Lowe, Delfouneso and Guthrie to return to action

14 March 2016

There'll be senior stars on show for the Under-21s when face Fulham at Brockhall this Monday lunchtime.

Jason Lowe, Nathan Delfouneso and Danny Guthrie will all get some minutes under their belts as they look to return to full fitness.

Lowe hasn't featured for Rovers since the end of August as a long-standing foot problem required further surgery, but he is expected to get some minutes under his belt.

Likewise, Delfouneso, who has been sidelined since the turn of the year having had an operation on a knee operation, and Guthrie who has been absent with a hamstring strain.

Along with fellow senior Simon Eastwood, all three bolster Damien Johnson's development squad as they bid to make it three matches unbeaten.

Victory over Swansea City was followed up by a well-earned point away at West Ham United last time out.

However when Rovers met the Cottagers in the corresponding fixture back in September Johnson's side were on the end of a heavy 3-0 defeat.

ROVERS: Eastwood, Travis, Askew, Lowe, Lavelle (c), Wharton, Mahoney, Guthrie, Delfouneso, Hardcastle, Thomson.

Subs: Platt, Fisher, Rankin-Costello, Tomlinson, Mansell.

FULHAM: Bettinelli, Sheckleford, Pino Soler, Davies, Donnelly, Smile, Adeniran, de la Torre, Walker, Thorsteinsson, Humphrys.

Subs: Norman, Kwietniewski, Redford.

Kick-off at the Academy is at 12.30pm. All supporters are welcome.
