Rovers boss Tony Mowbray says there won't be any rush back for Harry Chapman as the attacker begins his rehabilitation.
The youngster has missed the last couple of months for Rovers after picking up a hamstring injury in the 0-0 draw at Wigan earlier in the season.
However, Mowbray is content with the progress made and is optimistic of seeing the Middlesbrough loanee in blue and white before the end of the campaign.
"I had a meeting in the north-east with Harry a week or so ago," Tony said.
"He's okay and in good fettle. He's a nice lad and has started his rehab, which is really good news.
"There's no rush. He's a young boy and he needs to take his time in getting himself fully recovered rather than racing to play again.
"We're hopeful he'll play again this season but we're not putting the pressure on him."
We'll be giving you updates on Harry's recovery throughout the next couple of months.
