Rovers are forced into two changes from the side that drew with Middlesbrough seven days ago.
Injuries to Grant Hanley (shoulder) and Danny Graham (hamstring) mean starts for Shane Duffy and Simeon Jackson, with Duffy wearing the captain's armband.
The visitors make one change from the side that lost narrowly at Burnley, with Tom Huddlestone getting the nod ahead of Isaac Hayden.
The home side then had to make a further change as the two sides lined up at kick-off as Hope Akpan pulled up in the warm-up, his place taken by Craig Conway
