Bristol Rovers £6.3m squad market value as Aston Villa & Everton men valued - gallery

John Marquis netted the winning penalty on Friday against the Addicks and then Joey Barton got one over his former club as Lewis Gibson netted his first professional goal before Grant Ward netted a cross-hit shot to beat Celtic legend Scott Brown.
A target of 52 points was set at the start of the season, and with seven games remaining they are just one point off of that. Transfer talks and contract extensions were put on hold until survival was secured but now discussions can soon start to begin about next season.
Several loan players will return to their parent clubs, and other than Gibson who is out of contract in the summer but would command a compensation fee, returning would be unlikely. Gibson has been given the captain's armband over the last few matches and he has forged a good partnership with James Connolly in the absence of Liverpool defender Jarell Quansah, who serves the final match of his suspension this weekend.
A reliance on loan players makes planning for next season difficult because not all clubs release their players early, and Rovers have had to wait until the end of the window at times. Five players will leave for sure in the summer and return to Premier League and Championship clubs, but what about the players who remain? Player sales seem unlikely but Aaron Collins has had a brilliant season and may have attracted some suitors.
