The veteran defender joined Rovers this week on loan from Sky Bet Championship rivals Watford and the 36-year-old is likely to be involved on Saturday. Should he be included from the start at centre-half it would allow Paul Quinn to revert to his usual right-back slot, meaning James Coppinger could lose his place in the team.
However, manager Paul Dickov, who has no new problems following the midweek defeat at Burnley, may still use Coppinger in his regular midfield role.
Gabriel Tamas has resumed training following surgery on his fractured cheekbone and may be back in contention next week when he is due to have a protective mask fitted.
