Charlie Mulgrew's fate will be decided tonight as Tony Mowbray begins to fit the pieces of his jigsaw together ahead of the visit of Rotherham United on Saturday.

Like David Raya, Mulgrew had to be taken off against West Bromwich Albion a couple of weeks ago and hasn't played since due to a rib injury.
 
But with another scan tonight, the boss is hopeful that the Scotland international will be good to go come 3pm on Saturday.
 
“Charlie joined in with training today but didn’t join in fully. He has another scan tonight and if the specialists are happy with him then he’ll play," Mowbray revealed.
 
“The medical department are erring on the side of caution. The people who spent so many years of their life to become specialist are telling us that you have to err on the side of caution.
 
“Charlie is desperate to play but we have to bow to people much cleverer than us who are even above the physiotherapy department at this club."
 
And Mowbray adds that Mulgrew and Raya aren't the only doubts ahead of the game against the Yorkshire side.
 
“We’re keeping our fingers crossed on a few and I don’t really want to mention the problems we have as it could open up avenues for our opponents for Saturday.
 
“If the team is a little different on Saturday then it is down to injuries. But the team could be exactly the same as QPR as the doubts end up coming through."
