The Pirates, who pulled well clear of relegation trouble during a fine second-half of the season under Ward, will then host Scunthorpe seven days later before making the trip to Football League newcomers Newport.

Over the festive period, Rovers face Torquay away on Boxing Day and visit Rochdale prior to a New Year's Day meeting with Cheltenham at the Memorial Stadium.

Ward's men round off the season with a home fixture against Mansfield on May 3.
