Duffy misses out

18 January 2016

Rovers will be without Shane Duffy for this evening's rearranged Emirates FA Cup third round tie with Newport County.

Having picked up a groin strain in the match against Queens Park Rangers last Tuesday, the Irishman is expected to be out for three weeks.

New signing Simeon Jackson won't be involved at Rodney Parade as he wasn't signed before the deadline when the match was due to be played on January 9th, but boss Paul Lambert hopes to have Danny Guthrie and Chris Taylor available after the pair missed the match against Brighton.

Lambert will also give late checks to those involved on Saturday before travelling to Wales this morning, in particular Chris Brown and Matt Killgallon who both came through their first 90 minutes for the manager at the weekend.

Kick-off at Rodney Parade is at 7.15pm, Rovers PlayerHD subscribers can listen to full match commentary from 6.45pm.
