Match Preview: Wigan Athletic vs Bristol Rovers

15 September 2017

Bristol Rovers will be looking to bounce back from Tuesday's defeat against Oldham Atheltic as they travel north to take on Wigan at the DW Stadium.

Rovers: Manager Darrell Clarke will be looking to bounce back from Tuesday's defeat and has goalkeeper Sam Slocombe available again following his suspension. 

Darrell's View: 

Dangerman - Nick Powell

Hugely talented former Manchester United and England Under 21 international forward [pictured above] with the ability to turn a game in an instant.

Powell re-joined Latics on a permanent three-year contract in July 2016 following the expiry of his deal at Manchester United – one of the intended marquee signings for the new Sky Bet Championship season.

Equally as comfortable in a midfield role or anywhere in the forward line, he has the talent to light up a game with a flash of brilliance.

The midfielder can pull the strings in midfield and chip in with goals and will be the Latics main threat to keep quiet at the DW Stadium.

Last Time Out: These two sides last faced each other back in 2001 where a Rovers side that included Nick Culkin, Vitalijs Astafjevs and Nathan Ellington drew 0-0 at the JJB Stadium.

Tickets: Supporters will be able to purchase tickets on the day at the DW Stadium.
