A good selection headache to have

Rovers will take a strong squad south for Saturday's match with Queens Park Rangers.

Deadline day signings Marvin Emnes and Charlie Mulgrew both come into contention, as does Corry Evans who is back to full fitness.

All three played in a behind closed doors game against Accrington Stanley earlier in the week with Emnes scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win to increase the manager's options.

Elliott Bennett and Adam Henley are both making good progress and could feature in the Premier League 2 match against Norwich at Ewood on Monday night, leaving only Elliott Ward as the only long-term absentee.

"Having the likes of Evans, Mulgrew and Emnes available gives me a good problem to have," said boss Owen Coyle.

"They all have benefitted from the game the other day, so they'll certainly be in the squad and we'll make a decision from there.

"Elliott Bennett and Adam Henley are also on their way back. They didn't manage to take part in the closed doors game the other day, but they could play in the game on Monday. That means there's just Elliott Ward as the longer term one."

Fans who haven't yet purchased tickets for Saturday's match should note that tickets will go off sale at Ewood Park at 4pm from Friday. Advanced prices are from £28 Adults, £19 Seniors/18-21yrs and £13 Juniors.

After that tickets will be on sale on the day at Loftus Road, cash only from the away turnstiles, but supporters should note there is a price increase. Matchday prices are £37 Adults, £27 Seniors/18-21yrs and £20 Juniors.
