Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has selected an experienced starting lineup for our second pre-season friendly of the summer at Port Vale.

Mainstays from our promotion-winning season in the form of Elliott Bennett, Darragh Lenihan, Charlie Mulgrew, Derrick Williams, Richie Smallwood, Corry Evans, Bradley Dack, Dominic Samuel and Craig Conway all selected in the XI at Vale Park.

They are joined by young pair Andy Fisher, who starts in goal, and Lewis Travis, who once again gets game time from the start in the Potteries.

There is no Jayson Leutwiler and Danny Graham in today's squad, with the duo picking up slight knocks in training earlier in the week.

Hosts Vale include a number of new signings to their side, with Scott Brown starting in goal whilst ex-Aldershot man Manny Oyeleke and former Carlisle man Luke Joyce both start in midfield.

Kick-off against the Staffordshire side is at 12.30pm and you can follow all the action via our social media channels.
