MATCH PREVIEW: MANSFIELD TOWN

12 March 2016

Bristol Rovers go into today's game looking to build on the three positive results already this month.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to secure a valuable three points against Mansfield Town

Team News: Stuart Sinclair, Liam Lawrence and Rory Gaffney look likely to miss out with injury.

Darrell's View:”They are all tough games, it was really difficult at their place where we snatched it late through Matty Taylor but it was a good performance and we have to put in a performance of the same level this afternoon."   

Opposition: Today's opponents Mansfield Town currently sit in 10th place in the Sky Bet League Two table with 51 points from their 35 games this season. The Stags have been struggling for consistency recently only picking up one win in their last five games where they beat the leagues bottom side [Dagenham & Redbridge] 3-2.   
                  
Dangerman - Matt Green: The Stags front man signed a new deal with the club in the summer, in what became his second spell with the club. Overall, Green scored 57 goals during his first spell at the club and has stated his intentions to become the clubs all-time top scorer during the next few years. Green then joined Birmingham City two years ago and scored two goals in a dozen appearances, before he was sidelined by an injury.            
 
Last Time Out: Matty Taylor's 97th minute header secured all three points for Rovers back in October in a game that had three goals and three red cards.
