Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope will once again be without Will Hoskins for the visit of Leyton Orient.

Hoskins missed the 6-3 win over Wycombe in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after he strechered off in the FA Cup defeat to Darlington and it was first feared the striker had suffered ankle ligament damage.

But scans in midweek revealed he has a badly sprained ankle and will be out for a minimum of four weeks.

John Akinde will face a late fitness test after he limped out of Tuesday's game while Charlie Reece was named on the team-sheet for the game at Adams Park but pulled out before kick-off after injuring his back in the warm-up and is doubtful.

Ben Swallow staked his claim for a first-team place with a goal in midweek and Stuart Campbell returned in midfield after injury and will keep his place if he suffers no recurrence of a thigh problem.

Tottenham loanee Paul-Jose M'Poku should return to the Leyton Orient squad.

The teenage winger has missed the last three matches after suffering a hamstring injury against Swindon last month but is now back in training.

Defender Andrew Whing is available after missing the FA Cup draw at Dagenham last week under the terms of his loan from Brighton.

Striker Scott McGleish managed a late substitute appearance against the Daggers after a rib injury and is now fully fit with a week of full training under his belt.

But goalkeeper Jamie Jones faces another month on the sidelines as he needs a hernia operation and midfielder Adam Chambers is recovering from surgery on his calves.
