Football - Trio return for Rovers

Bristol Rovers are boosted by the return of three key players for their clash with York in the FA Cup with Budweiser first round.

PA Sport Report

Striker Matt Harrold is available after a spell on the sidelines with a groin injury, Lee Brown has overcome his hamstring problem and David Clarkson is available again after serving a three-match ban.

Rovers manager John Ward will have to make changes with two of his players ruled out. Midfielder John-Joe O'Toole is suspended while Will Packwood misses out as parent club Birmingham do not want their loanee to be cup-tied.

Ollie Norburn is set to step in for O'Toole while Pat Keary and Tom Lockyer could fill the void left by Packwood as Rovers look to build on their first win for two months last weekend.
