Rovers with near clean bill of health

Rovers with near clean bill of health

Cometh the hour, cometh the return of previously injured and suspended players.

With a crunch match against Birmingham on the horizon it would appear beneficial to have plenty of choice as to who to turn to.

So with that introduction comes good news, news that Morten Gamst Pedersen is back from the injury that kept him away from the pitch against Arsenal and Gael Givet is also back from his two match suspension picked up for the ruck after the final whistle in the daylight robbery against Fulham.

So bar the injuries to Vince Grella (heart attack) and Keith Andrews (less so) and the first match in a three match ban for Steve N'Zonzi Rovers have got basically everyone back into the mix.

David Dunn and Phil Jones are completely injury free and Roque Sanat Cruz has gone a whole week without picking up a niggle.

A sign that our luck is in?

Rovers can pick from - Robinson, Bunn, Givet, Salgado, Emerton, Samba, Nelsen, Hanley, Phil Jones, Jermaine Jones, Olsson, Hoilett, Dunn, Formica, Rochina, Pedersen, Diouf, Santa Cruz, Benjani, Roberts and.... wait for it... Kalinic.

very interesting to see if givet goes back in the team. Does that mean olsson goes further up the pitch, and hoillet goes out right?

I think we need Givet back as Olsson can then push forward, The only two doubts for me are a) Who starts up front and b) Who out of Morten and Emerton replaces N'Zonzi...

Please, please play Kalanic. Even for the 1st hour and then bring on Santa Cruz or Roberts to hold the ball up and keep our 2 goals lead.....again fingers crossed. We need our top scorer on the pitch please.

Good to have Givet back, Not usre if he will bring him straight back in after the performance at Arsenal, Would prefer him to replace N'Zonzi with another stiker personally

Givet to LB, Hoilett right midfield, Gamst in the middle in place of the Zonz, Kalinic instead of Rocque

Time to start picking the points up. Surely the bad spell must be over and Santa Cruz will finally get on the score sheet tomorrow. I would rather see Olsson moved up to the left wing and Givet slotting in at left back but I think after the Arsenal game Kean might decide otherwise and just replace N'Zonzi with Pedersen. Hope his tactics aren't negative for this one.
