Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has opted for an unchanged lineup to the side that beat Shrewsbury last week for the trip to Fleetwood Town in League One.

This is the first time this season that Mowbray has opted to go with what worked so well for him in the last game.

New signing - from today's hosts - Amari'i Bell, wasn't registered in time to play a part against his former side, but fellow recent capture Jack Payne starts his Rovers career on the bench.

Hosts Fleetwood make six changes to the side that were knocked out of the FA Cup to Leicester City in midweek.

By our reckoning, the home outfit will play a 4-3-3 formation, with new signing Paddy Madden and Wes Burns playing either side of Devante Cole up front.

Fleetwood: Neal, Coyle, Eastham, Dempsey, Bolger (c), Schwabl, Diagouraga, Madden, Jones, Burns, Cole.

Substitutes: Cairns, Pond, Hiwula, McAleny, Rodger, Glendon, Hunter.

Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Downing, Mulgrew (c), Williams, Smallwood, Bennett, Samuel, Conway, Dack, Graham

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Ward, Caddis, Travis, Payne, Armstrong, Nuttall.
