A look ahead to Wednesday's action

Reds kick off 2014 by playing host to Bristol Rovers in an FA Cup second round replay on Wednesday (7.45pm).


MATCH OFFICIALS

Referee: Andrew Davies Assistants: William Bull and Neil Davies Fourth Official: Paul Kelly


TEAM NEWS

Dannie Bulman (fractured cheekbone) and the suspended Billy Clarke are both out for Reds while Matt Tubbs is cup-tied.

Apart from striker Ryan Brunt, who has a long-term knee problem, Rovers have no injury concerns.


VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "It is going to be another difficult game, just like the previous two have been. But we've got a bit of momentum having won two of our last three games and we are looking forward to the game after a ten-day break."


John Ward (Bristol Rovers Manager): "We are ready to play. We gave the players a two-day break last weekend and they have come back re-energised for what we know will be a difficult game."


WE'VE MET BEFORE

Three completed meetings have produced two goalless draws at Bristol, including the first tie last month. The only league meeting at Crawley in September 2011 ended in a 4-1 win for Reds.


FORM GUIDE

Reds have lost just two of their last 11 in all competitions. Bristol Rovers have won one, drawn two and lost two of their five games since the sides drew 0-0 in the first Cup meeting on December 7.
