Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has decisions to make this weekend, but he isn't too worried, even though he admits he needs to ensure the camp remains a happy one.

Aside from long-term absentees Ben Gladwin and Dominic Samuel, and the soon-to-be-returning Ryan Nyambe and Jacob Davenport, Mowbray has a full squad to choose from.
 
And he has touched on the process of selecting a team and discusses the trials and tribulations of leaving out some star names.
 
“Having a selection headache is both good and bad. We have tough choices on players who work so hard during the week but then find themselves left out of the squad on a Saturday," he said.
 
“We want everyone to feel a part of what we want to achieve. Everyone needs to keep themselves fit and ready. 
 
“I’ve been doing the job for 15 years and it’s always hard. You have a bond and a relationship with every player, but you have hard decisions to make.
 
“That’s my job. Some people find they can’t do that, but I like my players and just have to pick a team. The rest have to be really positive in their attitude and their training."
