Rovers make one change from the side that tasted defeat last time out.
Ryan Tunnicliffe comes back into the starting line-up to bolster midfield with Jordan Rhodes dropping to the bench.
Injury and illness sees Rovers without Tom Cairney, Chris Brown, Chris Taylor, Tommy Spurr, Matt Kilgallon and Josh King, but Jason Lowe makes the bench, his first involvement with the first team since the end of August.
There's also one change for a Brentford eleven that features former Rovers Jonathan Douglas and Alan Judge, as Jota replaces Jon Toral.
