Manager Darrell Clarke has changed both shape and formation for this afternoon’s match.
He has opted to go with a 3-5-2 formation and recalls Daniel Leadbitter and Ollie Clarke to the side at the expense of Dave Martin and Adam Cunnington.
The manager said that Cunnington has been suffering from a slight groin strain and that three games in a week might aggravate the situation.
Leadbitter slots in at right wing back, Clarke comes into midfield while Andy Monkhouse partners Matty Taylor up front.
