The defender was carried off on a stretcher in the opening minutes of Bristol Rovers' 2-1 weekend defeat at Swindon after colliding with team-mate Steve Phillips. Centre-backs Danny Coles and Craig Hinton have already been ruled out of this weekend's game but Trollope is hopeful Anthony will be fit. Trollope told the Bristol Evening Post: "Our season is ending as it began - with an injury crisis at the back. "Byron wasn't knocked out completely, but there were a few moments there where he was close to it. "As far as we are concerned, he will be fine to play next weekend. We might not see him in training until the end of the week, but we need him to play."
