Rovers boss Tony Mowbray won’t name his side until he’s assessed his squad following the long trip south.

Mowbray admits there are players carrying knocks heading into game number seven since the re-start which could affect his line-up at Millwall tomorrow night.

Rovers have named the same side for the last two matches, in which they’ve collected four points, but Mowbray has hinted at changes for the New Den trip.

But the fitness of his squad, as well as the impact of his substitutes against West Brom, will affect the manager’s thinking, as well as knowing that Rovers must come away with three points if they’re to have any lingering hopes of a top six finish.

Joe Rothwell, Lewis Holtby and Sam Gallagher will all be hoping their performances off the bench will earn them a recall, with Mowbray also considering a possible change in formation against Millwall’s 3-5-2.

“Selection is always difficult, the games are coming thick and fast and like everyone we have a few players who are a bit tight, a bit sore, are we going to risk them or can we get them through 90 minutes? We have all of those dilemmas,” he explained.

“I won’t even announce the team until we’ve seen how everyone is after the long journey down to London and pick the team before the game.”

The unchanged team, and bench, named for the West Brom game at the weekend was the first time Mowbray has done that in nine matches.

And he added: “I’ve never been one to keep the same team, I try and look at the opposition, assess where we are.

“I’ve talked in the past that if you’re Man City and Liverpool you don’t worry about the opposition, let them worry about you, but in this league every team has to be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the opposition.

“I look at the opposition see where we can find an advantage, hurt them, and try and sell that to the players. The difficulty at the moment is the lack of time between games to try and find a game-plan that you put on the pitch, work on it on the training ground and make it happen on matchday.”

Millwall’s win at Hull over the weekend moved them up to ninth, two points and three places above Rovers, in the bid to hunt down sixth-placed Cardiff.

Both will have just two more league games left after tonight to secure sixth-spot, and Mowbray said: “We’ll go to Millwall and try and attack the game, three points is what we need to keep things moving along and see where it takes us.

“Our ambition is, as theirs will be, is to win. They’re in a similar boat, we need to win to keep things moving along. It should be a good game, we know what to expect but we’ll try and impose our game on them and see how we get on.”
