Before Rovers’ matchup against Swansea City, Jon Dahl Tomasson will need to make some selections.
Having just returned from the midweek match with West Bromwich Albion, Joe Rankin-Costello is questionable.
A calf issue is expected to keep Scott Wharton out of action for up to three weeks in that game when he was substituted at halftime.
The recent returns of Callum Brittain and Dom Hyam, who are also in contention to return to the team following their recent layoffs, is good news for Tomasson.
During halftime, Hyam came back onto the field after a month away. He replaced Wharton.
Brittain returned from injury last weekend against Watford, and when Rankin-Costello withdrew, he played the last period against West Brom.
Daniel Ayala is also available again after missing the previous three games due to a foot issue.
Tomasson added, “Scott Wharton is out, Joe (Rankin-Costello), let’s see if he can play.”
He has consistently performed well as a full right defender and a midfielder when the ball is in his hands in those half gaps. It has been incredibly advantageous.
“I believe he has grown significantly during the last several months.
“Ayala has resumed operations.
“Of course, we keep an eye on every player in the match. There are now five games in 15 days, so it’s just about this time, but there could be guys who need a break.
“We are keeping an eye on each player and preparing them for the next games, not just one.
I have friendly chats with players about keeping an eye on the workload throughout practice and competition.
Sam Szmodics, after suffering an ankle injury in the last minutes against West Brom, can participate.
Adam Wharton, who had an ankle ligament injury, has returned to training. He can still not play for the first team after playing for 60 minutes for the Under-21s last week.
“He’s been out; he spent some time in a boot.
“We’re building him up gradually, but he needs gaming experience.
He is not yet prepared for the first team.
The Rovers Under-21s head to Brighton on Monday night for a match.
When asked whether the young midfielder may get a chance, Tomasson said, “I need to choose about Monday or if we play an internal game on Wednesday since we play on Tuesday against Blackpool and then have a few days before QPR on Saturday.
I need to decide on that since it would be simple for me to leave everyone behind and engage in an internal game.
