Keep up-to-date with events from Rovers second pre-season match of the summer via our twitter feed below.

Jason Lowe returns to the Rovers line-up for the first time since February for tonight's pre-season friendly against Rochdale.

The midfielder was sidelined for long spells last season with a persistent foot problem, but makes his comeback at Spotland after putting in the extra hours to get back to full fitness.

Rovers are without their three first-choice strikers, with Jordan Rhodes (ankle) & Chris Brown (knee) both missing through injury, whilst Rudy Gestede played in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Crewe earlier today.

The towering targetman scored twice in a 45-minute run-out after recovering from the knock which ruled him out of the Accrington friendly and trip to Portugal.

Chris Taylor (groin), Darragh Lenigan (back) and Anton Forrester (hamstring) are also unavailable for tonight's game at against the League One club.

Jason Steele, Simon Eastwood, Ryan Nyambe, Matt Kilgallon, Tommy Spurr, Corry Evans and new signing Sacha Petshi all played in the game against Crewe at Brockhall at lunchtime.
