Match Preview

McGhee boosted by returning players Bristol Rovers manager Mark McGhee has been boosted by the return to fitness of a quartet of senior players in time for the npower League Two visit of Morecambe this weekend. McGhee has revealed that striker Matt Harrold, defender Danny Woodards and forward pairing Joe Anyinsah and Mustapha Carayol will all play a part for the Pirates on Saturday after recovering from their respective injuries. Rovers will be without centre-back Gary Sawyer, however, who is set for four weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring problem, while on-loan defender Aaron Downes is out of action for at least six weeks after suffering knee cartilage damage during the 2-1 victory over Bradford on January 28. New signing Tom Parkes, who arrived on loan from Leicester on a one-month deal on Thursday, could make his debut. Andy Fleming is back in contention for Morecambe. The midfielder would have missed last weekend's postponed clash with Dagenham due to an ankle injury but has since returned to full training. Barry Roche will take his place between the posts after signing a new contract at the Globe Arena this week and overcoming an unspecified knock. Top scorer Kevin Ellison has trained freely without further trouble from his ongoing back complaint and is expected to start in attack. Izak Reid is stepping up his recovery from a hernia problem but the game at the Memorial Stadium comes too soon for the Shrimps winger. Defender Paul Scott remains a long-term absentee with a serious knee injury.

Match Report

Rovers march on under McGhee Bristol Rovers continued their revival under Mark McGhee as they recorded a third straight win with a 2-1 triumph at home to Morecambe. Lee Brown tapped in at the far post just prior to the hour mark after Scott McGleish had touched on a driven cross from the right by substitute Eliot Richards. And McGleish himself made sure of maximum points from three games under McGhee's management by rifling home a 75th-minute penalty after a needless shirt tug by Shrimps substitute Danny Carlton on Rovers replacement Matthew Lund. Rovers survived a late scare when another Morecambe sub Kevin Ellison found the roof of the net after Jordan Burrow's shot had been saved. And in injury time goalkeeper Michael Poke was forced to tip over an Ellison volley to preserve his side's narrow lead. Both teams hit the woodwork during a poor first half. Morecambe striker Phil Jevons clipped the ball over the advancing Poke only to see it bounce against a post. And Rovers frontman McGleish rattled an upright with a glancing header from Brown's free-kick.
