Bristol Rovers v Cheltenham Town team news - as six players out and one doubt

Injury news at the Memorial Stadium ahead of Matt Taylor's first league game in the dugout as Bristol Rovers new manager.

Bristol Rovers will host Cheltenham Town in League One this weekend in what will be Matt Taylor's first league game in charge of the Gas.

Rovers come into the match off the back of an EFL Trophy exit away at Crawley Town in what was Taylor's first game as boss. The Gas lost 2-1 despite taking the lead through Luke Thomas, who was subsequently replaced at half-time. As for the Robins, they currently sit at the foot of the League One table and were beaten 2-1 last match away at Charlton Athletic, with former striker Alfie May haunting his old club scoring a brace of penalties almost a fortnight ago.

The Gas are winless in their last three games and drew 1-1 at home to Leyton Orient in what was former interim manager Andy Mangan's last match in charge. Taylor will be desperate to get the better over the club he formerly played for on Saturday, however Gasheads will know that this weekend won't be straight forward as former Rovers legendary boss Darrell Clarke is back in town.

Clarke has certainly turned things around for the Gloucestershire side and has steered his new outfit to 11 points in the League One table since his introduction.

Here's all the latest team news for the Gas as they take on the Robins...
