Rovers take on Bury at the Mem this weekend looking for 3 points to boost their play off hopes.
Bury currently lie bottom of the form table.

Vital Quotes:Paul Trollope

‘The expectation’s on because we’re at home, Bury are in the bottom half of the table and we are expected to win, so we have to handle that and hopefully produce the type of football we did in the first 45 minutes against Orient.’

Bristol Rovers Team News:

Rovers could welcome back Craig Hinton from his facial injury. Aaron Lescott is definitely out so former Birmingham player Jon Bass could play his first game for 6 months. Trollope also has slight injury worries over James Hunt (Hamstring) and Stuart Campbell (Flu). Jamie Forrester is also in contention after recovering from a dead leg.

Player to watch: Sammy Igoe

The quality loan signing from Millwall is starting to look match fit, and could cause Bury plenty of problems.

Bury Team News:

Goalkeeper Anthony Williams has returned to Carlisle, so Aaron Grundy should return in goal. Jake Speight (groin), Tom Kennedy (hamstring) and Neil Edwards (shoulder) are all out. David Hannah has gained clearance from the Scottish FA and should make his debut.

Player to watch: David Hannah

David Hannah the new signing from St Johnstone will be keen to impress.

    Hi, Phil
    I am your City counterpart- best of luck today, should be a 3 point haul for your boys.
    Ignoring all the traditional and sometimes banal rivalry between our respective supporters, I genuinely like to see Rovers win except against City, how about exchanging articles, say on a monthly basis, on Robins from a Pirates/Gas angle and vice versa. No rush but let me know if you are interested.Cheers for now, Pete Tully.
