Tony Mowbray has revealed that Rovers will be without two midfielders for Saturday's clash against Norwich City at Ewood Park.
Craig Conway hobbled off with a muscle injury last weekend against Birmingham, whilst Elliott Bennett has missed the last couple of outings due to a foot injury.
And the boss has said the pair are likely to not feature against the Canaries on Saturday afternoon.
“I don’t think Elliott is going to make it. I don’t think Craig is going to make it either, unfortunately for them and us," Mowbray told iFollow Rovers.
“We have a tough spell of five games in 15 days and I’m sure they will play a part in some of those games.
“Somebody else will get an opportunity in their absence. Everybody needs to be ready for this spell and to make an impact, just like Adam Armstrong did against Birmingham after coming off the bench.
“The lads who have been on the fringes in recent weeks and months have to be ready. We’ll utilise the squad and they all know the game plans and how we’ll go about each game."
