Team News for Rovers v Barnet

Ian Atkins is likely to hand former Mansfield midfielder Craig Disley his second start of the season in tonights LDV Vans fixture against Barnet.

Disley has struggled to break into the Rovers first team following his free transfer move in the summer. The player initially failed to settle in the Bristol area following problems relocating from Nottinghamshire.

However, Disley has now moved in with Rovers' defender Craig Hinton, and Rovers Boss Atkins has indicated that Disley is now ready for first team action.

Former Real Madrid player Pedro Matias is likely to take Robbie Ryan's place at left wing back, and Liam Burns is expected to continue after an impressive debut.

Atkins biggest dilemma is in the forward line, he has to pick between Richard Walker who has not scored in four starts or Jamie Forrester, who scored as a sub on Saturday.

Ali Gibb and Stuart Campbell are likely to be rested again as they recover from knocks.

Probable Rovers Team:

Miller: Burns, Edwards, Anderson: Hinton, Trollope, Hunt, Disley, Matias: Forrester, Agogo.

SUBS: Ryan, Williams, Lescott, Walker, Thorpe or Haldane
