Lowe back to face the Latics

15 January 2015

Gary Bowyer has a near fully-fit squad for Saturday's match against Wigan Athletic.

The Rovers squad could be boosted by the return of Jason Lowe and Tommy Spurr for the trip to face the Latics at the DW Stadium.

Spurr played 90 minutes in the Under-21s win over Aston Villa earlier in the week, whilst Lowe has reported no issues after a full week of training.

"Everybody is more or less there," revealed the manager.

"Fitness-wise Tommy Spurr came through a full ninety minutes for the reserves on Monday night, and Jason Lowe has trained all week with us.

"Off the back of the performance and the defeat last week then it opens it up for people to stake a claim to get themselves into the team."

The return of Lowe is a timely bonus, with the Rovers boss admitting that the midfielder has been a big loss to the squad.

"I think what it has done is shown to the supporters what a miss he has been for us," Bowyer told Rovers Player.

"His energy, desire and his will to win for the club that he has been at for a long time is unbelievable.

"It is no secret that we have conceded some soft goals this season. Lowey, in that position that he plays, is very good in sensing and seeing danger, so it is probably no co-incidence that his loss has been with the fact we've conceded some soft goals."
