Tony Mowbray has revealed that he has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday's league game against Bury.

Rovers travel to The Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane looking to climb back into the play-offs with victory over the Shakers, who are bottom of the table.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Mowbray told reporters that while there are "a few knocks and niggles", there are no new concerns going into the game.

"We're generally okay," he said. "We've got a couple of long-terms injuries if you cound Darragh (Lenihan), who we haven't seen since the first game of the season.

"Harry Chapman's injury is a blow to us because of the impact he was having on the team.

"There are a few knocks and niggles, as you'd expect. Craig Conway is not far away, he'll be training early next week and will be available in the next week or so."

Mowbray was also asked about his options in terms of strikers, adding: "We need to utilise the squad as each game comes along.

"Different types of strikers are really important. It's fair to say Joe (Nuttall) has thrust himself in there with the goals he's scored for the Under-23s, but also the first team.

"That's a great credit to him, and there are other young players doing the same, in my mind. The likes of Lewis Travis and Willem Tomlinson are pushing.

"(Joe) Grayson's injured, but is coming back, (Scott) Wharton too. There's a lot of talent here that will stand us in good stead."
