Bristol Rovers boss Darrell Clarke has goalkeeper call to make

Bristol Rovers boss Darrell Clarke has a big decision to make ahead of Coventry's Sky Bet League One visit.

Clarke dropped on-loan Derby goalkeeper Kelle Roos after the young Dutchman had made a couple of costly mistakes.

But Roos' replacement, Will Puddy, made a dreadful error in last week's 2-0 defeat at Shrewsbury, and Clarke later complained that "we may as well have kicked the ball in our own net".

Chris Lines could return in midfield after sitting out the last two games, while Billy Bodin and Ellis Harrison are also pushing for recalls.

New Coventry manager Russell Slade will bid to end the club's string of six successive losses at Bristol Rovers.

The former Cardiff and Leyton Orient manager has been parachuted in at the ailing Sky Blues until the end of the season.

Burnley loan forward Dan Agyei should retain his place up front after claiming Coventry's sole strike in the 2-1 home loss to Sheffield United.

Teenage talent Agyei could again link up with Marvin Sordell at the top of Coventry's attack.
