Strikers providing selection posers

Manager Gary Bowyer admits the club's forwards are currently giving plenty of selection headaches.

Top scorer Rudy Gestede has 15 goals to his name, with Jordan Rhodes hot on his tail with 11. But with Chris Brown and Josh King back and making their mark having returned to full fitness after injury-disrupted seasons, it leaves the manager with a host of forward options.

"Browny was missing for a large chunk of the season, then Kingy was missing," said the Rovers boss. "But now there is real competition there because they all bring something completely different to the table.

"Rudy gets his goal and he continues to keep scoring. The pair them, him and Kingy, were a handful against Stoke on the Saturday and again on Tuesday night.

"Then we've got the ability to be able to bring on someone like Brown and Jordan Rhodes, who does what he does best.

"So we are in a good position in that place and it is something that we have worked very hard to get to."
