For the first time this season Tony Mowbray has named an unchanged starting XI for tonight's clash against Swansea City.

That means Elliott Bennett continues at right back and will hope to celebrate his 400th career appearance with the three points in South Wales.

Striker Danny Graham also starts against his former club having spent 18 months at the Liberty Stadium, appearing over 60 times during that time.

Bradley Dack appears in Rovers colours from the start for the 50th time as he looks to continue his fine form on the road in front of goal as the visitors go in search of a third consecutive victory.

There are also milestones for Charlie Mulgrew and Amari'i Bell. The skipper makes his 100th league start in English football, whilst Amari'i appears for the 200th time in his career.

For the host, ex-Rovers Martin Olsson and Matt Grimes both start. Olsson came through the youth ranks with us, whilst Grimes enjoyed a short stint at Ewood Park on loan from Swansea in 2016.

The game at the Liberty Stadium kicks off at 7.45pm and you can follow all the action on iFollow Rovers and via our social media channels.
