Rovers could be short on defenders for the game on Friday against Oldham.

James O’Connor has been struggling with a groin injury but will hopefully be able to take part. Gareth Roberts is a more serious doubt after missing the Scunthorpe match with a knee injury.

Adam Lockwood has had treatment on a back injury and is back in training and will be hoping the injury does not flare back up.

Jan Budtz has an injured toe although should be ok to play whilst Alan Blayney works on his fitness.

James Coppinger is also a big doubt for the game with a groin injury.Mark McCammon has an ankle injury and will miss out.

Youngster Adam Brown has a serious knee injury after colliding with a goal post in training and will be out of the game for a number of months.

Sean O’Driscoll may ask other players to be flexible to cover any positions hit by injury.
