Team news from Meadow Lane as Rovers take on Notts County...

Rovers' youngsters are given a chance to shine in today's final pre-season friendly away to Notts County.

After the first team drew 1-1 with Girona FC at Ewood Park yesterday, it's the turn of Rovers' Under-23s to show what they can do.

There is still some senior experience on show, as goalkeeper David Raya, right-back Ryan Nyambe, midfielder John O'Sullivan and winger Connor Mahoney all start.

Trialist Faissal El Bakhtaoui gets another opportunity to impress up front, with the rest of the team made up of last season's Under-21s.

Scott Wharton and Matty Platt form the centre back pairing, with Jack Doyle at left-back, Connor Thomson and Willem Tomlinson in midfield, and Lewis Mansell partnering El Bakhtaoui in attack.

Former Rovers striker Jon Stead is on the bench for the League Two hosts.
