Tony Mowbray has made one change to his lineup for the game against Southend United at Ewood Park, with Rovers going in search of a fourth win in a row.

Marcus Antonsson drops to the bench and Craig Conway returns to the starting XI for the clash against the Shrimpers.

Jack Payne could be an option from the bench against the side where he started his career, whilst the game still comes too soon for Darragh Lenihan, with Paul Downing partnering Charlie Mulgrew - another ex-Southend man - at the heart of the Rovers defence.

Danny Graham makes his 100th appearance for Rovers and will go in search of adding to his 15 goals this season before the afternoon's out.

For the visitors, former Burnley winger Michael Kightly starts on the wing, whilst another ex-Premier League player in Michael Turner will be a centre back for Chris Powell's side.

Rovers: Raya, Bennett, Downing, Mulgrew (c), Williams, Smallwood, Evans, Armstrong, Dack, Conway, Graham.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Samuel, Whittingham, Caddis, Bell, Payne, Antonsson.

Southend: Oxley, Demetriou, White, Turner, Coker (c), McLaughlin, Yearwood, Mantom, Timlin, Kightly, Cox.

Substitutes: Bishop, Wordsworth, Ferdinand, Fortune, Harrison, Robinson, Wright.
