Better news on the injury front

Tosin Adarabioyo, Jacob Davenport and Dominic Samuel are back in contention

12 September 2019

Tony Mowbray has revealed that Rovers' injury list is getting shorter, with the two week international break allowing those with knocks to recover.

Tosin Adarabioyo hasn't featured since the second game of the season at Fulham, but the boss says that the Manchester City loanee is all fixed up ahead of this weekend's clash with Millwall.

Jacob Davenport picked up an injury in pre-season and is yet to play this term, but he too is back in full training, whilst there's good news regarding Dominic Samuel.

“There have been bigger numbers training with us this week," Mowbray said to iFollow Rovers ahead of the visit of The Lions.

Tosin is back on the grass, Dominic Samuel has scored a few goals and is back on the grass, Jacob Davenport’s back on the grass.

“The numbers are good, the squad is looking full and deep, and I have some tough decisions to make this weekend."

One definite absentee will be Ben Brereton, who has a small procedure on a knee injury picked up towards the end of August.

And Mowbray believes the frontman will be out of action for a little while.

“We’re told that it’s gone well for Ben," he added when discussing the surgery on the 20-year-old.

"He’ll be out for between six to eight weeks after having his operation, which is a frustration for us all.

“It’s part and parcel of football, but it’s frustrating. Hopefully he’ll come back stronger.

“You have to be philosophical on injuries because they do happen in this game.”
