Tosin Adarabioyo is a slight injury doubt ahead of this weekend’s trip to Reading.

The giant defender, who is on a season-long loan at Ewood Park from Manchester City, was replaced after 63 minutes on his return to the team in the victory over Millwall last weekend.

The 21-year-old, who was part of a back three that day, had missed Rovers’ previous six games in league and cup with a thigh injury.

Adarabioyo returned to training on Thursday and Mowbray expects him to be on the bus to Reading this weekend.

“The injuries are alright,” said the manager in his pre-match press conference.

“Tosin was back on the grass and trained today. Let’s wait and see how he is.

“If there’s no reaction, then he’ll travel to Reading with us.

“We have to be careful with Tosin and make sure that we don’t keep getting him injured through wanting to play every game.

“We have to make sure he’s right, but he came through training alright today. Training is training and a game is a game of course, so we’ll see how he is tomorrow.”

Rovers remain without Ben Brereton, who is set for a spell on the sidelines following knee surgery, whilst Dominic Samuel, Jacob Davenport, Harry Chapman and Sam Hart are all expected to feature for Rovers Under-23s against Tottenham Hotspur at Leyland on Monday night.
