Team news: Fulham v Rovers

Milestones for Bradley Dack and Adam Armstrong as Tony Mowbray makes a trio of changes

10 August 2019

Tony Mowbray has named three changes to his starting lineup for today's clash against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Charlie Mulgrew, Darragh Lenihan and Stewart Downing drop out, with Tosin Adarabioyo, Derrick Williams and Joe Rothwell coming into the side.

Mulgrew's departure to Wigan Athletic and an injury to Lenihan see Adarabioyo and Williams appear for the first time this season, with the former making his debut for the club after arriving from Manchester City.

Bradley Dack makes his 250th career league appearance today, whilst Adam Armstrong appears for the 50th time in Rovers colours since joining permanently.

There is no place in the squad for Greg Cunningham due to the Irishman's lack of training sessions with the squad. Ryan Nyambe is left out due to concussion.

Fulham include two ex-Rovers in their squad, with Tom Cairney taking the armband for the hosts and Harrison Reed - a deadline day arrival - on the bench.

Like Reed, fellow last day capture Bobby Decordova-Reid also is available as a substitute.

Kick-off today is at 3pm, with coverage available on both iFollow Rovers and our social media accounts.

Fulham: Betinelli, Odoi, Mawson, Johansen, Mitrovic, Cairney (c), Ream, Arter, Cavaleiro, Bryan, Knockaert.

Substitutes: Rodak, McDonald, Ayite, Decordova-Reid, Le Marchand, Reed, Christie.

Rovers: Walton, Bennett (c), Adarabioyo, Williams, Bell, Travis, Johnson, Rothwell, Dack, Armstrong, Gallagher.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Graham, Downing, Brereton, Evans, Platt, Buckley.
