Team news: Rovers v Hull City

The boss has named an unchanged team for today's clash against the Tigers at Ewood Park

26 January 2019

Tony Mowbray has named an unchanged lineup for today's clash against in form Hull City at Ewood Park.

That means Jack Rodwell continues to partner Darragh Lenihan at the heart of the Rovers defence, with the team aiming for a third successive clean sheet.

David Raya makes his 100th league start in goal, whilst Amari'i Bell continues in the left back spot.

Charlie Mulgrew remains out of action with a hamstring injury picked up at Newcastle United at the start of the month, but Mowbray is boosted by Derrick Williams' return to the squad; the Irishman takes up a spot as a substitute.

For Hull, former Rovers loanee Todd Kane starts, whilst the in form Jarrod Bowen, who has 10 goals in his last nine games, is named in the starting lineup despite reportedly being a doubt for today's clash.

He'll likely line up on the right of an attacking three, whilst Poland international Kamil Grosicki is expected to take a place on the left flank.

New signing Mark Pugh, a former Burnley man, takes his place on the bench after arriving from AFC Bournemouth earlier this week.
