Rovers remain unchanged Bristol Rovers manager Mark McGhee has no new injury concerns as his team prepare to host Morecambe.
McGhee is set to name an unchanged team after the Pirates were leading 3-1 at Wycombe in their last match, only for the game to be abandoned due to heavy rain.
The Gas manager's only selection dilemma comes in midfield, where Wayne Brown, Oliver Norburn, Matt Lund, and Seanan Clucas are yet to nail down a starting place alongside ever-present Matt Gill.
Rovers will be without defender Garry Kenneth (calf), goalkeeper Scott Bevan (wrist), and right-back Dan Woodards (broken leg) who continue their recoveries from injury.
Bevan is expected to miss a further fortnight, while Kenneth should return in the next month after sustaining an injury during the warm up against Barnet.
Woodards broke his leg last season, and his due for a first-team return in mid-October.
Morecambe boss Jim Bentley has a fully fit squad to choose from when he takes charge of his 50th Football League game for the Shrimps.
He will be looking for a response to last weekend's defeat to Port Vale and hoping his side can continue their good run of form away from home.
Bentley named a strong side for the midweek League Cup defeat at Sunderland and could name the same starting line-up.
Forwards Richard Brodie and Izak Reid were both withdrawn after an hour as a precaution and are expected to start in attack.
Bristol Rovers vs Morecambe
Last modified 18:22 01/09/12
Shrimps hit three past Pirates Three second-half goals in the space of 10 minutes stunned Bristol Rovers and set Morecambe on course for a 3-0 win at the Memorial Stadium.
Gary McDonald broke the deadlock with a low finish on 52 minutes after Jordan Burrow had headed down a Kevin Ellison chip.
Nick Fenton doubled the lead with a right-footed volley from a narrow angle after 57 minutes and soon after Ellison waltzed through a wide open defence to slot home the third.
Rovers fans chanted "what a load of rubbish" as their team lacked a cutting edge and made costly errors.
Morecambe were unlucky not to go in front after 13 minutes when Andy Wright evaded a weak challenge 20 yards out and thumped a fine right-footed shot against a post with goalkeeper Sam Walker rooted to the spot.
