Tony Mowbray has made four changes to his starling lineup for tonight's home league game against Brentford at Ewood Park.

Ryan Nyambe, Stewart Downing, Corry Evans and Danny Graham all return to the team, with Elliott Bennett, Amari'i Bell, Lewis Holtby and Sam Gallagher all dropping out.

The former three all are included on the bench, but Gallagher drops out of the squad after picking up an injury in the weekend win over Barnsley.

Graham goes in search of his 50th league goal in blue-and-white, whilst Joe Rothwell makes his 150th club career appearance.

Rovers Academy graduate David Raya starts for the visitors in goal after moving to Brentford in the summer after over 100 games for us.

Ex-Leeds defender Pontus Jansson skippers the Londoners at Ewood Park whilst the highly-rated pair of Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins start in the attack.

Thomas Frank has made two changes to his team from the one that defeated Reading at the weekend, with Christian Norgaard and Jan Zumbarek coming into the XI at the expense of Bryan Mbeumo and Josh Dasilva.

Rovers go in search of a third successive home victory and a second successive home triumph over The Bees following the 1-0 win here last term.
