Team news: Rovers v Stoke City

Tony Mowbray has named three changes for today's clash against the Potters at Ewood Park

6 April 2019

Tony Mowbray has made three changes to his starting lineup for today's home clash against Stoke City at Ewood Park.

Corry Evans and Richie Smallwood come in for Lewis Travis and Craig Conway, whilst Joe Rothwell earns a start in place of Bradley Dack.

Evans returns from injury, which kept him out of last weekend's game at Aston Villa, whilst Smallwood starts after being an unused substitute in the last three outings.

For the visitors, England international Jack Butland is in goal, whilst Tom Ince - son of former Rovers boss, Paul - starts on the wing.

The experienced centre back pairing of Ryan Shawcross and Bruno Martins Indi are tasked with dealing with frontman Danny Graham, who scored against the Potters in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.

Kick-off this afternoon is at 3pm and you can follow all the action via iFollow Rovers or across our social media channels.

Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Bell, Smallwood, Evans, Bennett, Rothwell, Armstrong, Graham.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, D. Williams, Reed, Rodwell, Brereton, Travis, Conway.
