Darrell Clarke made four changes to the side to face AFC Wimbledon, including the return of Tom Lockyer.
The skipper reassumes the armband and position at centre half, replacing Tom Broadbent alongside Tony Craig.
Ellis Harrison also returns to the starting XI after his midweek knock, whilst Kyle Bennett also earns a start, meaning Rory Gaffney and Tom Nichols drop to the bench.
Marc Bola also comes into the side after Lee Brown came off early in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Rochdale.
