Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to get back to winning ways against Northampton Town this afternoon.

Team News: Rovers have a full squad to pick from with the exception of Matty Taylor who is touch and go with an injury and Jermaine Easter who is suspended.

Last Time Out: Late goals from Matty Taylor and Ellis Harrison secured a vital point against Northampton Town back in April on the day that Northampton got promoted to League One.
