Joe Nuttall leads the line, as Rovers take on Accrington Stanley in the final pre-season friendly of the summer.

The 21-year-old striker scored the winner at Lincoln City six days ago and is again given the opportunity to impress by boss Tony Mowbray.

Summer signings Joe Rothwell and Jacob Davenport are also in the starting line-up, along with Derrick Williams, who missed Thursday's 3-0 victory over Everton with a slight knock.

Craig Conway, who captains the team, and Peter Whittingham provide experience, whilst Paul Caddis gets his first run-out of pre-season for the first team.  

Lewis Travis and Willem Tomlinson will also be hoping to catch the manager's eye, with the big Championship kick-off against Ipswich Town now just a week away.

Rovers: Leutwiler, Travis, Downing, Williams, Caddis, Davenport, Tomlinson, Whittingham, Conway (c), Rothwell, Nuttall.

Subs: Fisher, Platt, Evans, Hardcastle, Mols, Butterworth.
