Hello, Gasheads, and welcome to live coverage of Bristol Rovers’ pre-match press conference with Joey Barton set to speak publicly for the first time since sparking controversy at the weekend.

The Rovers boss has faced intense scrutiny for his use of the term “holocaust” in Saturday’s post-match presser after the defeat to Newport County. The club, too, has been criticised for declining to comment on the matter despite repeated requests.

On the pitch, Barton’s side face Harrogate Town on Saturday in League Two, with former Sulphurites keeper James Belshaw also due to speak to media today.

The press conference is due to begin shortly, so stay tuned for live updates and reaction.
