Baldock has been sidelined since the summer with a calf injury, while Kayal broke a leg in the pre-season friendly with Atletico Madrid in early August.

They both played an hour in the 2-2 draw with Blackburn and Kayal netted with a powerful shot from the edge of the penalty area to make it 1-1.

Joe Nutall twice gave Blackburn the lead in the first half, before Rovers had Willem Tomlinson sent off for a foul on Jiri Skalak.
