carlisle United.

With a large squad at his disposal, the manager may use tonight's cup clash to give an opportunity to those who missed out at the weekend. 

"It is another game to win and we want to get through to the next round that is for sure," said Bowyer.

"We've got one or two that have got knocks at the moment so there'll be one or two that will be missing.

"But it also provides us a chance to give the opportunity to one or two others to go and put pressure on the players that are already performing in the team, so it bodes well.

"There are enough players in the squad, it has been well documented how big it is and we'd be daft not to provide them with the opportunity to stake a claim."

Supporters who haven't yet purchased tickets for this evening's cup match can do so at Brunton Park.

Rovers Player subscribers can listen to full match commentary from 7.30pm.
