Tony Mowbray has made one change to the XI from Rovers' last league outing at Peterborough for the visit of Charlton to Ewood Park.

Peter Whittingham misses out after picking up a muscle injury last week, but his replacement that day in Corry Evans is fit enough to play, in the only change.

That means that Craig Conway will start his third game in a week, taking his place on the right of a three behind front man Dominic Samuel.

Marcus Antonsson has shaken off a niggle to take his place in the XI, and it's a milestone match for Derrick Williams, who will make his 200th career appearance when he takes to the field.

Ex-Rovers coach and current Charlton manager Karl Robinson names ex-Rover Leon Best on the bench for the trip to Ewood Park.

Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Downing, Mulgrew (c), Williams, Smallwood, Evans, Conway, Dack, Antonsson, Samuel.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Graham, Ward, Caddis, Harper, Tomlinson, Nuttall.

Charlton: Amos, Reeves, Da Silva, Magennis, Forster-Caskey, Solly (c), Marshall, Pearce, Aribo, Clarke, Konsa.

Substitutes: Jackson, Best, Phillips, Ahearne-Grant, Dodoo, Sarr, Lennon.
