Paul Lambert is pleased with the squad of players that he has at his disposal after the emergency loan window closed on Thursday.

After bringing defender Doneil Henry back to the clu, the Rovers boss had the option to go for one more player, but chose to stick with the playing staff available.

Lambert believes his squad is large enough and wants to give everyone here the opportunity to stake a claim for a first team place.

"I'm delighted with the group I've got and I want to give everybody a chance to see what they can do here," said the manager.

"We've a big enough squad anyway and the lads that we've got have done ever so well for us. There's ones who haven't played or even made the bench that are good players."

Doneil Henry made the loan move back to Rovers earlier in the week and Lambert has been pleased with the way the Canadian has settled back into the familiar surroundings of the Ribble Valley.

"He looks great," added the Rovers boss. "I know the injury he had and I know he did well when he was here.

"I just felt we were a little bit light and that we needed another defender to help the lads that are already here.

"He's been very good in training. He's only just here, but he knows the football club very well and that is half the battle.

"He's not looked out of place by any stretch and he's set his stall out really well in the first few days he's been here."

Tickets for Paul Lambert's first game in charge at Ewood this Saturday are on open sale with prices from £22 for Adults, from £14 Seniors and 18-21 year-olds and from just £9 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
