Rovers make just one change from the 4-0 win over Blackpool on Saturday, ahead of this evening's Checkatrade Trophy semi-final against Sunderland at the Mem.
Having already represented Coventry City in this competition earlier in the season, Abu Ogogo is ineligible and therefore is replaced by Stuart Sinclair, for his first start since New Year's Day against Burton Albion.
