Injured duo to be assessed

12 March 2017

Tony Mowbray hopes that Charlie Mulgrew and Sam Gallagher will overcome minor knocks to be involved in Tuesday night's match with Fulham.

The pair missed Saturday's 2-2 draw at Norwich City with tight hamstrings, something the manager felt was the outcome of playing so many matches in such a short space of time.

However, if the injured duo come through training on Monday morning then it is likely that they'll be included in the travelling party for the Craven Cottage clash.

"Charlie had a test on Saturday morning," revealed the Rovers boss. "It was a bit frustrating really, he was fine after the game and he trained Friday and from what I'm hearing he did some extra physical activity, some runs, some stride-outs like he normally does before a game.

"My view is that it is probably an overload injury from all the games that he has played and that he has probably gone over the line a little bit with doing too much.

"He felt a bit uncomfortable, had a test and decided it wasn't right for him. But it was good for Tommie Hoban to come back.

"It is the same with Sam, again I think it is an overload injury particularly from the games program and the amount of running that he does in each match.

"I'm pretty sure they won't be too long. We need to assess it and get them in on Monday and see if they are going to join in training and make a decision."

Tickets for the match at Fulham are on open sale priced at £20 for Adults, £15 for Seniors 65+ and 18-21 year-olds, £10 for fans aged 17 and under.
