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.
