Match On 02/02/2016

January 31, 2016


Bristol Rovers are scheduled to play the last of their three games in the Final Third Development League Cup.

This Cup is used by clubs to provide competitive games for their Reserve/Under-21/Development sides.

It will be played at 1pm at Rovers’ training ground, The Lawns in Station Road, on Tuesday 2nd February 2016.

The Pilgrims cannot qualify for the final from Southern Group B.

Previously, Plymouth Argyle lost away to Swindon Town (4-1) and at home to Newport County (4-3).

Argyle manager Derek Adams has a near fully fit squad, so he is likely to send a strong team to fulfil this fixture.

Plymouth Argyle will be bolstered by the recent loan signings of Jordon Forster and Daniel Nardiello.

Bristol Rovers will finish first in Southern Group B and a place in the final against Southend United with a win.

Any other result will mean that Swindon Town will meet Southend United in the Final.

Southern Group A

1st Southend United P 3  W 2 D 0 L 1 F 7 A 4 PTS 6
