Samba and Hoilett return as Rochina ready

Samba and Hoilett return as Rochina ready

Good news on the injury front as Rovers welcome back Chris Samba and Junior Hoilett into the match day squad for the trip to London to face Fulham tomorrow.

Junior and Kong both missed the defeat to Aston Villa 7 days ago but have both trained in the last few days and are ready to help arrest an alarming slide in Rovers form.

Further positive news comes in the form of the inclusion of the match day squad of Ruben Rochina who is set to make the bench.

Mauro Formica has had a slight hamstring strain this week so is being protected with a view to unleashing him against Blackpool in two weeks time so isn't be considered for selection.

The game tomorrow comes too early for Phil Jones and Dave Dunn (shock) and Roque Santa Cruz is a slight doubt with injury (even bigger shock) and has only been able to train from yesterday.

Either way as long as the midfield trio come 2.30 pm tomorrow doesn't read 'K.Andrews, V.Grella and J.Jones' then I don't think anyone minds!

I hope that team sheet has Holiett on one wing and Olsson on the other, Givet left back and samba + Hanley in the centre. Don't mind if it's Kalinic or Santa Crock up front as long as they have support from another striker or attacking midfielder and not left stranded up on their own again. After the last few games and lack of goals i would be tempted to throw Rochina straight in from the off. Come on Kean pull your finger out and don't disappoint again!!
