Tony Mowbray has provided an injury update head of Rovers' Championship clash against Sheffield United on Wednesday evening.

Charlie Mulgrew has been recovering from a calf injury, while Ryan Nyambe and Corry Evans were withdrawn during the draw against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the boss had positive news to share on Mulgrew and Evans, but confirmed that Nyambe will be unavailable tomorrow.

“The injury situation is okay at the minute," he said. "Ryan has a hamstring injury, but it doesn’t look like the worst hamstring injury in the world.

“I don’t think he’ll make the next two games [against Sheffield United and Bolton], but hopefully he’ll be pretty close by the end of the international break.

“Charlie is okay, he trained today, and so did Corry Evans.

"Corry’s was just a bit of tightness, really. We have to remember he’s had international games as well, so we gave him a break at Bournemouth."

Mowbray admits Nyambe's injury has left him with a selection headache ahead of the Blades' visit, but says there are options available to him.

"Ryan might not have been injured if we rested him at Bournemouth but right-back isn’t a position we’re particularly strong in, in terms of numbers," he added.

“Elliott Bennett is an option there and Harrison Reed played half a season at right-back for Norwich, so he’s an option as well.

"Playing three at the back is another option for us, of course, we can do that. I think it will be a pretty tactical game tomorrow, let's wait and see."
