2 March 2017

Tony Mowbray has no fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday's match against Wigan Athletic.

There are just the usual bumps and bruises to assess following the midweek 1-0 victory over Derby County.

Gordon Greer is closing in on a first team return after missing the first two matches of Mowbray's tenure with a calf injury, whilst Hope Akpan serves the last of his four-match suspension this weekend.

Speaking on Thursday the Rovers boss said: "Gordon Greer is back in training. It is obviously frustrating for him to have played against Manchester United only to pick up a calf injury.

"He's been with the medical department in the last week, he's now back in training and we'll see how he goes."

Elliott Ward and Tommie Hoban both played 90 minutes for the development squad on Monday, and could come into consideration this weekend. Corry Evans is stepping up his fitness after a groin injury but won't be involved just yet.
