Match Preview

Patterson to assess Akinde Bristol Rovers caretaker manager Darren Patterson could again be without striker John Akinde for the home clash with Plymouth. Akinde missed the 2-0 defeat to MK Dons on New Year's Day due to a slight groin strain but Patterson was able to call on Jo Kuffour, who had recovered from illness. Kuffour will continue alongside Will Hoskins up front if Akinde fails to make it. Patterson, whose side had not played for over three weeks before New Year's Day due to a series of postponements, has no other new injury concerns. Midfielder Jeff Hughes and striker Eliot Richards are both pushing for starting berths after stepping off the substitutes' bench at half-time at stadiummk. The Pirates, chasing their first league win in 10 games, have slipped to within four points of the relegation zone. Crisis-club Plymouth will hope to lift some of the gloom when they head to the Memorial Stadium. Argyle are facing financial difficulties off the field and manager Peter Reid has conceded he will have to sell his star names in the transfer window. The Pilgrims began life without star man Craig Noone with a hard-earned 0-0 draw against Yeovil on Saturday and Reid was impressed with his replacement, youngster Joe Mason. "Since I've been here, I've always though Joe was a really good footballer," said Reid. "Hopefully, this little run (in the team) will bring this confidence out of him because some of the things he does are really good." Mason, 19, is likely to retain his place in a three-pronged attack as Reid has no injury worries to contend with. Therefore, Argyle could remain unchanged as they look to go five matches unbeaten.

Match Report

Pilgrims revival rocks Rovers Stephane Zubar completed a stirring Plymouth fightback by heading an 80th-minute winner to secure a 3-2 victory over Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium. Will Hoskins shot Rovers into an eighth-minute lead and added a second two minutes later, rounding goalkeeper David Button after a dreadful error by Carl Fletcher. Bradley Wright-Phillips started Plymouth's comeback by turning to shoot home after 58 minutes and strike-partner Joe Mason capitalised on more poor defending to fire a 67th-minute equaliser from close range. Zubar was then allowed room to nod the winner from a free-kick to leave Rovers' caretaker boss Darren Patterson without a point from his first two games in charge. Plymouth hit a post through substitute Yannick Bolasie after 70 minutes and Rovers were also denied by the woodwork when Button clipped a low effort from substitute Jo Kuffour onto a post. Both sides had chances in an exciting climax but it was nearly 800 Argyle fans who were celebrating at the final whistle.
