Rovers have won one, drawn one and lost one as the seson gets going. Saints have played two at home and have managed only a draw so far. Saints will be desperate to get their season up and running after a slow start and will be hoping to repeat the wins at the Memorial ground last season. The performances have been ok to date apart from the lack of goals.
Carl Regan Rovers defender could be fir to play after an Achilles injury and Dominic Blizzard could also be in with a shout of being included.
Byron Anthony got a knock at Exeter but is also expecting to be ready.
Former Watford striker Will Hoskins is likely to lead the frontline with Jo Kuffour partnering him.
Hoskins has started the season well and could be the main danger to Saints.
New signing Guilherme do Prado is still waiting on his international clearance. If it arrives on time he is likely to have a part to play.
Frazer Richardson is still a longterm casualty with his dislocated shoulder and Dan Seaborne is another unlikely to be ready for the game this week. Rickie Lambert is still short of match fitness but will be hoping to repeat last seasons scoring feat against Rovers at his old stamping ground.
Having heard some glowing reports from Pardew about the Brazilian we could all be watching him closely if he starts. Big strong and able to set up attacks he could be a very dangerous player for us.
Bristol Rovers matches at home to Southampton have finished with both sides winning five games and there has been two matches finishing as draws.
Mr Graham Scott will be in charge of this game. Ably assisted by Mr M Scholes & Mr G Stretton. 4th Official will be Mr S Garratt.
With Saints gradually improving I am hoping that the one thing missing to date will be produced on Saturday. Goals are all that has been missing and I go for a 1-3 win to Saints.
