Team news: Rovers v Cardiff City

There are two changes for today's game against The Bluebirds at Ewood Park

24 August 2019

Tony Mowbray has made two changes to his starting line-up for today's Championship encounter against Cardiff City at Ewood Park.

Amari'i Bell and Danny Graham are the pair who come into the side, in place of the ineligible Greg Cunningham and Adam Armstrong, who drops to the bench. Bell makes his 50th league appearance for Rovers today.

Richie Smallwood returns as a substitute in place of Corry Evans, whilst Joe Rankin-Costello also steps up to the bench for the first time this season.

The central defensive pair of Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams continue at the back as they aim to continue their run of back-to-back clean sheets, in front of Tuesday night's penalty hero Christian Walton.

City are unchanged from Wednesday night's late home victory over Huddersfield Town, with former Rover Junior Hoilett on the bench for The Bluebirds.

Kick-off today is at 3pm, and if you can't make it to Ewood then you can catch all the action on iFollow Rovers and our social media channels.
