Rovers can announce that defensive pair Matty Platt and Sam Hart have returned to Ewood Park.

The duo have both spent the first six months of this season out on loan in League One, with Platt at near neighbours Accrington Stanley, and Hart at Rochdale.

Academy graduate Platt appeared five times in all competitions for Stanley, all in cup competitions, with his last appearance coming at the start of last month in the Checkatrade Trophy against Lincoln City.

Hart, who arrived at Rovers in the summer of 2017, spent the second half of last season at Spotland before linking up with Keith Hill's side again in the summer.

The former Liverpool left back appeared 13 times for Rochdale in all competitions this term, but hasn't played since Dale's defeat at Oxford United at the end of November.

Both will now join up with the rest of the squad as preparations continue for the weekend clash with Newcastle United in the FA Cup, although Hart is cup tied having played in the competition for Dale already this season.
