All you need to know about tomorrow's opponents!

Bristol Rovers travel to Park View Road to play Welling United for the second time in 7 days.

Opposition: Saturday's opponents Welling United currently sit in 19th position in the Vanarama Conference Premier table with 25 points from their 23 games. Welling haven't played since last weekend's outing at the Mem but will be without their captain Jake Gallagher who was sent off last week. The Wings did appeal the decision, however the red card was upheld by the FA.

Dangerman - Charlie Penny: Penny joined Welling in the summer from Championship side Millwall and has had an indifferent start to life at Park View Road but has recently found the back of the net in the recent victories over Halifax and Braintree so he is a man in form. Penny didn't have a great game last weekend at the Memorial Stadium but did look the most lively of any Wings player.

Team News: Goalkeeping pair Steve Mildenhall and Will Puddy miss out through injury with emergency loan signing Fabian Spiess is available for selection.

Last Meeting: Due to the crazy fixture list, these two sides met just last weekend as a Nathan Blissett goal and a Matty Taylor penalty saw Rovers collect all three points.
