Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has made four changes to his starting XI for today's game against Birmingham City at St Andrew's.

Two of those alterations come in the back four, with Ryan Nyambe and Amari'i Bell both coming in to start in the full back areas.

Bell is in against his old club for the suspended Derrick Williams, who sits out for the first of two games following his dismissal against Middlesbrough last weekend.

Further forward, Lewis Travis will partner Richie Smallwood, whilst Harrison Reed and Elliott Bennett will take their spots in the wide areas behind Danny Graham.

David Raya makes his 100th senior start for the club, looking to celebrate with a clean sheet and the three points.

Former Rover Connor Mahoney is on the bench for the hosts, who have potent front duo Che Adams and Lukas Jutkiewicz leading the line.

The experienced Lee Camp starts in goal, whilst scheming playmaker Jota will float behind the front two.
