Rochina set for sub role
Ruben Rochina may have to settle for a place on the bench as he steps up his recovery from a hamstring tear.
Rovers' Spanish playmaker made his first appearance of the season as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 win against Leicester on Saturday and he was instrumental in setting up Morten Gamst Pedersen's winner.
Pedersen is in line for his second consecutive start alongside Nuno Gomes - who scored the opener on Saturday - with manager Steve Kean praising the efforts of both against the Foxes.
Gomes' claim for a starting spot is likely to hinge on the availability of Colin Kazim-Richards, who remains a doubt with a knee complaint which kept him out of action at the weekend.
Leon Best (knee) is a long-term absentee.
