Tony Mowbray has revealed that the extent of Charlie Mulgrew's injury isn't as serious as first feared.
The Rovers captain limped off in the early stages of Saturday's 1-1 draw against Northampton and had a scan on his ankle on Monday afternoon.
Asked to provide an update on the defender following Tuesday's 3-1 win over Walsall, Mowbray said: “Charlie is hoping to play a week on Saturday.
"I think there’s very little swelling and the scan is good. He wants to be back as soon as he can, so we’re very hopeful.
He’s desperate to play every game and we’re hoping it’s as short as 10 days to two weeks but let’s see. You soon know with an ankle how strong it is.
“Harry Chapman was here tonight as well which was great for the lads, they loved having him in the dressing room. He’s our player until the end of the season.
“The spirit is good and confidence is important in football. We’ve got a big match at Plymouth now, they’ve been on a decent run, so let’s see how we go at the weekend.”
