Bristol Rovers, who were in League 1 last season, travel to the Globe Arena on Saturday.

Manager

Paul Buckle. The former Torquay manager took over at relegated Rovers in the summer after guiding the Gulls to the League 2 play-offs last season.

One to watch

Craig Stanley. The former Shrimps fans’ favourite looks set to return to the Globe Arena on Saturday having left the club in the summer to join Rovers. He had been dropped by Buckle after showing disappointment at being substituted against Hereford last month, but the midfielder played 35 minutes of The Pirates’ 1-0 home defeat to Aldershot on Saturday and seems to be back in favour.
