Blackburn could be without their two most experienced central defenders.

Chris Samba is doubtful with a groin injury while Ryan Nelsen, though back in training, is still feeling the after-effects of his knee operation.

New midfield signing Radosav Petrovic is unlikely to have received his visa in time to play.

Wolves striker Kevin Doyle is winning his battle to be fit .

Doyle withdrew from the Republic of Ireland squad for the midweek international against Croatia due to a knee injury, but Wolves boss Mick McCarthy believes he has a "70-30" chance of being available.

New skipper and summer signing Roger Johnson will make his competitive debut, but midfielders Dave Edwards (back) and Adlene Guedioura (ankle) miss out.

Rovers (from): Robinson, Bunn, Salgado, Givet, Hanley, Samba, Olsson, Emerton, Pedersen, Nzonzi, Dunn, Grella, Formica, Rochina, Hoilett, Roberts, Goodwillie, Blackman, Aley, Anderson, Henley.

Wolves (from): Hennessey, De Vries, Stearman, Zubar, Craddock, Johnson, Berra, Elokobi, Ward, Hunt, Hammill, Milijas, Henry, Kightly, O'Hara, Jarvis, Doyle, Fletcher, Ebanks-Blake, Keogh, Davis.
