Darrell Clarke is forced into one change to the side set to face Doncaster Rovers, with skipper Tom Lockyer missing out through a knock he picked up last weekend.
In his place is Ryan Sweeney, who is restored to the line-up after being named amongst the substitutes against Bradford City, with Rollin Menayese consequently taking his spot on the bench.
