Bristol Rovers have moved to shore up their defence with the loan signing of Joe Jacobson.

The Wales Under 21 international moves to the Memorial Stadium from Cardiff for the remainder of the campaign.

Jacobson has already spent a spell on loan in League Two with Accrington Stanley this season, and will now look to carve out a place under Paul Trollope.

However, the 20-year-old is ineligible for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy showdown with rivals Bristol City.

Jacobson will add depth to the Rovers defence for the final three months of the season as they eye a late play-off charge.
