Tony Mowbray has made two changes to the starting lineup for Millwall's visit to Ewood Park this afternoon in our opening home fixture of the Championship season.

There's a switch at left back, with Derrick Williams not involved due to injury and Amari'i Bell replacing him for his first league outing of the campaign.

There is also a first start for new signing Kasey Palmer, who came off the bench at Ipswich Town last week. The Chelsea loanee comes in for Dominic Samuel, who misses out on the squad with a knock.

Other than that, it's the same side that started at Portman Road last weekend, with Danny Graham continuing to lead the line.

Fellow Geordie striker Adam Armstrong, who arrived from Newcastle United earlier in the week, begins his permanent Ewood stay with a spot on the bench.

Our visitors from London include ex-Rover Ryan Tunnicliffe in their squad, with the midfielder available off the bench for Neil Harris.

Experienced double act Lee Gregory and skipper Steve Morison will both lead the line for The Lions in East Lancashire today.

Kick-off at Ewood is at 3pm, and if you can't make the game, you can follow all the action across our social media channels or listen to iFollow Rovers for exclusive commentary.
