Rovers have several injury concerns ahead of Saturday's match against Rotherham United.

Danny Graham is a doubt with an ankle injury, whilst Tommie Hoban will require a late check after coming off against Leeds United on Tuesday night.

Owen Coyle will still be without Elliott Ward, Charlie Mulgrew, Anthony Stokes and Adam Henley, but Elliott Bennett is making good progress after geting 80 minutes under his belt for the development squad at the beginning of the week.

"Danny Graham is a concern for Saturday as well as he's troubled with his ankle," said the Rovers boss.

"He's had an injection in the last couple of games to try and get through that and although he did well at Queens Park Rangers it started to tell on him at Leeds United.

"Tommie got a bang towards the top of his leg but he is hopeful that he'll be available for Saturday. We've just have to give the 48 hours that we've got between then and now to see if he's ready to go.

"Marvin Emnes is another one that has got a little niggle from the Leeds United game but hopefully he'll be okay and fit and available.

"So there are a number of bumps and bruises, we'll use the time between now and then to get them fresh and ready to go."
