Bristol Rovers Vs Dagenham & Redbridge, Sat 5 Mar 2011

Next Story

Bristol Rovers boss Dave Penney looks set to have captain Stuart Campbell available for the relegation six-pointer against Dagenham.

The midfielder has been missing for the last four weeks through a hamstring injury but made his comeback for the reserves on Wednesday.

Left-back Gary Sawyer is also expected to be available after recovering from the dead leg, which caused him to miss the 1-0 home defeat to Colchester in midweek.

Striker Rene Howe should retain his starting place following the extension of his loan spell from Peterborough, but fellow loanee Scott Davies has returned to parent club Reading after Penny decided against prolonging his stay.

On-loan Brentford centre-back Dave McCracken and Welsh defender Byron Anthony are doubtful as they continue to struggle with hamstring and ankle problems respectively.

Dagenham defender Scott Doe missed last Saturday's home defeat to Bournemouth with a cut on his foot, but he should be available.

Frenchman Romain Vincelot will return to midfield after filling in at the back last week, so Peter Gain will drop down to the bench.

Defender Will Antwi is still suffering with a groin problem but his rehabilitation work is well under way and he should be available in a fortnight.

Striker Josh Scott is out for the rest of the season with a blood clot and loan signing from Bristol City John Akinde remains sidelined.

Akinde has not even trained with the Daggers since signing as he battles to overcome a groin injury.
