MATCH PREVIEW: BRISTOL ROVERS vs NORTHAMPTON TOWN

6 January 2017

Bristol Rovers go into this weekend's game looking to pick up their first three points of 2017. 

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be aiming to continue their fantastic home form from 2016. 

Team News: Rovers are without Peter Hartley who is the only long term injury at the club. 

Darrell's View:”I'm looking for a reaction following Monday's defeat, we need to put in a good performance in front of our home supporters.

"Northampton obviously won the league last season in League Two, but we have managed to get six points ahead of them this campaign so far, which is good. 

"For me, the teams that were promoted to League One last season have more than held their own this season and we expect a tough game on Saturday." 

Opposition: Tomorrow's opponents Northampton Town currently sit in 16th place in the SkyBet League One table with 30 points from their 25 games this season. Rob Page's men are coming off the back of a difficult festive period, after securing three points against Oxford United on Boxing Day, the Cobblers have suffered back to back losses at the hands of Sheffield United and Bradford City in their last two fixtures. 
                   
Dangerman - Alex Revell: The experienced forward is Northampton's top goalscorer this season, with nine goals to name in all competitions. 


A product of the Cambridge United academy, Revell joined Northampton Town during pre-season and scored his first goal for the Cobblers in their 1-1 draw against Charlton

  
Last Time Out: Charlie Collkett's injury time strike secured all three points for Darrell Clarke's side at Sixfields back in October.
