Paul Dickov admitted he will consider delving into the transfer market after the blow of losing Nathan Tyson for two months.

Tyson has been ruled out for six to eight weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in the late stages of the cup win over Leeds United last Thursday.

With Andy Williams and Curtis Main the only fit recognised senior strikers and six games in the next three weeks, Rovers could look to bring in a reinforcement.

But Dickov is confident Williams and Main have what it takes to see Rovers through the difficult period.

“We will have a chat about it next week,” Dickov told the Star.

“But Willo [Williams] is looking a real threat and Curtis has got the bit between his teeth. “Nathan is going to be out for six to eight weeks. He did his hamstring towards the end of the game the other night.

“I’ve got to give him credit because he stayed on and took his penalty. It’s disappointing because he was looking really sharp. He was on the bench against Leeds with a view to starting him at Wigan because he knew we’d have a lot of space in behind.

“It gives someone else a chance. Andy got another game under his belt with us and Curtis came on and looked lively.”

Dickov confirmed Richard Chaplow will train on Monday after recovering from a groin strain.
