Rovers hopes over Hanley

Boss Gary Bowyer expects Grant Hanley to be fit to face Birmingham City at St. Andrew's on Tuesday night.

The Rovers captain couldn't complete the full 90 minutes in the 2-0 win over Leeds United after sustaining a cut to his face that required stitches, during which the defender then picked up a migrane which meant he couldn't return to action.

"I thought it was a bad challenge on him," said the manager after the match.

"He's got stitches and then he suffered a migrane so we had to make the call to bring him off.

"It wasn't concussion or anything like that, it was a migrane, but it was great that we had someone of the calibre of Matt Kilgallon to come on and we are delighted with that."

One player who will miss Rovers' next match is midfielder Corry Evans.

The Northern Ireland international picked up his fifth booking of the campaign so will sit out the Birmingham clash.

"It was avoidable," added Bowyer. "Because it was a foul on Hope Akpan leading up to it.

"So we are disappointed because he's been in unbelievable form for us, but what it does it presents someone else with a chance."
