31 March 2016

Rovers will be without Grant Hanley for Saturday's lunchtime clash with Preston North End.

The Rovers captain received his marching orders in the 1-0 away win over Brentford last time out, so sits out this weekend's match serving a one-match ban.

But whilst Rovers will be without their influential defender, boss Paul Lambert has reported no fresh injury worries from those who have been on international duty during the break.

Rovers had seven players away with their respective national sides this past week, but all have returned fit and well in advance of Saturday's lunchtime match against Preston North End.

Corry Evans is also making good progress following a minor groin operation, but the weekend's clash comes too soon. Jason Lowe is also edging closer to full fitness following long-term injuries, and is expected to play for the Under-21s against Arsenal at Leigh Sports Village on Friday night.

"Everybody seems okay at the minute, there are still lads coming back from their international teams today so we'll see how everybody is on Friday," said Lambert.

"Corry is doing really well, he's trained for the last couple of days outside with the medical team. This game will be too early for him, so we'll see how he is after the weekend.

"Jason Lowe is getting closer, there's a game against tomorrow with the Under-21s so it'll give him a chance to get more minutes.

"He's not played 90 minutes yet so it is hard when you've been out that length of time so we have to get him up to speed, but he is edging closer to it."
