Jason Roberts Back In Contention For Saturday

Jason Roberts Back In Contention For Saturday

Jason Roberts is set to boost the ranks this weekend with a timely return.

The Lancashire Telegraph is reporting that J-Rob should be good to go this weekend with Samba being moved back into the defence after being forced to play as an emergency striker in recent weeks.

Roberts has been out of action with a stress fracture to his foot since the dramatic win over Spurs a month ago and Rovers have missed his presence and pace up front.

This looks like a great boost for everyone at Rovers as we look for the win that would more or less guarantee safety.

I feel good, der der der der....
