Rhys Evans will return to Bristol Rovers` starting line-up for the visit of struggling Stockport.

Mikkel Andersen is away on international duty with the Denmark Under-21 squad so Evans will be back in goal on Tuesday night.

Boss Paul Trollope must decide whether to make any more changes or stick with the same outfield line-up that beat Colchester.

"That`s the dilemma but it`s good to have those choices," he said. "I have options if I need to freshen it up a bit. There are a lot of games coming up and everyone will be needed."

Defenders Aaron Lescott and Carl Regan, midfielder Mark Wright and striker Andy Williams are among those players who will be hoping to get a recall.

Trollope added: "They have been on the bench recently after being regular starters for us this season and playing a lot of games. They are disappointed and frustrated at that but, like I say, there are a lot of games coming up and everyone will be needed."

Stockport boss Gary Ablett will be without defenders Danny Swailes and Johnny Mullins for the trip.

Swailes suffered a dead leg in the 4-3 win over Wycombe at the weekend and will miss the trip, while Mullins sustained an ankle knock in the same game and is unavailable.

Ablett is also still without long-term absentee Matty Mainwaring given he is still recovering from a broken leg, with fellow injury victim Gianluca Havern targeting a comeback next month having undergone surgery last week.

Stockport registered just their fifth victory of the season against Wanderers on Saturday and are looking to chalk up back-to-back wins in League One for the first time this season.
