Blackburn Rovers team news as Tony Mowbray makes full debut against Birmingham City

Tony Mowbray has made three changes for his final Blackburn Rovers game. James Brown is making his full debut for the club after signing from League of Ireland side Drogheda in January.

Mowbray confirmed players on loan and those out of contract would not feature at St Andrew’s and he kept his word. None are in the starting lineup, with Darragh Lenihan named among the substitutes.

In total, that’s three changes for the side that lost 3-0 to Bournemouth last weekend. Brown, Daniel Ayala and Tayo Edun replace Lenihan, Jan Paul van Hecke and Joe Rothwell, all of whom could have played their last game for the club.

Thomas Kaminski starts in goal with Brown, Ayala, Scott Wharton and Harry Pickering in defense. Lewis Travis and John Buckley are joined by Edun in midfield.

The front three remain unchanged with Ryan Hedges, Ben Brereton Diaz and Sam Gallagher up front. As expected, Dilan Markanday and Jack Vale are among the replacements.

Blackburn Rover: Kaminsky; Brown, Ayala, Wharton, Pickering; Travis, Buckley Edun; Hurdles, Brereton Diaz, Gallagher.

Replacements: Eastham, Rankin-Costello, Dack, Lenihan, Dolan, Vale, Markanday.
