Paul Lambert has revealed he came close to giving a second youngster his first senior start in Rovers colours on Tuesday night.
Connor Mahoney was in the starting XI for the match against Nottingham Forest, and he was almost joined by defender Jack Doyle.
"Jack was very unlucky as I had in my mind that I was going to start him," admitted the Rovers boss.
"But to throw two young kids in at a place like this I decided against it. But Jack's time will come because he's been playing well with the 21s."
The pair could be on show when Rovers take on Bristol City this Saturday at Ewood Park.
Tickets are on open sale priced from £18 for Adults, £12 Seniors and 18-21 year-olds, and from £7 for Under-17s.
