Match Preview

Alex at full strength for Rovers clash Crewe boss Steve Davis has the luxury of a fully-fit squad to choose from when Bristol Rovers visit Gresty Road. Harry Davis overcame a bruised thigh to return to the starting line-up in the 1-1 draw at Crawley on Good Friday, while fellow defender Matt Tootle will be hoping to regain a place in the squad having overcome a thigh strain. Striker Max Clayton was named among the substitutes against the Red Devils after overcoming a foot infection. The Railwaymen are unbeaten in 11 games and their manager takes great pride in a run that has taken them to within two points of an npower League Two play-off spot. "The players have a real belief that they can win anywhere," Davis told Alex's official website. "That has come from when we won 1-0 at Oxford in the last minute and they have carried that on. To go 11 games unbeaten is a fantastic achievement and we just have to keep it going." Bristol Rovers have doubts over a trio of first-team regulars. Defender Jim Paterson was substituted after 43 minutes of the 2-2 draw with Gillingham on Friday with breathing difficulties and may not be fit enough to feature for Rovers, while Dan Woodards sustained a neck injury in the same game and could also miss out. Winger Mustapha Carayol suffered a minor recurrence of the hamstring problem that saw him taken off during the goalless draw at Swindon recently and is a slight doubt for the trip. Centre-back Adam Virgo is the only long-term absentee for Rovers with a knee ligament problem that is likely to keep the former Brighton man out until the end of the season.
