PREVIEW: DARRELL ON SOUTHPORT

9 April 2015

The Manager takes a look at Saturday's opposition

First up in Bristol Rovers last three games of the 2014/15 campaign is Southport with Darrell expecting a difficult game out of the Conference Premier's 19th placed club.

"They [Southport] beat Dagenham & Redbridge in the FA Cup so it is pretty clear that they can raise themselves for big games and this Saturday is going to be a massive game.

"They were on an unbeaten run of six games before losing their last two games to Altrincham and Telford respectively so they have been on good form and know what it's like to put a run together.

"Their manager Paul [Carden] will get his side very organised and they will be relishing the challenge of playing in front of over 8,000 supporters.

"Every game we go into we are expected to win and we have had that all season long and I think we've dealt with that well the whole season so I think it puts us in a good position coming into these last three games.

Tickets for Rovers remaining fixtures at the Memorial Stadium are hot property right now and Darrell told us that the support that the Bristol Rovers faithful offer the course of the season has been second to none.

"It's been a very tough season for our supporters and they have backed us in huge numbers and we want them to do that on Saturday.

"When they come to home matches some of the fans seem tense and we want them to get behind the boys from the start and be the driving force in getting out of this league.
