We take a quick look at tomorrow's opponents!

Bristol Rovers go into tomorrow's Emirates FA Cup First Round tie looking to swiftly advance into the Second Round past League Two side Crawley Town.

Team News: Rovers have a fully fit squad to choose from heading into the game.

Darrell's View:"We have got a lot of respect for Crawley and I think that Dermot Drummy has done a good job after joining them at a difficult time and we are expecting a tough battle on Saturday."

"I know that our FA Cup record hasn't been fantastic since I have been at the club, but we will give it a right good go on Saturday and we won't prepare any differently and we will travel to Crawley looking to get a positive result that is for sure."

Opposition: Tomorrow's opponents Crawley Town currently sit in 10th place in the SkyBet League Two table having collected 20 points from their 15 fixtures this season. Last time out Dermot Drummy's men suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of unbeaten Carlisle United.
Dangerman - James Collins: The experienced forward has five league goals to his name so far this season and has scored in both of Crawley's Checkatrade Trophy fixtures, taking him to a tally of seven goals for the season.

Last season Collins was part of the Northampton Town side that won promotion from Sky Bet League Two and joined Crawley Town on a free transfer in the summer.

Last Time Out: Darrell Clarke's men ran out 3-0 winners against the Reds at the Memorial Stadium back in April thanks to a lovely Liam Lawrence free kick and a brace from Matty Taylor..
