Match Preview

Rovers return for duo Danny Coles and Mikkel Andersen are set to return to the Bristol Rovers starting line-up as they look to bounce back from their Carling Cup embarrassment at the hands of Oxford with a home win over Yeovil. Coles was rested for Tuesday night's humiliating 6-1 defeat at the Kassam Stadium but should return for the Pirates' first home game of the season. Goalkeeper Andersen, meanwhile, is back from international duty with Denmark Under-21s and is expected to replace Mike Green between the sticks. Paul Trollope has no injury worries, with Wayne Brown available for selection after recovering from a slight knock. The Rovers boss is unlikely to make wholesale changes to his starting line-up despite seeing them suffer heavy defeats in their opening two matches. Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton has a full squad at his disposal for the trip. The Glovers have enjoyed an impressive start to the season, beating Leyton Orient 2-1 in their opening league fixture before narrowly losing out to Championship side Crystal Palace in the first round of the Carling Cup. Skiverton has no fresh injury or suspension worries and is unlikely to make many changes to the side that faced the Eagles. Andy Williams will be keen to retain his place on the wing after joining Yeovil from Rovers in the summer. "I would not be surprised if I get a few boos, but I am not particularly bothered about that to be honest," Williams told the Somerset Standard. "I never really felt like I did myself justice while I was at the club, but I am not a Bristol Rovers player now and all the stuff I want to prove now is to the Yeovil Town fans." Skiverton's men recorded a 2-1 victory in the corresponding fixture last season, courtesy of goals from Jon Obika and Terrell Forbes.

Match Report

Anthony earns Rovers victory Byron Anthony was Bristol Rovers' last-gasp hero as the Pirates claimed a dramatic 2-1 late victory against 10-man Yeovil Town. The Glovers appeared to have salvaged a point when Adam Virgo cancelled out Jo Kuffour's opener in the first minute of stoppage time. But Anthony popped up to fire in the winner with 94 minutes on the clock to break Yeovil's hearts. The Glovers went behind at the end of the first half when Kuffour headed in a cross from Gary Sawyer. And they then had Jean-Paul Kalala sent off for two yellow cards with 10 minutes left. But as the game entered injury time, central defender Virgo volleyed in Andy Williams' corner from close range. Yeovil celebrated rescuing a point but that joy was premature as Anthony lashed the ball in off the underside of the crossbar to seal Rovers' first win of the season.
