Match Preview

Pirates at full strength Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope has no fresh injury or suspension problems for the home game with Rochdale. Jo Kuffour and Chris Lines were restored to the starting line-up for Monday's defeat to Swindon and should retain their place. The derby defeat against the Robins saw the Pirates slip to 15th in npower League One and Trollope has urged his side to get back to winning ways against Dale. "We need to bounce back from the Swindon result," he told the club's official website. "There are areas we need to look at and lessons we can learn from the game, although I felt there were positives to take from the game. "But hopefully we can make the little improvements necessary and get back to winning ways." Rochdale boss Keith Hill has signed winger Nicky Adams on loan. The winger has failed to settle in west London since signing from Leicester and has agreed a loan deal at Spotland which will be made permanent in January. Defender Scott Wiseman has missed the last six games with a stomach muscle injury but is nearing full fitness again and is expected to come back into contention. Hill said: "Scott Wiseman will be fit for the next game. When we are trying to force the issue and take a few chances, Scott has the know-how going forward and defensively." Defensive colleague Joe Widdowson returned after a knee injury in last weekend's 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Yeovil, a result which could prompt Hill to make changes.

Match Report

Rovers see off Dale Chris Lines struck with a rasping drive as Bristol Rovers secured a 2-1 victory against Rochdale. Jeff Hughes fired the Pirates ahead from the penalty spot in first half injury time after a foul by Marcus Holness on Jo Kuffour. Lines doubled their advantage when he found the roof of the net with a right-foot bullet, but Rovers had to endure a nervy finish after Byron Anthony deflected an 86th minute cross from Nicky Adams past his own goalkeeper. Rochdale could consider themselves unlucky after hitting the post twice through a first half header from Anthony Elding and an 80th minute effort from substitute Matt Done. Rovers striker Will Hoskins forced the best save of the game from Josh Lillis with a 73rd minute volley after cleverly controlling a Charlie Reece pass with his head. Rochdale attacked with menace, with Adams a threat on the right flank and Chris O'Grady a constant handful up front.
