Thomas was in-and-out of Joey Barton’s team last season but was a highly thought of figure after changing the managers perception.

Thomas assisted Josh Benson for their goal against Derby after starting the match in the ten role. James Norwood who was a reported target in the summer could also line up against Rovers.

Summer signing Nicky Cadden is touch and go for selection but both Michael Helik and Herbie Kane remain sidelined.
