Paul Lambert welcomes back Danny Graham and Matt Grimes to the squad for this evening's Sky Bet Championship clash at Derby County.

The pair missed the weekend FA Cup encounter with West Ham United due to being cup-tied, but both could come into contention for tonight's match at the iPro Stadium.

The Rovers boss is also hoping to include Grant Hanley (shoulder), Tommy Spurr (knee) and Corry Evans (groin) for the game against the Rams. But Jason Lowe (foot), Danny Graham (hamstring), Nathan Delfouneso (knee) and Lee Williamson (calf) remain absent.

"We aren't looking too bad, Grant has trained, as have Tommy and Corry," said Lambert.

"Tommy hurt his knee against Hull so he did well to play against Fulham as well, but it was just too much to ask him to go and play against West Ham, so hopefully he'll be okay.

"We'll have Danny and Matty available after they were cup-tied so they'll be fine.

"So hopefully everybody is okay and we'll be a lot stronger."

Supporters who haven't yet purchased tickets for tonight's match with Derby County have until 2.00pm this afternoon to get them from Ewood Park.
