Dickson set for Rovers return

Next Story

Bristol Rovers welcome back loanee Chris Dickson for their home game against Exeter.

Dickson was ineligible to play against his parent club Charlton last Tuesday and manager Paul Trollope will have to decide whether to bring the forward back into the side, or keep faith with his replacement Daryl Duffy.

The Rovers boss could also hand a recall to Carl Regan.

The full-back was only on the bench for the clash with the Addicks following his return from suspension, but could be handed a starting role after Rovers shipped four goals at the Valley.

Fellow defender Aaron Lescott misses out again as he continues to recover from a groin injury.

Having not played for four weeks, he has begun light training and is thought to be seven to 10 days away from first-team action.

Exeter are boosted by the return from suspension of Steve Tully.

Tully was ruled out of the 4-3 FA Cup defeat against MK Dons at the weekend, with Richard Duffy deputising at right-back in his absence.

However, Duffy is an injury doubt ahead of the trip to the Memorial Stadium after limping out of Saturday's game with a thigh injury.

He was replaced at stadium:mk by on-loan Tottenham defender Troy Archibald-Henville, but Tully is expected to reclaim his place against Rovers.

Striker Adam Stansfield is pushing for a starting berth after he scored for a third successive game following his second-half introduction at the weekend.

Stansfield came on for Stuart Fleetwood and may now be handed a start ahead of the on-loan Charlton forward.
