Rovers' Under-21s are in cup action this Tuesday afternoon when they take on Preston North End in the 1st round of the Lancashire Senior Cup at Brockhall.
Eric Kinder's young charges have made an unbeaten start to the new campaign, with an away win over Brighton & Hove Albion and a home draw against Aston Villa, so they'll be looking to continue that fine form against their near-neighbours.
The Under-21s have a familiar looking squad for the match against the Lilywhites, but are boosted by the welcome addition of Connor Mahoney and Hyuga Tanner who haven't featured this season due to injury.
ROVERS: Raya, Daly, Doyle, Tanner, Lavelle, Lenihan, Mahoney, Bauress, Rittenberg, O'Sullivan, Cham.
Subs: Preston, Crump (GK), Paulo Jorge, Carson, Joel.
PNE: Stuckmann, Smith, Anderton, Fox, Huntington, Davies, Pritchard, Wicks, Hugill, Dsane, Reid.
Subs: Roscoe, Dalton (GK), Lunney, Boyd, Robinson.
Kick-off at the Senior Training Centre is at 1.30pm, all supporters are welcome, admission is free.
