Late checks required

3 March 2015

Rovers will check on bumps and bruises ahead of the match against Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow night.

Boss Gary Bowyer reports no fresh injury worries for the game against the Owls, but he will be without four first team players.

Shane Duffy joined Jason Lowe in being out for the season after undergoing a knee operation on Thursday, whilst Grant Hanley and Josh King will be unavailable for the match at Hillsborough.

Speaking on Tuesday, the Rovers boss said: "Everybody has recovered from the journey and the terrific performance there, we've just got to wait on one or two in the morning but hopefully they should be fine.

"Obviously Duffy has had his operation so he's out for the season, but he's up and about the training ground now. He's still on crutches but he's got his head around the hard work that lies ahead for him.

"Grant is progressing so we are hoping that he can get out on the training pitch this week.

"Josh King is doing the same now, he's walking pain free which is important, so he's on his first stages of rehab. Jason Lowe, having had his operation, still has a long way to go.

"They are the four big ones for us and everybody else at the moment is just bumps and bruises and one or two knocks.

"That is part and parcel of the game, it was at a similar time last year when we had one or two like that so we're experienced enough to know how to deal with these situations."

Tickets for Wednesday's match will go off sale at Ewood Park at 2.00pm on the day of the game.

Fans can also gain admission at Hillsborough by paying cash only at the away turnstiles. Prices are £20 Adults, £10 Seniors/11-16yrs and £5 Under 11s.
