Santos in for Richards


Bristol Rovers

Manager John Ward makes one change to his starting lineup for this afternoon’s game against Rochdale at Spotland.

Alefe Santos comes into the side in place of Eliot Richards who is still suffering the effects of the knock he took at Boxing Day down at Torquay. Although not 100% fit, he takes his place on the bench.

Clarkson will move out to the left of midfield, with Santos taking his place on the right.

The home side include former Rovers loanee Matt Lund in their lineup as they look for their second home win of the holiday period following their 3-0 victory against Mansfield Town on Boxing Day.

Rovers: Steve Mildenhall, Michael Smith, Tom Parkes, Mark McChrystal, Lee Brown, David Clarkson, Ollie Clarke, Ollie Norburn, John-Joe O’Toole, Matt Harrold, Alefe Santos.

Substitutes: Jim Paterson, Eliot Richards, Ellis Harrison, Mitch Harding, Chris Beardsley, Conor Gough, Tom Lockyer

Rochdale: Josh Lillis, Joe Rafferty, Peter Cavanagh, Oliver Lancashire, Peter Vincenti, Scott Hogan, Matthew Lund, Jack O’Connell, Michael Rose, Graham Cummins, Ian Henderson

Substitutes: Rhys Bennett, Ashley Eastman, George Donnelly, Bastien Henry, Matt Done, Robbie Thomson, Jamie Allen


Referee: Darren Drysdale
