Thomas Kaminski will be back training tomorrow after his period of quarantine – with a late decision expected on whether he will feature against Luton Town.

Should he not, then Tony Mowbray has confirmed that Aynsley Pears has overcome his bout of illness and will travel with the squad.

Kaminski tested positive for Covid-19 last week while away on international duty with Belgium after being called up to the national team for the second successive month.

That required the 28-year-old to first self-isolate in Belgium, but he is now back in East Lancashire.

He, along with the whole Rovers squad, underwent Covid-testing this morning, as without mandatory testing in the EFL, clubs are tested at the end of each international break.

Kaminski, who has kept four clean sheets in his eight Rovers appearances so far, shook off a groin problem that saw him miss three matches to return for the 3-1 win over QPR, only to test positive for coronavirus two days later.

Back-up goalkeeper Pears’ run of three consecutive starts ended with Kaminski’s return, but also coincided with him suffering with illness that saw him not included in the matchday 18.

Pears will travel with the squad, and would start should Kaminski not make it, but Lewis Holtby is doubtful, despite training, on his return from illness.

On Kaminski, Mowbray said: “He’s not back from quarantine yet but the hope is that he will train tomorrow.

“What we’ve found is that footballers come back after their 10 or 14 days and they think they’re going to come back in and off they go.

“But they generally come to me and say to me ‘gaffer, I don’t feel quite right’.

“So I have to give them time.

“Have we had a bad Covid effect? I think so. Worse than a lot of clubs? It looks like it. Is the north west a big area for Covid? The stats suggest so. Has our club been hit? Yes it has.

“Kaminski, where did he get it? He was 100 per cent in the last game against QPR. He’s a top goalkeeper for us.

“Then, within two days, he’s got a positive test. If he had been tested before he went, would he have had a positive test? I don’t know the answer to that.

“That’s the grey area. How often do you test footballers who might be asymptomatic but might have Covid? But because they’re young, fit, strong, and you don’t see anything.

“He goes away and then he’s positive.

“He’ll have been in early this morning, had a test, gone back home and we hope that it’ll be negative so he can come and train tomorrow.

“After he’s been on the grass we’ll then decide whether he’s mentally right to play. I can’t tell you whether he’s going to play or not.”

Pears could be in line for a quicker than expected return to the side should Kaminski be kept out. He put in a man-of-the-match display in the 0-0 draw with former side Middlesbrough, but has been absent since through illness.

Asked of his availability, Mowbray said: “He’s back in training.

“He will be travelling with the team so if Kaminski isn’t right then we have a senior goalkeeper, one we feel is more than capability of doing the job.”
