Match Preview

Harrold out for Pirates Bristol Rovers will be without injured striker Matt Harrold for their npower League Two clash with Crawley. Harrold is struggling with an ankle injury and has missed Rovers' last two matches. The Pirates' top scorer is likely to be sidelined for another fortnight, meaning young forward Eliot Richards will have to lead the line at the Memorial Stadium. Caretaker manager Shaun North will be missing another attacking option in Mustapha Carayol, who is currently out of action with a groin problem, while midfielder Matt Gill is also a doubt. Gary Sawyer sustained a head injury in the 2-1 victory at Hereford on Tuesday night and North is waiting on news of the defender's fitness ahead of Saturday's clash with the league leaders. Defender Adam Virgo (knee ligaments) and midfielder Wayne Brown (ankle) remain long-term absentees. High-flying Crawley should be unchanged for the trip. Boss Steve Evans has a fully-fit squad to choose from and named his strongest line-up for last weekend's FA Cup win over Rovers' neighbours Bristol City. Crawley this week turned down a bid of #400,000 for star striker Matt Tubbs so he will continue to lead the line. Tubbs' 17th goal of the season secured Town's 1-0 win over the Championship Robins. Evans received a further boost this week when defender Claude Davis signed a new 18-month contract. Crawley beat off interest from Championship and League One clubs to retain the 32-year-old Jamaican centre-half, who arrived on a short-term deal in September after leaving Crystal Palace.

Match Report

Rovers hold Crawley in dire stalemate Managerless Bristol Rovers turned in a much-improved defensive display under caretaker manager Shaun North to hold League Two leaders Crawley to a goalless draw. The best chances of a dour game came in the second half, with Rovers goalkeeper Michael Poke making the most testing save of all from Matt Tubbs' 47th-minute shot. Chris Zebroski and Craig Stanley shot narrowly wide for the home side but there was little to trouble Crawley keeper Scott Shearer upon his return to his old club. The first half was a dire spectacle as both sides struggled to come to terms with an uneven pitch and defences dominated. Joe Anyinsah went close for Rovers with an early shot and might have had a penalty when he appeared to be pushed in the back by Pablo Mills. At the other end there was barely a shot to test home keeper Poke and the eventual outcome was a fair one with chances very few and far between.
