                                                    Brown boost for Rovers Lee Brown could make Bristol Rovers' squad for the home contest with AFC Wimbledon.

                                                    The left-back travelled to Torquay last Saturday but took no part in the 2-2 draw as his ankle was placed in a protective boot.

                                                    Brown feared he could be out of action for two months but he was back training this week and manager Mark McGhee is hopeful he will feature against the Dons.

                                                    Wayne Brown is also back in training from his long-term ankle injury but the midfielder's target is only to return before the end of the season after such a long time out.

                                                    McGhee thinks goalkeeper Michael Poke is not yet ready for competitive action despite training after an an ankle problem.

                                                    Defensive duo Gary Sawyer (hamstring) and Aaron Downes (knee cartilage) are definitely out.

                                                    Jason Euell plays the final game of his loan spell for AFC Wimbledon.

                                                    The veteran striker has made eight appearances for the Dons since joining in January but is due back at parent club Charlton after the match.

                                                    Sunderland younsgter Billy Knott and fellow midfielder George Moncur of West Ham have this week extended their loan spells by another month.

                                                    Manager Terry Brown has no new injury worries and could name an unchanged line-up after his side secured back-to-back wins with a 3-1 victory over Bradford in midweek.

                                                    Carayol stars as Rovers wade through A brilliant solo goal from Mustapha Carayol earned Bristol Rovers a 1-0 win over AFC Wimbledon on a quagmire of a Memorial Stadium pitch.

                                                    The winger accepted the ball just inside the Wimbledon half after 11 minutes and cut in from the left to bend a perfectly placed shot past Seb Brown from the edge of the box.

                                                    Wimbledon made a fight of it in the second half and Rovers keeper Scott Bevan had to make fine saves from George Moncur and Sammy Moore.

                                                    Rovers created all the chances of a first half made treacherous by heavy rain. Matt Gill was just inches wide with a low shot on 33 minutes.

                                                    Chris Zebroski had two efforts off target and just before the break a low, skidding shot from Danny Woodards went just the wrong side of a post.

                                                    But in the end both sides deserved credit for serving up an entertaining game in increasingly difficult conditions.
