Rovers boss itching for action

15 January 2009 01:28
Due to their elimination from the FA Cup at the first-round stage and freezing conditions forcing the postponement of the league games against Crewe and Yeovil, the Pirates' match at Brisbane Road will be their first since drawing 0-0 at Northampton on December 28.

Rovers have been forced to train indoors for most of the last 10 days but first-team coach Trollope insists that is no excuse for not performing on Saturday.

He said: "It has been frustrating but a lot of other teams will have been in the same situation.

"There are some very good training facilities at Colerne so we have been able to do a lot of work despite the weather and we are prepared."

Meanwhile, Rovers youngsters Joe White and Charlie Reece have joined Yate Town and Solihull Moor on loan respectively while a third teenager - Tomaso Parrinello - has extended his loan spell at Weston-super-Mare.
