Beattie has no fresh concerns

Accrington boss James Beattie will be pleased that he has picked up no further injuries ahead of the home clash with Bristol Rovers.

Kayode Odejayi is serving the second game in a three-match ban after being sent off against AFC Wimbledon.

Rob Atkinson (hamstring), Laurence Wilson (groin) and Michael Liddle (ankle) are all ruled out, as is James Caton who was taken off injured in the match against the Dons.

Danny Webber, who managed 70 minutes against Oxford at the weekend on his comeback from a groin strain, should continue in attack.

Bristol Rovers will be without David Clarkson for the trip.

The Scottish striker will serve the first of his three-match ban after seeing red in Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to Wycombe.

That result leaves John Ward's men just one point above the drop zone and only six clear of their rock-bottom hosts but manager John Ward could be boosted by the return of Eliot Richards.

The two-goal striker was back in training on Monday after a hamstring strain and there is a chance he could travel north but fellow forwards Matt Harrold and Ryan Brunt are not fully fit.
