9 July 2016

Team news from the Keine Sorgen Arena for Rovers' first pre-season friendly match of the summer...

New Rovers boss Owen Coyle has named his first starting XI for today's fixture against Austrian Bundesliga side SV Ried.

Jason Steele starts in goal for Rovers, with a back four of Jason Lowe, Elliott Ward, Scott Wharton and summer signing Stephen Hendrie.

Darragh Lenihan and Hope Akpan form the midfield two, with Elliott Bennett and Craig Conway on the flanks.

Ben Marshall will start behind striker Danny Graham, who recently completed a permanent move to the club.

Grant Hanley picked up a knee injury in training yesterday, so will play no part in today's game as a precaution.

Fellow Academy graduate Lowe will captain the side in the Scotland international's absence.

A different XI is expected to line-up for the second half, featuring new recruits Liam Feeney, Jack Byrne and Anthony Stokes.

Kick-off has been delayed until 6.15pm local time.
