Same squad for Canaries test

18 August 2014

Gary Bowyer will take the same squad on the road once more when Rovers take on Norwich City on Tuesday night.

Rovers, who picked up their first win of the season with the 2-1 victory over Blackpool on Saturday, are still without Tommy Spurr, Chris Brown and Matt Kilgallon for the match against the Canaries.

All three players are making strides in their recovery from injury, but won't be available for the Carrow Road clash.

Speaking ahead of the game, boss Gary Bowyer said: "Chris Brown is making progress but he won't feature, Matt Kilgallon, we are hoping will train in the middle of this week and bring himself into contention for Saturday.

"With Tommy, he is going to be another couple of weeks easily.

"We've recovered from the bumps and bruises from the weekend, so apart from that we are alright."

One of those who has shaken off a weekend knock is defender Grant Hanley. The Rovers captain was a concern during the win over Blackpool, but will be fit to lead the team out on Tuesday.

"The kid wants to play, he's tough mentally, and as you saw he just got up and got on with it," added Bowyer.

"The potential of him is massive. I think already in the two games that he's played he's got better with the ball this season.

"He's worked on that through the close season. The potential for him to improve and the want to improve is unlimited for him."

Tickets for the match will go off sale at Ewood at 11am on Tuesday. After that they'll be available from the Norwich Ticket office - cash only. Prices are £30 Adults, £20 Seniors (65+), £15 for Under 17’s and £10 for Under 12s.
