We've got some options now

Rovers have been handed a squad boost ahead of this Saturday's home match with Gillingham.

For the treatment table looks a lot lighter after Ben Gladwin, Scott Wharton, Craig Conway and Rekeem Harper all returned to training this Thursday.

That leaves just Darragh Lenihan on the injured list as the Irishman continues his recovery from an operation on a broken bone in his foot, and in turn gives boss Tony Mowbray a nice selection headache.

"The injured boys were all back training today apart from Lenihan," said the manager.

"Rekeem, Ben, Craig, Scott, they were all training today so there are some options there for us.

"The secret is to try and pick the right team and get the job done. To work hard and know that they are competing with each other to try and get into the starting line-up.

"There are a few players knocking on the door to try and get in the starting line-up. We'll see how the players who are coming back from injury are tomorrow to make sure there are no aches and pains on the back of a training session.

"We'll put the squad out and we'll try and pick a team to get three points against Gillingham. We've got some options now."
