Ryan Nyambe could be back in action for Rovers in their midweek game with Watford.

That’s after receiving good news on the hamstring injury that forced the 23-year-old off in the weekend defeat at Nottingham Forest.

Nyambe picked up the injury in the closing stages of the 1-0 defeat, with Tony Mowbray fearing the Namibia international faced ‘months out’.

However, scans have revealed the injury was owing to muscle fatigue, and there are hopes he could be back in action for the visit of Watford on Wednesday.

Nyambe had been left out of the squad for the defeat at Barnsley, but was back in the side at the City Ground as part of a re-shuffled back four with Darragh Lenihan sidelined by a rib injury.

Rovers are yet to learn how long the central defender will be out for, while left back Barry Douglas is also nursing a knock that meant the Leeds United was only on the bench against Nottingham Forest.

An update from the club said: “Ryan Nyambe, who won Rovers' penalty before limping off during the closing stages of the game at The City Ground with a hamstring problem, could be fit to face the high-flying Hornets at Ewood Park this Wednesday night.”
