Live updates from Ewood Park as Rovers take on Shrewsbury Town in the Capital One Cup 1st round...

Rovers have made nine changes to their starting XI for this evening's Capital One Cup 1st round clash with Shrewsbury Town.

Only Ben Marshall and Nathan Delfouneso retain their place in the squad from the weekend match with Wolves.

Gary Bowyer was eager to see some of the younger lads in action, and has handed a first team debut to 17-year-old defender Ryan Nyambe, whilst fellow Academy graduates Darragh Lenihan and John O'Sullivan also start.

New signing Modou Barrow received his international clearance and is named on the substitute's bench, but fellow new arrival Hope Akpan wasn't signed in time to be eligible for tonight's game.

ROVERS: Steele, Nyambe, Lenihan, Kilgallon (c), Spurr, O'Sullivan, Evans, Williamson, Marshall, Brown, Delfouneso.

Subs: Raya (GK), Koita, Rhodes, Duffy, Guthrie, Barrow, Conway.

SHREWSBURY: Leutwiler, Grandison, Barnett, Lawrence, Goldson, Ogogo, R. Woods, M. Woods, Sadler, Tootle, Collins.

Subs: Burton (GK), McAlinden, Akpa-Akpro, Brown, Whalley, Clark, Ellis.
