Team news: Morecambe v Bristol Rovers
Injury to key players forces Bristol Rovers boss John Ward into a change of formation and personnel for this afternoon's clash at the Globe Arena.
Striker Ryan Brunt (knee), wideman Fabian Broghammer (hamstring) and David Clarkson (ankle) all failed to recover after picking up knocks during Tuesday night's defeat at the hands of Rotherham United.
Ward has, as a result, decided to hand starts to strikers Eliot Richards and Tom Hitchcock in a change that facilitates a switch to a 4-4-2 formation.
Danny Woodards returns to the side to add some defensive solidity on the flank, while midfielder Oliver Norburn is an unfortunate victim of the switch and drops to the bench.
