Norway winger King (thigh) and Scotland international Rhodes (groin) were unavailable for their countries in midweek yet have been back training with Rovers along with Scott Dann (groin).
Dann could assume the captain's armband once more as fellow centre-back Grant Hanley begins a three-game ban for his dismissal against Wigan while the clash is likely to come too soon for long-serving midfielder David Dunn (knee).
Northern Ireland international Corry Evans will definitely miss out, though, as he awaits the results from a scan on an ankle injury he sustained on international duty yet midfielder Dickson Etuhu (knee) and striker DJ Campbell (ankle) are nearing returns.
