MATCH PREVIEW: BARNET

9 January 2016

We take a quick look at today's opponents!

Bristol Rovers go into today's game looking to continue the good form the side showed in December and against Luton Town.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to make it two wins against Barnet for the season following a 3-1 win at the Mem earlier this season.

Team News: Injuries to Will Puddy looks like the clubs only absentee.

Darrell's View:”We started the year well against Luton after a good December but we can't just stay still we need to keep progressing.

"We beat Barnet earlier in the season but that counts for nothing now and they are going to give us a very tough game."

Opposition: Today's opponents Barnet sit in 18th place in the Sky Bet League Two table having collected 28 points from their 25 games so far this season. Barnet have been struggling in their last two outings conceding five goals against Cambridge (2-1) and Northampton (3-0) but last seasons Conference champions will still provide a tough test.                
 
Dangerman - John Akinde: Last seasons Conference top goal scorer also tops the clubs scoring charts this season with 11 goals.           
 
Last Time Out: Rovers secured their third win in a row back in August thanks to goals from Lee Brown, Jermaine Easter and Matty Taylor.
