Cherries In Town

Cherries In Town

Rovers will face Bournemouth on Saturday, with the centre of midfield looking very short on options. Kevin Horlock is still sidelined after surgery on his knee. Antony Griffith is also likely to be missing, having failed to recover from a knock to his knee as well.

Dave Penney may continue with former Bournemouth player Jimmy O'Connor in the defensive midfield role after the right-back put in an impressive performance in the game at Swansea. Alternatively Penney may play Paul Green and Shaun Thornton together, however, as both players are attack minded this has yet to prove a pairing that works.

Gareth Roberts will return to the squad after suspension but will probably have to settle for a place on the bench as Sean McDaid has deputised well.

Graeme Lee and Steven Roberts, both rested for the midweek Carling Cup game will return.

Upfront, Penney should continue with McCammon who scored twice in the win over Rochdale. Lewis Guy may get another run out, unless left-winger Forte switches to a striking role or new boy Michele Di Piedi is handed his debut.

Bruce Dyer will definately be missing through injury and although carrying an injury, Paul Heffernan may make the bench.

Bournemouth will have on loan Derby striker Lionel Ainsworth back in contention after injury though James Coutts (calf) and Warren Cummings (groin) will both miss out.

Dedicated supporters thats what I like to see, I felt sorry for the Rovers fans who a few years back made the journey down to Bournemouth only to be 4-0 down after 20 minutes.

I appreciate what your saying no.1rover but it is a Bank Holiday weekend where families do things together. Who wants to be stuck in a traffic jam when we have the sun and sand in Bournemouth. Get my drift bud?

no1 Rover, where do you travel from? I travel nearly 200 miles as often as I can. Just heared the draw for the league cup, Derby at home, will definitely be going as that could be my last home night game before the new stadium. quite ironic as Derby county in the league cup in 1976 was my first ever Rovers game.
