Rovers boss had made one change from the team's last league outing against Millwall for the away clash against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.
Darragh Lenihan starts for his 100th league appearance of his career, whilst fellow defender Amari'i Bell appears for the 200th time in his career.
Danny Graham takes a place on the bench, with Adam Armstrong continuing to lead the line following his two-goal haul at Carlisle United in midweek.
The boss goes back to the tried and tested defensive pair of Corry Evans and Richie Smallwood, who both sat out Tuesday night's Carabao Cup victory in Cumbria.
Hull include former Rover Todd Kane in their lineup, with the Chelsea loanee expected to play on the left flank this afternoon.
Key man Jarrod Bowen starts, as does the experienced Fraizer Campbell, who will lead the line for the Tigers.
Kick-off in the north-east is at 3pm and you can follow all the action across our social media channels or listen via iFollow Rovers.
