Tony Mowbray has revealed that Danny Graham and Harrison Reed are likely to be included in the travelling contingent for Tuesday night's trip to Swansea City.

Both players were replaced in the second half of Saturday's excellent victory over Leeds United, with Mowbray mentioning after the game that the pair were struggling with niggles.

Graham had an issue with his back, whilst Reed hobbled off with a groin injury against the Whites, but the boss believes both should be fine for the journey to South Wales.

“Generally we are looking okay - Danny and Harrison will train today. They had a light session yesterday with a cool down, stretching, getting looked at," Mowbray confirmed to iFollow Rovers.

“With a five hour coach trip, it won't be ideal for the hamstrings sitting for so long. We’ll have a look today, assess them and see who comes to Swansea with us.
“Whatever team we put out, whoever plays, we’ll still be competitive."
And continuing with Reed, the Rovers chief is thrilled with the impact from the Southampton loanee since he landed at Ewood Park back in August on a season-long deal from the Premier League side.
"We bring in loans to supplement the ground, add that craft, that speed, that quality," Mowbray added.
“Harrison came really as a versatile footballer who can play in central midfield, wide or at right back as cover for Ryan Nyambe.
“He’s forced his way in the starting XI through his work rate, through his athleticism, his tenacity. He’s evolved. We’re glad he’s here, he’s integrated fantastically well with the group. They like his personality and I hope he’s enjoying his football with us.
“We’ll check on him today for a final time and then decide if he’s fit enough to come to Swansea with us."
