Tony Mowbray has rung the changes for today's game against West Bromwich Albion - our first match of 2019.

Following defeat at Sheffield United just three days ago, Mowbray has recalled Amari'i Bell, Corry Evans, Bradley Dack, Adam Armstrong and Danny Graham.

Graham returns after being an unused substitute at Bramall Lane, and replaces Ben Brereton, who drops to the bench.

Also available as substitutes are Joe Rothwell and Kasey Palmer, who both started the game against the Blades last time out, whilst there is also a return to the squad for Craig Conway.

Joe Grayson is involved in the 18 in the league for the first time in his career, but Derrick Williams misses out on the squad altogether after picking up a slight strain.

For the Baggies, the experienced former England international Gareth Barry is named captain, whilst former Rovers loanee Rekeem Harper, who appeared a handful of times in the first half of last season, starts on the bench.

Darren Moore won an appeal against Jay Rodriguez's sending off last time out against Sheffield Wednesday, and the Burnley-born frontman will lead the line at Ewood Park.

Kick-off this afternoon is at 3pm and you can follow all the action via iFollow Rovers or across our social media channels.

Rovers: Raya, Bennett, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Bell, Evans, Travis, Reed, Dack, Armstrong, Graham.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Rothwell, Brereton, Downing, Conway, Grayson, Palmer.
