Brown: Hopes to play for Pirates

Brown: Hopes to play for Pirates

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Bristol Rovers and AFC Wimbledon at the Memorial Stadium.

Lee Brown could make Bristol Rovers' squad for the home contest with AFC Wimbledon.

The left-back travelled to Torquay last Saturday but took no part in the 2-2 draw as his ankle was placed in a protective boot.

Brown feared he could be out of action for two months but he was back training this week and manager Mark McGhee is hopeful he will feature against the Dons.

Wayne Brown is also back in training from his long-term ankle injury but the midfielder's target is only to return before the end of the season after such a long time out.

McGhee thinks goalkeeper Michael Poke is not yet ready for competitive action despite training after an an ankle problem.

Defensive duo Gary Sawyer (hamstring) and Aaron Downes (knee cartilage) are definitely out.

Meanwhile, Jason Euell plays the final game of his loan spell when AFC Wimbledon head to Bristol Rovers.

The veteran striker has made eight appearances for the Dons since joining in January but is due back at parent club Charlton after the match.

Sunderland youngster Billy Knott and fellow midfielder George Moncur of West Ham have this week extended their loan spells by another month.

Manager Terry Brown has no new injury worries and could name an unchanged line-up after his side secured back-to-back wins with a 3-1 victory over Bradford in midweek.

Left-back Chris Bush is fit again after missing a couple of games with a hip injury so forward Jason Prior is the only absentee with a knee problem.
