Chelsea goalkeeper Sam Walker has joined Bristol Rovers on loan until January and is likely to start against Ipswich.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed previous loan spells at Barnet, Northampton and Yeovil after consolidating his position as first-choice goalkeeper for the Chelsea youth team.

With Rovers goalkeeper Scott Bevan sidelined with a wrist injury, Walker is eligible to make his Pirates debut in their Capital One Cup first-round tie against Ipswich at Portman Road.
