Bristol Rovers set to make changes for Barrow cup clash

Bristol Rovers are expected to make changes for the FA Cup second-round tie at home to Barrow on Sunday.

Rovers have won only once in seven games - against Crawley after extra-time in the previous round - and Charlie Colkett, Cristian Montano and Mark McChrystal are all in contention to step up from the bench.

Billy Bodin could also get a rare start after scoring his first goal of the season as a substitute in last weekend's 3-2 league defeat at Chesterfield.

Rovers boss Darrell Clarke will be in the dug-out after being given compassionate leave this week following the death of his grandmother.

Barrow boss Paul Cox could named an unchanged outfield line-up for a fourth successive game.

The Bluebirds' only change in recent weeks has been in goal, where first-choice Joel Dixon has been ruled out until next season with a cruciate ligament injury.

Tim Erlandsson, who joined Barrow on an initial one-month loan from Nottingham Forest, made his debut in last weekend's victory over Dagenham and Redbridge and should continue.

Barrow are enjoying the best unbeaten run in their history, with the Dagenham win making it 20 games without defeat.
