Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has made eight changes to his side for tonight's Capital One Cup clash with Carlisle United at Brunton Park.

Among those starting their first Rovers game tonight are Simon Eastwood, Tom Cairney, Chris Taylor and Yann Songo'o, who only received international clearance this afternoon.
Record signing Jordan Rhodes is left on the bench, with Tony Kane, Alex Marrow and Joshua King being the only men who retain their place in the starting XI against the League One outfit.
Blackburn: Eastwood, Kane, Songo'o, Givet, Morris, Taylor, Marrow, Cairney, Olsson, Dunn, King
