Coming in for Rovers at Bloomfield Road are one-time Blackpool loanee Danny Graham - who impressed off the bench on Saturday - and Elliott Bennett - another to have started as a substitute on the day.

Swapping places with the duo are Joe Nuttall and Corry Evans, who can both be utilised off the bench for Tony Mowbray if required.
