We take a quick look at tomorrow's opponents

Bristol Rovers go into tomorrow's game looking to get their first win having returned to League One.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to secure three points against Scunthorpe United.  

Team News: Rovers have a full fit squad going into the opening game of the season.  

Darrell's View:”It's important to get off to a good start but it's going to be a very difficult game up at Scunthorpe.

"We know we have our jobs to do in every area of the pitch and if we win those individual battles we will stand ourselves in great stead to get all three points."

Opposition: Tomorrow's opposition Scunthorpe United finished last season in 7th place in SkyBet League One with 74 points from their 46 games, however Graham Alexander's men finished the season strong with six wins in a row, finishing the season 0-2 win at Sheffield United. 
Dangerman - Paddy Madden: The former Yeovil Town man was the Iron's top goal scorer last season netting 23 times in his 52 appearances but is currently nursing an injury and seems doubtful for tomorrow's season opener.      
Last Time Out: Steven Gillespie's late goal cancelled out Sam Winnall's first half goal at Glanford Park back in 2014.          

Tickets: Tomorrow's game is pay on the day for traveling supporters.
