Selection poser for Bowyer

30 October 2014

Gary Bowyer admits he has a selection headache ahead of Saturday's match against Reading.

For the first time in a long time the Rovers boss had to leave several first team members out of his 18-man squad in the 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest last weekend, and it will be the same situation at Ewood Park against the Royals.

Rovers have no fresh injury concerns for the visit of Nigel Adkins' side, with a near fully-fit squad at his disposal. Bowyer has just Chris Brown (knee), Tommy Spurr (groin) and Jason Lowe (foot) absent.

"A selection headache is something that I've probably not had enough of in the time that I've been manager because we've always had injuries," said the Rovers manager.

"Throughout the course of the season people are going to be left out and it was a tough call on Saturday to leave people out.

"But that is the nature of the business, it is a great position to be in, and it is full credit to the progress that the football club has made.

"We'll pick the players that we feel are right to go out and do the job. The players have taken to whatever system we've played, it is about them going out and giving their all."
