Preview: Leicester City U23s v Rovers U23s

A look ahead to tonight's clash against The Foxes at the King Power Stadium

19 August 2019

Rovers return to action in Premier League 2 this evening with a trip to the King Power Stadium to tackle Leicester City.

Rovers will be aiming to get back on track after suffering an opening day defeat to Arsenal at Leyland last week, whilst Leicester drew 0-0 away at Everton.

Tom White could return from injury to feature against The Foxes, whilst senior duo Harry Chapman and Sam Hart could also play a part in the encounter.

Chapman has found game time hard to come by so far this season, whilst Hart has been out of action since picking up a hamstring injury against Bury in the penultimate pre-season friendly of the summer.

Having missed last week's encounter against Arsenal at Leyland, Andy Fisher could return to the side in place of youngster Jordan Eastham.

The call could also arrive for Joe Grayson and Matty Platt to get a run-out, with the young defensive duo starting the Carabao Cup victory over Oldham Athletic last week.

The hosts could include Poland international Bartosz Kapustka in their team, whilst Callum Wright - a former Rovers Academy graduate - is likely to be a part of the home side's squad.

Kick-off this evening at the King Power is at 7pm and we will be covering the game across our social media channels.
