Football - Packwood blow for Rovers

Bristol Rovers will be without defender Will Packwood at Morecambe on Saturday after he was recalled by Birmingham.

PA Sport Report

The 20-year-old has been a crucial cog in John Ward's side since joining on loan but an injury to Blues left-back Mitch Hancox saw Lee Clark activate an instant recall clause.

Packwood's departure means Tom Lockyer will play alongside captain Tom Parkes at Morecambe as Rovers look to continue a fine run of form which has seen them lose just one of their last nine games in all competitions.

Chris Beardsley and John-Joe O'Toole return to contention having served their three-match bans.
