Tony Mowbray has named three changes to his starting XI for today's home clash against Bolton Wanderers at Ewood Park.

Ryan Nyambe, Jack Rodwell and Ben Brereton come in in place of Elliott Bennett, Corry Evans and Danny Graham.

Evans is left out of the squad having played for just over an hour at Queens Park Rangers on Good Friday, with Rodwell making his first start since early March at Rotherham United.

Brereton is expected to lead the line in place of Graham, with an attacking trio of Adam Armstrong, Joe Rothwell and Bradley Dack in support.

Jayson Leutwiler keeps his place and starts in goal, with David Raya named as a substitute.

For Bolton, former Rover Jason Lowe misses out on a return to Ewood Park due to injury, but the Whites do make the trip armed with experience, with Andrew Taylor, Mark Beevers and Jack Hobbs all starting.

Erhun Oztumer, who played on both occasions against Rovers for Walsall last season, starts on the bench.
