All you need to know about tomorrow's game with Woking!

Bristol Rovers return to action this weekend as they travel to Kingfield Stadium to take on Woking.

Rovers: The men in blue and white are currently unbeaten in 10 away league games and will be looking to extend that positive form in tomorrow's fixture. Rovers currently sit in second place in the Vanarama Conference table just six points behind league leaders Barnet following a very successful festive period where the Gas took an impressive 13 points from their last 15 on offer.

Team News: Rovers only noticeable long term absentee Steve Mildenhall is back in training following the knee injury that he sustained away to Wrexham in early December and could be available for selection.

Darrell's View: “Woking are a good side with good players, I went to watch them the other day and they’ve got players that can hurt you.

“They’ve been going through a bit of a sticky patch but they won on Tuesday so I’m sure that will breed some confidence.

Opposition: Tomorrow's opponents Woking currently occupy 7th position in the Vanarama Conference table having had a poor festive period. The Cards only managed to collect 3 points from an available 15 over Christmas but have had positive draws with Eastleigh and Gateshead in their latest two fixtures.  

Dangerman - Ross Lafayette: Lafayette joined the Cards on Wednesday on loan from League Two side Luton Town for an initial month. The 29-year-old joined the Hatters last summer from Welling United, having scored 17 league goals for the Wings last season. Lafayette has made 14 appearances for Luton this season have come as a substitute and he is yet to score for the League Two club. The signing of Lafayette comes at a great time for Woking as 14 goal top goalscorer and former Rovers man Scott Rendell has missed out in manager Gary Hill's last two squads. 

Last Meeting: Goals from Adam Cunnington and Lee Mansell secured all three points for Darrell Clarke's men in the return fixture back in September and tomorrow's meeting at Kingfield Stadium will only be the second time that these two sides have met in a competitive fixture.
