Evans set for return against the Royals

"Wednesday is the next game for us, another opportunity for three points and we'll go there as positive as we can"

11 February 2019

Tony Mowbray has revealed that midfielder Corry Evans is set to return to the side when Rovers travel to Reading on Wednesday night.

Evans missed the weekend clash against Bristol City at Ewood Park after picking up and injury at Brentford at the beginning of February.

And aside from Darragh Lenihan, Jacob Davenport, Ben Gladwin and Dominic Samuel, Mowbray has a full squad to choose from for the journey down to the Madejski Stadium.

"I think we'll have the same squad of 19 players who will be on duty," the boss revealed to iFollow Rovers.

"Let's see what the starting XI is, of course.

"We'll do some work on the training ground tomorrow and pick a team that we think can go to Reading and get the job done.

"We've gone through Saturday's game - the good bits and what we could have done better.

"It's a learning tool on a Monday, to break the game down and see where we can improve.

"Wednesday is the next game for us, another opportunity for three points and we'll go there as positive as we can."

Boosted by Evans' return, Mowbray admits that he made tinker with his team against the Royals, with a big battle against old club Middlesbrough on Sunday afternoon still to come.

"Corry will be on the bus, so that's a potential swap-around for this week," Tony added.

"I think we're at that stage of the season where there will be some rotation and yet I don't think it will create a weakness in the team.

"We've talked about bedding the likes of Ben Brereton into this team and at some stage he will be given opportunity to play some games and then he has to produce the goods.

"Joe Rothwell falls into that category as well, so we will be making some changes along the way and hopefully we can find positive results."
