Tony Mowbray has made two changes for the visit of Brentford to Ewood Park in today's Championship encounter.

Danny Graham drops to the bench, whilst Adam Armstrong is unavailable due to a foot injury and misses out on the squad altogether.

Coming in for the pair are Joe Nuttall, who earns a start after impressing off the bench, and Kasey Palmer, who has shaken off a knock to be included in the XI.

Bradley Dack isn't risked after picking up an injury against Hull City last week and Dominic Samuel is also unavailable having limped off in midweek against old club Reading.

Brentford make four changes from their midweek draw at Aston Villa with Neal Maupey out through suspension, Sergi Canos, Josh McEachran and Lewis MacLeod all on the bench.

Coming in for Dean Smith's side are Nico Yennaris, Kamohelo Mokotjo, Marcus Forss and Said Benrahma.

Kick-off against the Bees is at 3pm and you can follow all the action on iFollow Rovers and via our social media channels.
