A quick look at today's opponents

Bristol Rovers go into today's game looking to record their first home win of the season.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to secure another three points following back to back wins against Yeovil and Luton respectively.

Team News: The game might come too soon for Mark McChrystal, Lee Mansell and Will Puddy.

Darrell's View:”We've got two positive results but that is over and done with now and we need to get off the mark at the Mem.

"We know what Barnet will bring, they had a good result on Tuesday night so will be really up for it."

Opposition: Barnet currently occupy 15th place in League Two having picked up three points from their opening three games. The Bee's did however end Northampton's 100% start to the campaign with a 2-0 at the Hive.
Dangerman - John Akinde: Last season's League top goal scorer got off the mark on Tuesday night against Northampton from the spot, stroking down the middle after Jason Taylor saw red for fouling him.
Akinde then rounded the keeper to slot home in the final minute to double his tally for the season.

Last Time Out: Rovers pegged points back on table topping Barnet at the Mem last season as Angelo Balanta's late header secured all three points for Darrell Clarke's men.

Tickets: Supporters can still purchase tickets on the gate this afternoon.
