Bristol Rovers face another promotion-chasing team tonight, boosted by their comfortable 3-0 win over third-placed Burton Albion on Saturday.

It was the Pirates' first win in four games and helped move them further away from a congested foot of the table.

Joe Anyinsah is a doubt for the match with a hamstring injury, but Fabian Broghammer has returned to training.

Rovers are looking to complete the double over Exeter. They won 2-1 at St James Park back in September to record their first win of the season after eight attempts.

Exeter City have won four out of their last five games to cement their place in the play-off positions. They had a convincing 3-0 win over fellow promotion contenders Northampton on Saturday. The Grecians' form on the road has been excellent. Their last away match saw a 2-0 victory at second-placed Port Vale.

City boss Paul Tisdale has no new injury concerns. Alan Gow, Liam Sercombe and Myles Anderson remain sidelined, while Mark Molesley serves the second game of his three-match suspension.

FORM:

BRISTOL ROVERS: W L D L W

EXETER CITY: W W L W W
