Rovers' Under-23s will be looking to make it back-to-back league wins with victory over Brighton on Monday evening.

Damien Johnson's side currently sit second in the standings and will be full of confidence after beating Fulham 4-0 last time out.

Brighton, meanwhile, are without a win in four league games and sit just three points above bottom club West Brom.

Rovers are expected to be boosted by the return of defender Scott Wharton, who has recovered from an ankle injury, while Joe Grayson is also available after suspension.

In-form forward Joe Nuttall is again likely to lead the line for the Blues, having already scored 11 goals in all competitions so far this season.

Kick-off at the Amex Stadium is scheduled for 7:00pm .
