Fit and well for Saturday

15 October 2015

Rovers have no fresh injury worries as the team resume their league campaign this weekend following the international break.

Ahead of Saturday's first league encounter between Rovers and MK Dons, boss Gary Bowyer reports that the players who have been away with their respective countries have all returned fit and well.

There was concern over Jordan Rhodes after the in-form striker missed Scotland's final Euro qualifier against Gibraltar with a slight knee injury, but he has responded well to treatment and is expected to lead the line against MK Dons on Saturday.

Whilst Lee Williamson, who sat out Jamaica's friendly against South Korea with a knee knock, is scheduled to train with the squad on Friday.

Matt Kilgallon and John O'Sullivan are fit after injury, but Danny Guthrie and Fode Koita won't be ready in time for the match in Milton Keynes.

"Jordan is fine, he trained this morning and he's done his extra finishing as he always does," said the Rovers boss earlier today.

"He's had treatment down here and they've got rid of the little niggle that he has.

"Corry Evans, Adam Henley and Tom Lawrence have all come back fit and well. With Lee Williamson, we fully expect him to train tomorrow, he only got back on Wednesday so we've looked after him today.

"Danny Guthrie has been very sensible and he's expected to join back up with the group on Monday.

"Fode is on his way back from the hamstring that he did in training just before the Ipswich game. So he is going to be missing this weekend and then it will be a case of monitoring it throughout the week to see how he goes."

Supporters who haven't yet purchased tickets for Saturday's match against MK Dons will be able to do so on the day of the game.

Some 1100 tickets have so far been sold for the first league visit to stadiummk, with tickets going off sale at Ewood at 4pm this Friday.

After that supporters can buy on the day - cash only from the away ticket booth from 1.00pm.
