Rovers will check on a few bumps and bruises ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet Championship opener against Norwich City.

Boss Owen Coyle hopes to welcome back Craig Conway for the visit of the Canaries after a thigh strain, but Corry Evans will be absent through injury.

"There are one or two we need to check on," revealed the manager.

"Corry Evans came back from the Euros where he performed very well with a slight niggle, and whilst it is getting better, Saturday will be too soon for him.

"He had a brief outing at Blackpool but hopefully we can get him up and running soon so he can add to the rest of the lads in the squad.

"There are one or two little knocks, but hopefully we will have the squad that was available last week plus Craig Conway who is now back in contention. So bit by bit we are getting there."

It still isn't too late to get a season ticket ahead of the campaign, and with adult prices from just £279 - the equivalent of less than £13 per game - it represents exceptional value for money.
