Rovers to monitor Harrold

Bristol Rovers striker Matt Harrold is a doubt for the visit of Fleetwood.


The former Wycombe striker, who has been in good form in recent weeks, has suffered a recurrence of a groin strain which sidelined him earlier this season and the Pirates will assess him ahead of kick-off.


Fellow forward Ryan Brant will also be monitored in the build-up. Brunt has been suffering with an ankle problem but managed almost an hour in last Friday's 1-1 draw at Southend.


With question marks over a number of their attackers it is no surprise that manager John Ward confirmed Ellis Harrison, who has broken into the first team as a winger, will now be deployed as a central striker.


Midfielder Junior Brown will be monitored when Fleetwood bid to get back to winning ways.


Graham Alexander's high-flying Cod Army are out to prove last weekend's home loss to Exeter was a mere blip after four successive victories but they may have to do so without Brown.


The 24-year-old came off at half-time against the Grecians with an Achilles injury and, although he is set to travel to Bristol, Alexander will monitor him closer to kick-off.


Brown was replaced by Matty Blair at Highbury and he scored Fleetwood's goal in the 2-1 loss meaning both he and striker Jamille Matt could be pushing for recalls.
