'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rovers multiple fitness boost

Rovers are back in Championship action after the international break and head for Ashton Gate to face another tricky tie against Bristol City.

And on the injuries and doubts front it's all very much positive news with Rovers fears over several first teamers put to rest.

Gael Givet and Scott Dann are both back in the squad and fully fit after separate injury complaints picked up in the 3-3 draw with Leeds United two weeks prior.

We could also be potentially welcoming back Colin Kazim-Richards after a few absent games, the Turkish international is still rated as touch and go with his leg complaint but he is back in training alongside fellow potential returnee Martin Olsson.

The longer serving twin has been away with the Sweden national side and hasn't played a part for the club since last season but after a few weeks of full training could feature alongside his identical sibling.

So by and large it's good news with the manager having a pretty exhaustive list of players to pick from.

The manager is expected to select from - Robinson, Orr, Martin Olsson, Givet, Lowe, Fabio Nunes, Dunn, Formica, Rhodes, Pedersen, Murphy, Markus Olsson, Dann, Paulo Jorge, Etuhu, Edinho, Nuno Gomes, Rochina, Hanley, Ribeiro, Vukcevic, Kean, Kazim-Richards.

Feels good to be back in action even if we are likely to be moaning come tomorrow!!!

To be honest Mikey, I do see City winning this one; which will clearly put a downer on the rest of Saturday. But if reports are to be believed there could be mixed emotions...!

On the match, disappointed Kean doesn't seem to be considering the Olsson twins for the left side, instead it's either one or the other. I agree Markus has been great going forward but defensively he's a bit suspect positionally, despite he's match saving tackle against Diouf he was caught out several times with passes in behind him. For me, it has to be the Chelsea-monitored Martin for left back and Markus for wing, I like Peds but one up front requires at least one flying winger. Incidentally - can't believe muppet Kean is getting rid of Vukcevic! Infuriating. COYB (as I don't believe for a second that Kean will be sacked if we lose today. It's just papers trying to keep us unsettled!)
