The Polish goalkeeper, 23, came on for injured number one Jake Kean (knee) against Cardiff on Easter Monday, conceding two late goals in a 3-0 defeat.

Cartilage damage means Kean is sidelined for the season along with former England international Paul Robinson, who is facing six months on the sidelines after complications during back surgery resulted in a blood clot in the lung.

Midfielder Lee Williamson and forward duo Josh King and Nuno Gomes missed out in the Welsh capital due to illness but are back in contention.

The Olsson twins, Martin and Markus, are closing in on a return to fitness from their respective ankle and hamstring complaints but the trip to Hillsborough will come too soon.

On-loan QPR striker DJ Campbell is back with his parent club receiving treatment as he recovers from a broken metatarsal, while Adam Henley (hamstring), Bradley Orr (ribs) and Dickson Etuhu (knee) remain out.

Rovers and Wednesday have 47 points apiece, with only goal difference keeping them out of the bottom three.
