Tony Mowbray has provided an injury update on Rovers trio Ryan Nyambe, Charlie Mulgrew and Danny Graham - and it's mixed news.

Nyambe was forced off during the first half, while Mulgrew had to have his head bandaged after the break, before Graham was helped off just before full-time.

Asked about the condition of the three players after the game, Mowbray said: “I’ve just seen Danny, he’s been lying on the bed in the dressing room.

"I think he managed to pop a rib out of place but it’s popped back in.

"He took a whack on the side and as he’s stretched it’s gone back in and the pain has gone straight away.

"He’s laughing with the lads in the dressing room, so hopefully he’ll be fine. We’ll let it settle down and hopefully he’s not sore in a day or two.

"Charlie will need a few stitches and Nyambe’s injury is the disappointment for us, it looks like his hamstring.

"He took a knock in the last game and missed a few days, so maybe a sprint early on has done his hamstring – he’ll be a loss for us."

Mowbray believes Elliott Bennett - who has played in a number of positions this season - could be an option at right-back in Nyambe's absence. 

“Bennett is an option for us, he’s such a flexible footballer. He can play wide left, wide right, right-back or centrally, as we’ve seen.

"We’ll have to have a look at that, because Caddis and Travis are also in the building, of course – we’ll have to decide.

"I’ll start preparing for Gillingham tomorrow and we’ll have to decide how best to utilise Elliott’s qualities.”
