Stuart Gray is ready for the challenge of taking on in-from Blackburn on their own patch on Saturday.
Rovers have forced their way into the play-off positions after nine Championship games without defeat but Gray, buoyed by Saturday’s home win over Wigan, said: “We don’t fear anyone on our travels as we are performing very well away from home.”
Looking at the opposition, Gray said: “One thing we do know is that we’ve got to keep Jordan Rhodes quiet – and Ben Marshall is playing out of his skin at the moment.
“We need to nullify the service to Gestede up front and keep Rhodes out of the penalty box as much as possible.”
Although Joe Mattock is fit to return, replacement Jeremy Helan is likely to keep his place after some outstanding displays.
With Jose Semedo suspended, Gray has an option to move Helan into midfield but seems more likely to bring in Kieran Lee or Jacques Maghoma and leave Helan at left back.
