Despite a busy schedule of matches, boss Tony Mowbray isn't anticipating making wholesale changes to the side for tomorrow night's match with Fulham.

Rovers will run the rule over hamstrung duo Charlie Mulgrew and Sam Gallagher after the pair missed the weekend draw with Norwich City, but Craig Conway is available once more.

The game at Craven Cottage will be Mowbray's sixth match in just over a fortnight, but he is eager to maintain the confidence gleaned from an unbeaten start to his tenure.

"We've got a couple of fatigue injuries with Charlie Mulgrew and Sam Gallagher picking up slight hamstrings," said the head coach.

"Saturday was our fifth game in 15 days, Tuesday will be the sixth in 18 days, and Saturday will be the seventh in 22 days, they just keep on coming.

"At some stage, as we have found, a few of their bodies break down because of the work, especially at the intensity that we are trying to play at trying to get some points.

"In my first three or four games it was the same team because they had done so well. The workload eventually breaks one or two of them down and then you find out about the others because they have to go and play.

"It wasn't a case of rotation for rotation sake it was trying to keep the confidence and belief going from some positive results and we are still in that vein really, there aren't going to be huge changes going to Fulham.

"Whilst at the weekend we were frustrated, I felt there was lots of positives and we have to try and use that going into this game."
