Team news from the Globe Arena as Rovers take on Bury...

Academy defender Tyler Magloire gets his first run out for the senior side in today's opening game against Bury.

The 17-year-old scholar, who featured 23 times for the Under-18s last season, including twice in the FA Youth Cup run to the semi-final stage, starts in the centre of defence alongside Elliott Ward.

Jason Steele starts in goal, with Jason Lowe at right-back and Jack Doyle at left-back.

Hope Akpan and Danny Guthrie form the midfield duo, with Elliott Bennett and Connor Mahoney on the flanks.

John O'Sullivan supports Danny Graham, who scored the winner against SV Ried last weekend, up front.

Grant Hanley misses out due to the knee injury he picked up in Austria, whilst Corry Evans and Shane Duffy don't return to pre-season training until Monday following their involvement at Euro 2016.

Following the opening game against Bury (kick-off 1pm), Rovers will face hosts Morecambe at 2.30pm. 

Trialist Faissal El Bakhtaoui, who fired Dunfermline to the Scottish League One title last season with 30 goals in 41 games, will be a substitute in both of today's games.

ROVERS: Steele, Lowe, Ward, Magloire, Doyle, Bennett, Akpan, Guthrie, Mahoney, O'Sullivan, Graham.
Sub: El Bakhtaoui.
