Latest signing Martin Samuelsen could make his Rovers debut this Saturday against Fulham.

After completing a season-long loan from West Ham United on Thursday, the Norwegian international is expected to go straight into the matchday squad for tomorrow's match at Ewood Park.

Boss Owen Coyle also hopes to include Darragh Lenihan once more after the Republic of Ireland Under-21 captain missed the midweek EFL Cup victory over Crewe Alexandra with a foot injury.

But whilst Corry Evans and Adam Henley are recovering well from groin and hamstring strains respectively, neither will be considered for Saturday's game.

Speaking on Thursday boss Owen Coyle said: "We hope to have Darragh Lenihan fit, although he is still feeling the bruising in his foot so we'll how he is.

"He didn't train on today but we'll look at him on Friday and know better.

"Corry is coming along nicely, he is getting better every day, he is enjoying the sessions and looking sharper. Hopefully when we come back after the international break he is back amongst the group and ready to challenge.

"Adam Henley is making progress but isn't ready to join up with the rest of the squad as yet."

Elliott Ward and Elliott Bennett both remained sidelined.

Tickets for the match are on open sale up until the 3pm kick-off priced from £18 for Adults, £12 Concessions and £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.

Why not avoid the matchday queues by booking online at and collecting them from the Roverstore collection point before kick-off.
