Paul Lambert hopes to have Danny Graham back in his squad for Saturday's trip to Brentford.

The on-loan striker missed the midweek match at Ipswich Town with a back complaint, but the boss is confident that he'll be fit enough to return for the weekend match against the Bees.

"Hopefully Danny will be okay, we'll see how he feels over the next couple of days," said Lambert.

"He is a big part of the way we have been playing recently as he has been excellent for us, which I knew he would, so hopefully he will be okay."

"Everybody else is alright, just tiredness. So it is a case of resting their bodies and getting them going again and hopefully we'll get one or two back that never played against Ipswich."

Jason Lowe, Danny Guthrie and Nathan Delfouneso all reported no problems having featured last Monday for the Under-21s, but none will be considered for tomorrow's match at Griffin Park.

Lambert added: "The three of them are okay, they came through alright. They are way still short of it but they have been out a long time so they'll need time to get back into it."

Rovers supporters who haven't yet purchased their tickets for Saturday's match against Brentford have the option to pay on the day.

However with a £5 price increase in the matchday cost at Griffin Park for all price bands expect U18s, supporters are advised to get them from the Roverstore at Ewood Park before the 4pm deadline this Friday.

Fans can opt to purchase seating or terrace tickets, with advanced seating tickets priced at £28 Adults, £22 Seniors (65 & over), £20 18-21 year-olds and £6 Under 18s. Or advance terrace tickets at £23 Adults, £17 Seniors (65 & over), £15 18-21 year-olds and £6 Under 18s.
