We take a quick look at today's opponents!

Bristol Rovers go into today's game looking to bounce back from Monday's loss to Carlisle United

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to secure a valuable three points against Crawley Town.

Team News: Stuart Sinclair looks likely to miss out with injury where as Tom Lockyer, Ellis Harrison and Oliver McBurnie all return from International duty.  

Darrell's View:”We didn't get the result we wanted on Monday, but that's gone now and we have to get back to winning ways against Crawley.

"We lost the game at their place so we know what they can do but we need the three points today."    

Opposition: Today's opponents Crawley Town sit in 16th place in the SkyBet League Two table with 47 points from their 39 games this season. Crawley were on a five game unbeaten streak until their game on Easter Monday where they lost 0-2 at home to the hands of Exeter City.    
Dangerman - Matt Harrold: The former Rovers man tops Town's goal scoring charts this season with 9 goals in all competitions. Harrold didn't hit the back of the net on his last outing but did score on Good Friday in Crawley's 2-2 draw with York City.    
Last Time Out: A Matty Taylor penalty couldn't rescue a point at the stadium after Rhys Murphy scored two goals in two first half minutes.
