Rovers manager Tony Mowbray confirmed that Harry Chapman will be sent for a scan on his hamstring after the winger limped out of the goalless draw with Wigan.

Chapman was brought on for Marcus Antonsson on the hour mark and looked lively after his introduction, twice going close in quick succession, as 10-man Rovers responded well to the controversial sending off of Elliott Bennett.

However, Mowbray's side were forced to play out the final few minutes with nine men, as Chapman hobbled off in added time, and the Rovers boss fears he may be without the talented teenager for Tuesday's visit of Fleetwood.  

"It's really frustraing for us, but sometimes those dynamic footballers, their hamstrings are a bit vulnerable," said Mowbray.

"It's disappointing for us and disappointing for him, but we'll see the extent of the damage when he gets it scanned tomorrow.

"It was a huge physical effort today. We'll have to try and pick the right team on Tuesday and put out a team that can get the three points.

"It's a free hit for us, so we'll look to add to our total of points."
