Rovers are only two points clear of the relegation zone, but they will be buoyed by the return of Colin Kazim-Richards after a spell on the sidelines.
The Turkish international came on as a second-half substitute in the 1-1 draw against Blackpool, his first appearance in more than a month, after suffering an injury in the Ewood clash against Leeds at the end of February.
A previously lengthy injury list has cleared up, with Josh King and Leon Best also now in contention following lay-offs.
Rovers go into the game on a run of eight games without a win, which includes three successive away defeats, and they are up against the league leaders who recorded a 4-1 victory at Ewood in December.
