Blackburn Rovers vs Stoke City - Sam Gallagher pushing for a start as Blackburn face Stoke

Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray has no new injury concerns ahead of his side’s Ewood Park clash with Stoke.

Sam Gallagher is likely to be pushing for a starting place after recovering from a groin strain to make the bench for Saturday’s draw at Brentford.

Joe Rankin-Costello could also be pushing to feature after making a good recovery from a hamstring injury.

Bradley Dack, Lewis Holtby and Corry Evans remain long-term absentees for Mowbray’s side.

Like Mowbray, Stoke boss Michael O’Neill has no new injury concerns as he looks to build on the 2-0 win over Cardiff.

Captain Ryan Shawcross is back in training but the game is expected to come too soon for him.

And James McClean, Thibaud Verlinden and Stephen Ward all remain sidelined for the Potters.

However there is better news for O’Neill as defender Liam Lindsay is set to return to the fray following his recent injury setback.
