ROVERS MAKE THREE CHANGES FOR COVENTRY ENCOUNTER

25 March 2017

Rovers make three changes to take on the Sky Blues at the Ricoh Arena

Manager Darrell Clarke has named three changes to the side that defeated Chesterfield last Saturday, with James Clarke, Stuart Sinclair and Jonny Burn included in the starting XI for today's SkyBet League One fixture against Coventry.

Jonny Burn replaces Ryan Sweeney, who is on international duty, as the centre-back pairs skipper Tom Lockyer in the heart of the Rovers defence, while James Clarke makes a return to the starting line-up at the expense of Daniel Leadbitter. Stuart Sinclair is available after serving his one-match suspension last weekend, with the midfielder replacing Cristian Montano for the game at the Ricoh Arena.

In the middle, the man in charge of today's game is Graham Horwood, who is assisted by David Plowright and Nigel Smith.

Rovers: Joe Lumley (G), Lee Brown, Jonny Burn, Tom Lockyer (C), James Clarke, Chris Lines, Ollie Clarke, Billy Bodin, Stuart Sinclair, Luke James, Rory Gaffney.

Substitutes: Steve Mildenhall (G), Cristian Montano, Byron Moore, Jermaine Easter, Lee Mansell, Daniel Leadbitter, Robert Harris.
