Rovers boss Tony Mowbray says both Harrison Reed and Danny Graham's midweek involvement will be decided in the next 24 hours

Mowbray confirmed after the win against Leeds that the pair picked up slight knocks in the clash against Marcelo Bielsa's side.
 
Graham was replaced by Ben Brereton whilst Reed's afternoon was cut short as well in the second half.
 
So what's the diagnosis?
 
“We will assess everyone - Harrison was feeling his thigh and Danny felt his back a little bit at half time. But we’ll be ready to go again on Tuesday," the boss revealed to iFollow Rovers.
 
“We’ve reacted and rebounded from that defeat at Ewood against Sheffield United. The team reacted and even if we had lost today I’d have been talking about the fantastic effort and camaraderie against the best physical team in the division, who also have some very talented players.
 
“We matched them all over the pitch, created chances and asked questions of them. It was a pretty good performance and we had to dig in at time because they are a good side."
 
The next test comes on Tuesday night, and Mowbray believes the side should look forward to the trip to Wales prior to a return to familiar territory for the boss on Saturday at West Bromwich Albion.
 
“We have to keep going, don’t we? We have two massive games coming up against sides who were in the Premier League last season. We will get the balance between rest and study.
 
“Swansea have the best passing statistics in the league. It’ll be a tough test but it is one we’ll be ready for."
