Rovers boss ready for the U's

13 October 2017

Bristol Rovers boss Darrell Clarke is looking for his side to carry on the good work as they welcome the U's on Saturday.

The Pirates secured their best away win this century with a  6-0 win at Northampton last weekend and, like the U's are looking for a third straight league win.

“It’s about building on things and putting some results together, we’ve won three out of the last four." Clarke told the Bristol Post

“It’s a tough competitive league, you’ve only got to look at the table and realise there are only two or three teams who have got consistency, the rest are there or thereabouts.”

“It can happen in this league. If you’re not at it you can quickly find yourself suffering a heavy defeat, so you’ve got to get back into the zone. With this group we don’t rest on our laurels, I don’t allow that. We move on quickly from a defeat and a win as well.”

Rovers are likely to be without top scorer Billy Bodin after he suffered a hamstring injury last weekend but there are familiar faces in their line-up with former U's Sam Slocombe and Liam Sercombe both in the side. Another former United man, defender James Clarke, is out until Christmas through injury.
