Rovers make two changes from the side that drew with Fulham on Tuesday night for today's lunchtime clash with Preston North End.
After three goals in two substitute outings, Lucas Joao makes his first Rovers start, he replaces Danny Graham who misses out with a knock.
The other change comes in defence with Charlie Mulgrew returning, Tommie Hoban dropping to the bench.
The visitors are unchanged from their victory over Reading last weekend, former Rovers players Tommy Spurr and Paul Gallagher on the bench.
ROVERS: Steele, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew, Williams, Bennett, Lowe (c), Guthrie, Conway, Emnes, Joao.
Subs: Raya (GK), Hoban, Feeney, Gallagher, Akpan, Mahoney, Brown.
PRESTON: Maxwell, Clarke, Boyle, Huntington, Cunningham, Horgan, Johnson, Pearson, McGeady, Barkhuizen, Hugill.
Subs: Lindegaard (GK), Browne, Makienok, Gallagher, Spurr, Robinson, Beckford.
