Anyinsah: Fully fit

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Bristol Rovers and Aldershot at Memorial Stadium.

Pirates defender Lee Brown did not suffer concussion during his side's 1-0 victory over Shrewsbury in midweek and may even be available for the home clash.

Brown was substituted after 26 minutes of the match against the Shrews on Tuesday and was taken to hospital with a head injury, but the club were relieved to hear the affects were not long-lasting.

Meanwhile, midfielder Matt Gill saw a chiropractor on Thursday with regards to a back problem, but Rovers are hopeful he could be fit for the weekend. Gill was withdrawn at half-time in midweek.

Otherwise, manager Paul Buckle appears to have got through a period of huge injury problems, with Joe Anyinsah, Chris Zebroski, Cian Bolger and Adam Virgo all fully fit.

The Shot make the away trip with a fully-fit squad as they look to extend their unbeaten run to seven games.

Luke Guttridge took a slight knock to his knee during Tuesday's 2-0 victory at Hereford while fellow midfielder Jamie Collins played the entire 90 minutes despite struggling with a bug.

Both are okay for the trip to the Memorial Stadium and will again be pushing to take their place in Dean Holdsworth's starting XI.

Peter Vincenti staked his claim for a starting berth in midweek as he stepped off the bench at Edgar Street and duly grabbed the second goal to see off the Bulls.

Midfielder Graeme Montgomery, who would have been unlikely to feature, has linked up with non-league Eastleigh on a one-month loan deal, joining team-mate Henrik Breimyr, who is set to extend his loan stay at the Blue Square Bet South side.
