Bristol Rovers report no new injuries for Scunthorpe clash

Bristol Rovers have no major new injury concerns ahead of their Sky Bet League One clash with promotion-chasing Scunthorpe.

Defender Joe Partington has not been ruled out despite being forced off early in last week's draw at Port Vale.

Defender Peter Hartley and forward Alfie Kilgour are the only two notable absentees, and both are long-term casualties.

Hartley is likely to be out for another five weeks with a foot problem while Kilgour is out for the season with a knee injury.

Scunthorpe will be without the suspended Harry Toffolo as they look to maintain their push for automatic promotion at Bristol Rovers.

Toffolo, who is on loan from Championship side Norwich, will serve a one-match ban after being sent off for two bookable offences in last week's 1-1 draw at Sheffield United.

Irons manager Graham Alexander believes Conor Townsend is the ideal replacement for Toffolo, with the defender set to make his first start since December.

Jordan Clarke could also feature in the squad after taking a full part in training this week, while Noel Burdett has returned to the club from his loan spell at Gainsborough.
