Furman missed last weekend's derby victory at Scunthorpe while away on international duty with South Africa.

The 24-year-old suffered a facial injury as the Bafana Bafana beat Central African Republic 2-0 in their World Cup qualifier in Cape Town. He was sent to hospital for scans, where he received the all clear.

Furman is still waiting for his first Rovers start since arriving from Oldham in mid-March.

New Zealander Cameron Howieson is also back from international duty. The on-loan Burnley midfielder is still waiting for his Rovers debut and he is expected to be among the substitutes at the Ricoh Arena.

Full-back Paul Quinn will be absent due to a family bereavement while midfielders Martin Woods (calf), Paul Keegan (thigh) and David Syers (ankle) all remain injured.
