3 November 2017

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's side head to Meadow Lane to begin their Emirates FA Cup campaign on Friday evening. Rovers head into the game following both a victory and defeat over the past seven days.

Darrell Clarke's view

Opposition: Notts County are among the early pace-setters in SkyBet League Two this season. Kevin Nolan's side returned to the top of the table with a convincing 3-0 victory over Newport County at Meadow Lane last weekend.

Dangerman: Jorge Grant - Midfield

The midfielder has been a standout performer for the SkyBet League Two leaders this season, finding the net on ten occasions so far this campaign.

The twenty-two-year-old is on loan at Meadow Lane from Nottingham Forest, in what is his second spell on loan at Notts County, following a successful spell last season.

The midfielder scored a brace in his last outing against Newport County AFC last weekend and hit a purple patch back in September, scoring four goals in total and is the Magpies top-scorer this campaign and trails only Billy Kee of Accrington in the race to become the division's top scorer. 

Last Time Out: Rovers' last trip to Meadow Lane was a successful one, as two goals in seven minutes from both Cristian Montano and Lee Brown provided a victory back in March 2016.
