The Arsenal loanee has been out of action since January when he suffered a hamstring injury. He returned to his parent club to complete his recovery.

And he is set to return to Rovers for the final few weeks of the campaign, looking to add to the three goals he has netted so far this term.

“Tyreece should be back with us on April 12 and then we’ll take it from there,” Butler told the Free Press.

“Using Arsenal’s guidance we’ll manage him but he will be like a new player for us and a key player as well.

“I think we’ll have to manage him for the first week or so in training but then we’ll be able to set him free.

“Hopefully he can do a job for us. He’s a big player for us and the quality he has got is exceptional for his age.

“We’re hoping for six or seven games out of him and that’s the run in as well so it’ll be great for him to be back with us.”

Butler revealed Joe Wright is set to be cleared to face Charlton Athletic on Friday after being withdrawn with a hamstring injury against MK Dons last weekend.

He said: “Joe Wright is fine. He had a twinge on his hamstring on Thursday.

“He’s been for a scan and it just seems to be a bit of fatigue on his hamstring.

“He should be okay for Friday’s game.”
