PREVIEW: FOREST GREEN ROVERS

2 May 2015

A quick look at tomorrow's opponents!

Bristol Rovers go into tonight's fixture looking to build on their 0-1 win over Forest Green on Wednesday.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to secure passage to Wembley and the Play-Off Final on the 17th May.

Team News: Only Jermaine Easter and Neal Trotman are long term absentees for the fixture.

Darrell's View: "We will go there in a confident mood but at the same time having respect for Forest Green because they've got very good players that can hurt you.

"They've been in the top five all season so it is going to be a very tough task but we will be going into the game looking forward to the challenge.  

Opposition: Forest Green Rovers go into the game a goal down and will need to score at least twice at the Mem to win the game within the 90 minutes.   
 
Dangerman - Jon Parkin: The journeyman forward failed to hit the back of the net on Wednesday night but he is Forest Green's top goal scorer this season with 25 goals in the league with the most recent coming against away at Gateshead two weeks ago where the striker scored a brace with the second coming from the penalty spot.   

Last Time Out: 10 man Rovers went the distance and kept a clean sheet after Matty Taylor's 17th minute strike opened the scoring.
