Bristol Rovers vs Cheltenham Town live: Team news and updates from Papa John’s Trophy tie


Hello and welcome to today’s matchblog as everybody’s fourth-favourite competition begins at the Mem with the visit of a familiar foe for the Gas.

It was just 21 days ago when Michael Duff’s Cheltenham inflicted Rovers’ second defeat of the season on them via a 2-0 win in the Carabao Cup in the first game fans had attended at the Mem since March 2020.

Since that loss, Rovers have struggled through the month of August, beating Oldham and drawing with Barrow but suffering difficult defeats to Exeter and Stevenage and unease is growing in the stands.

A good result tonight probably won’t change that but it would do wonders for confidence and the general mood around the camp plus we should see a number of Gas youngsters in action as Joey Barton rotates his starting XI.

Kick-off is at 19:00 and we’ll be bringing you all the build-up, action, reaction and analysis from BS7 plus any news concerning incomings and outgoings at the Gas as the transfer window draws to a close.
