Team news: Rovers v Swansea City

One change has been made to the starting XI for the final game of the season

5 May 2019

Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has named one change to his starting lineup for the final game of the season against Swansea City at Ewood Park.

The alteration sees Corry Evans return to the team in place of Jack Rodwell, who isn't included in Mowbray's squad against the Swans.

There's a first spot in the squad for midfielder Jacob Davenport, who could make his debut should he appear in the game.

Another on the bench is Craig Conway, who will make his 200th appearance in Rovers colours should he emerge from the dugout to play a part in the encounter today.

Harry Chapman could also make his first senior appearance back at Ewood since returning to the club in January. He appeared as a substitute at Norwich City last weekend and could to similar today.

Swansea include in form frontman Oli McBurnie in their starting XI. The striker has five goals in his last six games and 23 in total so far this season.

Highly-rated Daniel James is left out of the squad, but former Rover Matt Grimes - who won Swansea's Player of the Year award earlier in the week - does start.
