Bristol Rovers manager Paul Buckle has suggested he will chop his squad down to size in the coming weeks.

Buckle has drafted in 18 new players since his arrival at the Memorial Stadium and the former Torquay boss feels he still needs to let a few more go to balance the books.

The 40-year-old told the Bristol Evening Post: "There are one or two here who still might move on, and that always happens when you get a new manager and a big turnaround in players."

Buckle added: "It would be wrong of me to talk about players before something happens, but the squad isn't settled yet. We still have business to do and the futures of one or two people to sort out. I'll be happy when we get a really settled squad - but we aren't there yet."
