Match Preview

Buckle braced for Gulls reunion Paul Buckle will go into his first home match as Bristol Rovers boss against former club Torquay with no new injury concerns. The Pirates have not played since their opening-day win over AFC Wimbledon as their Carling Cup clash with Watford was called off at the request of police following the riots. Buckle led the Gulls to the play-off final last May before joining Rovers just two days later. He has since returned to Plainmoor to bring goalkeeper Scott Bevan and striker Chris Zebroski with him to the Memorial Stadium. Both should start against their previous employers. Rovers' longest-serving player Stuart Campbell continues to miss out with a hamstring injury and defender Gary Sawyer is still recovering from a hernia operation but both are nearing full fitness.M Billy Kee will return to Torquay's starting line-up after firing an international hat-trick in mid-week. The 20-year-old was appointed captain of the Northern Ireland Under-21s in their game against the Faroe Islands and duly slammed in a treble. It did however mean that Kee missed the 4-1 drubbing that Southampton gave his club team-mates in the first round of the Carling Cup. Daniel Leadbitter could be in line to make his debut after missing the first two games with a hamstring strain. Torquay travel to the Memorial Stadium keen to ruin the occasion for their former boss and ex-Gulls Scott Bevan and Chris Zebroski, who all left Plainmoor in the summer.

Match Report

Buckle downed by former club First-half goals from strike duo Taiwo Atieno and Rene Howe made it an unhappy afternoon against his old club for Bristol Rovers boss Paul Buckle as his side went down 2-1 in his first home game in charge. Atieno was allowed time and space to drill a low shot past Scott Bevan from 15 yards after 10 minutes. Howe extended the lead from the penalty spot three minutes later after Bevan had brought down Atieno. Byron Anthony gave Rovers hope with a 55th minute header after Joe Anyinsah's shot had been saved, but Buckle`s boys could not force an equaliser. It was a good day for Howe, who played on loan at Rovers last season. He led the Torquay attack skilfully in a dangerous combination with Atieno. A thrilling derby saw Torquay edge it through better defending. The Gulls would have won by a bigger margin had Brian Saah and Ian Morris not wasted good opportunities from headers.
