Sam Slocombe will again deputise in the Rovers goal if Adam Smith has not recovered from injury.

Former Blackpool goalkeeper Slocombe made his debut in Saturday's 3-2 league win at Bury after Smith damaged his hand.

Defender Dan Leadbitter also missed Rovers' first league victory of the season with a thigh injury.

Rovers are expected to make several changes after boss Darrell Clarke admitted there was a "lot of walking wounded" after the Bury game.
