Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray is hoping to be able to welcome Bradley Dack back into his side for the clash with Brentford.

The midfielder sat out Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Reading after picking up a knee injury at the weekend.

Kasey Palmer is also set to return for Rovers, who’ve made an unbeaten start to their Championship campaign after promotion with three draws and a win.

But Mowbray is set to be without Adam Armstrong (ankle) and Dominic Samuel (knee) after both limped out of the clash with Reading and will both undergo scans.

Brentford are also unbeaten and sit fourth in the table, but have been dealt a blow as the Championship‘s top scorer Neal Maupay has been banned for their next three matches.

Maupay, who scored his fourth and fifth of the season in the 2-2 draw against Aston Villa, accepted a charge of violent conduct following a stamp on Villa’s John McGinn that was missed by the match officials.

Dean Smith named the same side for the fourth game in succession at Villa Park.

Nico Yennaris and Kamohelo Mokotjo will be pushing for starts after featuring from the bench against Villa.
