Skipper touch and go for Lions clash

Tony Mowbray is hopeful that Charlie Mulgrew will be fine for the trip to south London

11 January 2019

Tony Mowbray is hopeful that Charlie Mulgrew will be fit and available for selection for Saturday's game against Millwall.

The Rovers captain carried a knock in the final stages of last weekend's draw at Newcastle United, with Mowbray fearful regarding the injury.

But almost a week on, the boss admits that the Scotland international could play a part at The Den for Saturday's teatime kick-off.

“I hope Charlie will be alright. He didn't train on Thursday, to give himself the best chance of being available for the weekend," Mowbray told iFollow Rovers.

“He's been kicking a ball around, so we'll have to wait and see with Charlie. He has every chance of being available, and let's hope he makes it.

“With total respect to Charlie, he's not an Adam Armstrong. He's not a fast player, where you sometimes seen a hamstring injury rupture rather than just a sligh strain, so if he does have a knock, it won't be for very long. I think it's more fatigue with him.

“We have a few knocks and niggles, as every club does. We have a few players who didn't train on Thursday, but will train today. We'll have a look and see what team is available to us."
