We take a quick look at today's opponents!

Bristol Rovers go into today's game looking to pick up their first win in four games.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to build on last weeks draw with Plymouth Argyle as they take on second placed Portsmouth at the Memorial Stadium.

Team News: The game might come too soon for Will Puddy and Daniel Leadbitter.

Darrell's View:”Every team we play will be a tough test, Portsmouth have had a good start but we have the opportunity to put a stop to that.

"We also have the opportunity to get another win in front of our home fans which is what they deserve."

Opposition: Pompy currently occupy second position in SkyBet League Two following an unbeaten start to the season. Last time out Adam McGurk's long range effort secured a point for Paul Cook's men after Liam Sercombe 33rd minute goal game Oxford United the lead.
Dangerman - Adam McGurk: The former Burton Albion man arrived at Fratton Park after leaving the Pirelli Stadium in June 2015. He netted seven goals in 41 appearances the previous season – including one against Pompey – to help the Brewers lift the League Two title. The Northern Irishman has found the back of the net three times already this season including a goal in each of his last two outings against Oxford United and Barnet respectively.
Last Time Out: A Matt Harrold brace wasn't enough to come away from Fratton Park with all three points as goals from Adam Webster, Danny Hollands and Wes Fogden secured all three points for Pompy back in April 2014.  

Tickets: This afternoon's game at the Mem is NOT ALL TICKET for home supporters and Gasheads can pay on the day.
