Blackburn vs Bradford - Mulgrew to be assessed ahead of Blackburn clash with Bradford

Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray will make a late call on the inclusion of captain Charlie Mulgrew as Rovers prepare for the visit of Bradford.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Mowbray said he would leave it “as late as possible” before making a decision on the defender, who played the entire match for Scotland in Hungary on Tuesday night.

Jayson Leutwiler, Derrick Williams, Darragh Lenihan and Corry Evans have all returned from international duty and resumed training with the rest of the Rovers squad.

Elsewhere for the League One title challengers, Ryan Nyambe remains a few weeks away from a comeback while loanee Harry Chapman (hamstring) is back at parent club Middlesbrough receiving treatment.

Bradford are boosted by the return of leading scorer Charlie Wyke.

The 14-goal striker has served a three-match suspension and he is expected to go straight back into the starting line-up.

Injury issues continue to hinder the Bantams’ play-off hopes. Matthew Lund (hamstring) will probably miss out once again while Ryan McGowan (knee) and Jake Reeves (groin) are both still absent.

Tyrell Robinson’s groin problem should keep him on the sidelines and Alex Jones is set to see a specialist about his ankle injury.
