All you need to know about Saturday's opponents

Bristol Rovers return to league action this Saturday as they take on AFC Telford in Vanarama Conference Premier action at the New Bucks Head Stadium.

Opposition: AFC Telford currently occupy bottom spot in the Vanarama Conference table having gathered only 10 points in their 17 games so far this season. Things may have potentially become more difficult for the Bucks having recently sold their top goal scorer. However, it isn't all doom and gloom for Telford, they will join Rovers in the first round of this seasons FA Cup following a 3-0 victoy over Spennymoor Town in their replay Tuesday night.

Dangerman - Tony Gray :
Gray is now the clubs top scorer following the departure of Michael Phenix to League One Barnsley last week. Tony has had spells at clubs including Southport and Droylsden. The Bucks paid a nominal fee to sign Tony from Chester, for whom he scored 11 times as the Blues won promotion to the Conference Premier. This season the Telford front man has netted four times for the conference strugglers and will be looking to add to that with Rovers coming into town.

Darrell’s View: “They had a good win to get into the next round of the FA Cup, so they’ll be on a high also.

Anyone on the day can win the football match, there are always upsets and Telford will fancy their chances.

It’s a tough league and the bottom teams can beat the top teams as we’ve seen throughout the season so far."

Team News: Daniel Leadbitter serves the second match of his three game suspention following his red card against Forest Green.

Last Meeting: Both these sides have already met this season at the Memorial Stadium back in August with Ollie Clarke's 30-yard wonder strike securing all three points for the boys in blue and white.
