Match Preview

Pirates looking strong for derby clash Bristol Rovers have a fully-fit squad for their showdown with rivals Swindon at the Memorial Stadium. Boss Dave Penney is looking to record his first win in charge but will be without defender Danny Coles, who is currently serving a four-match suspension after his dismissal against Carlisle. Loanee David McCracken made his Rovers debut in the 0-0 draw at home to Hartlepool in midweek and looks set to continue in defence. The Pirates have not won in 12 league matches and currently sit 22nd in League One. Top scorer Will Hoskins has scored six of the club's last eight goals, taking his tally for the season to 14 and he will once again be partnered in attack by Jo Kuffour. Swindon face a further defensive reshuffle for the derby clash. Left-back Michael Rose saw red in last Saturday`s desperately disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Yeovil and now starts his suspension, although Alan Sheehan`s return from a thigh problem is timely and he will slot in. Sean Morrison, left out of the XI to face the Glovers, has now completed his transfer to Reading for an undisclosed fee. But fellow centre-back Andy Frampton may return to contention having missed out last weekend with a groin strain, leaving manager Danny Wilson with plenty to ponder at the back. Goalkeeper David Lucas (knee) remains sidelined. Much of the pre-match speculation continues to surround striker Charlie Austin and this week`s unconfirmed reports of a written transfer request on his part, although the 21-year-old is still certain to start at the Memorial Stadium.

Match Report

Hoskins shines for Penney Will Hoskins hit his 15th goal of the season to set Bristol Rovers on course for a 3-1 win over Swindon, their first victory under new boss Dave Penney. The striker ran onto a through-ball from Chris Lines to confidently shoot past Phil Smith after seven minutes and Jo Kuffour capitalised on a defensive mix-up to fire the second on just after the break. Jon-Paul McGovern gave Swindon hope with a superbly struck 66th-minute volley after a mistake by the otherwise reliable David McCracken. But Jeff Hughes stole in at the near post to head home a Hoskins cross after 74 minutes to settle the outcome. Rovers deserved the points, although Swindon were enjoying a good spell when Hughes struck the decisive third goal. Home goalkeeper Luke Daniels played his part, doing well to save a 49th-minute header from Charlie Austin.
