Bristol Rovers have extended the loan of defender Daniel Jones until the end of the season ahead of their trip to Exeter.

The Wolves man, 23, has started all six games since arriving last month, coinciding with an upturn in form that has seen Rovers lose just once during that period to maintain their outside hopes of a play-off place.

Pirates chairman Nick Higgs told the club's official website: "Daniel has slotted into the team very well and we hope that continues over the last 11 games of the campaign."

Next up for Jones is Wednesday's trip to St James Park and manager Paul Trollope is hoping he will be joined in defence by Byron Anthony, who was stretchered off with a suspected broken leg just before half-time in Saturday's goalless draw against Tranmere.

However, despite initial fears to the contrary, X-rays have confirmed there was no serious damage and Anthony has an outside chance of being fit.

The club are hopeful striker Jo Kuffour will be available having been dogged with a series of migraines since Saturday's clash, while Carl Regan (knee) has stepped up his rehabilitation and may also be in contention. However, on-loan midfielder Wayne Brown has been recalled by parent club Fulham.
