PREVIEW: DARRELL ON ALDERSHOT

19 March 2015

The Rovers boss takes a look at this tomorrow's opposition

Rovers face Aldershot under the lights tomorrow night and Darrell Clarke is expecting another tough game.

"As a full time club, Aldershot have underachieved massively this season but I think they can dangerous opposition on the night.

"They went to Portsmouth in the FA Cup and got a great result so it is definitely not a game that we can take lightly.

"They've got some good experienced players but I am hoping that the Mem is going to be bouncing and we can put in a performance to really get the fans going.

The Shots have been on a good run of late which was ended in their last game, losing 1-2 at home to Southport and Darrell thinks that they still could be looking over their shoulder.

"They are still 8 or 9 points ahead of the relegation zone so I think they will be more or less safe from relegation.

"I don't think they will be taking the game lightly because they could still be looking over their shoulder.

"Any opposition we play against, a lot of players and teams raise their games because it's Bristol Rovers and that is something that we have had to deal with all season.

"It is something that I think as a squad of players we have dealt with it all very well and will have to continue that until the end of the season.

"I don't think there is a team that we have played this season that hasn't raised their game. I've been out to see a lot of games so far this season and the level of performance against us is a lot higher.

"With these 7 games to go, we are still in with a chance of wining the title but we need the three points tomorrow night.
