Samba sidelined for Trotters test

Midfielder David Dunn, who has been out for the last four weeks

with a calf injury, is fit again, and is poised for at least a

place on the bench. Fellow midfielder Vince Grella is closing in on

a return after being sidelined since November with a thigh problem.

However, Yildiray Basturk is unlikely to figure as he is still

short of match fitness following his transfer window move from

Stuttgart. Kick-off is at 12pm. Rovers (from): Robinson, Jacobsen,

Olsson, Chimbonda, Nelsen, Givet, Salgado, Pedersen, Grella,

Nzonzi, Hoilett, Andrews, Emerton, Di Santo, Diouf, Kalinic, Jones,

Brown, Reid, Roberts, Basturk.
