Flying winger Harry Chapman is the latest Rovers player to be closing in on a first team return, as the physio's room begins to empty.

After a spell which saw plenty of personnel on the treatment table, things are looking brighter for boss Tony Mowbray, as he prepares his squad for a huge final 11 games.

And after confirming that midfield duo Peter Whittingham and Ben Gladwin are getting closer to a return to first team action, further good news was told by the boss afterwards regarding Middlesbrough loanee Chapman.

“He’s good, we hope that he’ll be back here full-time within the next week to 10 days," the boss revealed. "He’s just about ready to start training after doing most of his rehab at Middlesbrough.

"I’m hoping he’ll be back on the grass soon, and we’ll assess how much he has to do after that.

“Just to have him around the place is good, he’s a chirpy lad and the other players love him. I think if we can get him back, get him on the bench to start with, he can be a game-changer for us.

"It will be great to have that if we can; bit-by-bit, he’ll get back up to speed."
