Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has made two changes for the trip to Walsall's Banks's Stadium.

Amari'i Bell and Bradley Dack both miss out on the starting XI, with Amari'i on the bench and Bradley out altogether through illness.

Coming into the side to replace the pair are Ryan Nyambe and Jack Payne, who both appeared off the bench in the last outing against Bury on Monday.

Paul Caddis and Joe Nuttall both return to the squad, both being on the bench.

Striker Danny Graham, who bagged a brace in the reverse fixture against the Saddlers at Ewood Park, needs one goal to reach 150 career goals and starts for Rovers in the Midlands.

Walsall, who are on a four-match unbeaten run, make one change from their team who started the 0-0 draw against Gillingham last week, with Justin Shaibu coming in for Amadou Bakayoko.

Walsall: Roberts, Edwards, Leahy, Dobson, Guthrie, Devlin, Chambers (c), Oztumer, Morris, Shaibu, Fitzwater.

Substitutes: Cuvelier, Kinsella, Flanagan, Ngoy, Roberts, Kouhyar, Gillespie.

Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Williams, Evans, Smallwood, Bennett, Payne, Armstrong, Graham.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Samuel, Caddis, Bell, Antonsson, Downing, Nuttall.
