Lines out for Rovers

08 February 2010 02:17
Bristol Rovers have several injury concerns ahead of their second game against Walsall in the space of four days. Midfielder Chris Lines was due to go for a scan on Monday to discover the extent of abdominal damage that kept him out of Saturday's goalless draw against the Saddlers. Lines will definitely not feature against Chris Hutchings' side, while full-back Aaron Lescott also remains sidelined with a hip injury. Central defender Danny Coles is an absentee once again due to a knee injury, so Steve Elliott, Dominic Blizzard and Mark Wright are set to retain their starting berths. Pirates boss Paul Trollope also has doubts over defenders Carl Regan (dead leg) and Jeff Hughes (groin), who sustained injuries at the weekend. Trollope will be looking to add to his squad with at least one loan signing when the window re-opens on Tuesday.
