Football - Rovers return for Cairney

Tom Cairney is expected to bolster Blackburn's midfield options at Millwall.

PA Sport Report

An ankle injury has kept Cairney out of Rovers' last six matches yet, with a full week of training behind him, boss Gary Bowyer is keeping his fingers crossed that he can feature at the Den.

Loanee Liam Feeney is unable to play against his parent club but Jason Lowe (ankle) should be okay after training on Thursday and Friday. Captain Grant Hanley could also come back into the starting XI after being an unused substitute in the 3-3 draw with Watford following his hamstring problem.

Winger Josh King, whose latest problem was a back spasm, is expected to return but full-back Adam Henley (ankle) is unlikely to play again this term. Ben Marshall also has a long-term ankle problem but the wide-man is pencilled in to do some light running again this Monday.
