Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has made one change to the side from the last outing at Bristol City for the visit of Aston Villa.

That switch sees the return of Bradley Dack to the XI, with the Rovers star taking the place of Kasey Palmer, who drops to the bench.

Dack is back for the first time in almost a month having limped off after scoring the winner against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium on August 18th.

Amari'i Bell continues his run in the side at left back, despite Derrick Williams returning to full fitness, whilst Danny Graham will begin the game as the lone frontman.

For the visitors, Steve Bruce makes three changes with Glenn Whelan, Anwar El Ghazi and Jonathan Kodjia dropping to the bench. 

Neil Taylor, Tammy Abraham and Albert Adomah all come into the starting XI for the game at Ewood Park.

Kick-off is at 5.30pm and if you aren't at Ewood for the match then you can follow all the action via our social media accounts or by tuning into iFollow Rovers.
