Tony Mowbray has named two changes to the starting lineup for the clash against Sheffield United at Ewood Park tonight.

Paul Downing and Ryan Nyambe, who both started in the weekend draw against Nottingham Forest, are left out of the squad, with the latter due to injury.

Derrick Williams returns from suspension, whilst Adam Armstrong gets the nod from the start following his goalscoring cameo off the bench at the weekend against the Reds.

In Nyambe's absence, Elliott Bennett skippers the side and is likely to play in the right back position.

Regular captain Charlie Mulgrew is back having missed the last four games, and the Scotland centre back is available off the bench tonight.

The visitors include John Fleck in their starting side. The Glaswegian played under Tony Mowbray at Coventry City, whilst Ollie Norwood will partner him in midfield. The Brighton loanee is an international team-mate of Corry Evans with Northern Ireland.

Kick-off at Ewood Park is at 7.45pm and if you can't make it then you can follow all the action via iFollow Rovers and on our social channels.
