Team news ahead of Brentford fixture

I think everyone has come through the game, trained quite well, so I expect them all to be available.

"We’ve got Brock and Shane Lowry back from illness, they’ve been out for a while," said Rowett.

"David Cotterill is probably not going to make it for this weekend, nor Neal Eardley or Koby Arthur, but they are not far away.

"They’re out training with the physios and hopefully they might be available for the FA Cup game, but certainly for this weekend we’re probably going to have to do without those three.

"I think everyone has come through the game, trained quite well, so I expect them all to be available."

One player who Rowett has no concerns about is Demarai Gray. Gray was among the substitutes in Monday's win over MK Dons and Rowett says that his decision was just a precaution with Gray struggling with a migraine.

"I think with the fact we played two games I wanted to get fresh legs out wide," Rowett added.

"I think our wingers and our forward players tend to do the most high intensity running in our games, because of the way we play.

"I felt we needed some freshness and Demarai had a migraine the day before and woke up still feeling a bit rough.

"He did that the day before Hull away and I played him and he was a little bit below par.

"We had to take him off early in that game.

"I just felt we’d have better impact if we needed him from the bench later in the game.

"As it was we didn’t really need it, but he still came on and probably should have got us a second goal."
