Rovers host MK Dons this Saturday at the Mem in SkyBet League One.

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

Darrell's View: "MK Dons have some very talented players. We are under no illusions and it will be very tough game."

"Our home form and been pretty strong for a considerable amount of time, so will try and take that into Saturday's game."

Opposition: MK Dons currently sit in the relegation places in SkyBet League One in 21st position.

The Dons haven't won in the league since October 1st when they defeated Oldham Athletic. 
Dangerman - Dean Bowditch: An experienced Football League striker, the thirty-year-old forward is the Don's joint leading goalscorer so far this campaign, with seven goals in all competitions.

After starting out as a trainee at Ipswich, various loan moves allowed the forward to gain exposure to League football, with temporary moves to Wycombe, Brighton, Northampton, and Brentford.

It was during a two-season spell at Yeovil where the forward managed to kick-start his career, scoring twenty-five goals during his stay at Huish Park, a goal return that caught the attention of MK Dons.

The striker signed for the Dons in June 2011 and has since made over one-hundred-and-fifty appearances, scoring just shy of forty goals for the club.

Bowditch's last goal game in MK Dons 1-1 draw with Walsall last Saturday.

Last Time Out: The sides last met at the Mem back in 2011, when a Sean O'Hanlon goal after just 45 seconds helped MK Dons to a 2-1 victory.
Daniel Powell sliced through the centre of the home defence to make it 2-0 after 61 minutes.

Jeff Hughes netted a consolation goal from the penalty spot for Rovers with seven minutes remaining after Mathias Doumbe had handled a shot from Rene Howe.
