Bristol Rovers v Huddersfield Town
Town team to face Rovers
Collins, Clarke, Page, Sinclair, Kamara, Worthington, Berrett, Brandon, Booth, Beckett
Smithies, Racchi, Akins, Broadbent, Williams
Holdsworth does not feature due to injury, it looks like Collins will play at right back and Sinclair covering at left back.
Young strikers, Akins and Broadbent are on the bench.
Ritchie not risking the recovering from injury Williams, but he has a place on the bench.
BRISTOL ROVERS: Steve Phillips, Aaron Lescott, Byron Anthony, Danny Coles, Joe Jacobson, Chris Lines, Stuart Campbell, Craig Disley, David Pipe, Josh Klein-Davies, Rickie Lambert
Substitutes: Richard Walker, Andy Williams, Sean Rigg, Craig Hinton, Lewis Haldane
Page gets an early chance for Huddersfield, and Lambert misses one at the other end in the early stages.
A wind affected game.
So severe that the Rovers authorities have closed a temporary stand due to safety concerns.
Probably won't be the best football in the World today.
Twenty minutes gone, another Glennon gaff, failing to meet a ball he went for, results in debutant Klein-Davies scoring.
1-0 to Rovers
Rovers have a goal disallowed.
Berrett equalises, 1-1
Its not often Huddersfield come back from a losing position to win, but they do have time to do it.
Game back on now.
HALF TIME - Bristol Rovers 1 Huddersfield Town 1
This game could go either way, or no way at all, it is all still up for grabs.
Rovers have scored with only a couple of minutes of the second half gone. Lines from a tight angle on the break.
2-1 to Bristol Rovers
Pipe is replaced by Haldane for Rovers.
I would be surprised if the game goes on much longer without any Huddersfield substitutions.
Williams comes on to replace Kamara, hardly an attacking substitution by Andy Ritchie.
Andy Williams on for Rovers now, replacing Klein-Davis.
We now have both Andy Williams and Robbie Williams on the field.
Very Musical !
Brandon has equalised for Huddersfield with twenty minutes remaining, from a Booth flick on.
Worthington goes into the referees book, with ten minutes to go, normal service is resumed !
Broadbent comes on for Beckett, Andy Ritchie still not really going for the win, a striker for a striker is the substitution.
Collins has scored ! it's 3-2 to Huddersfield only a minute or so to go, a great shot.
Booth booked as the game closes.
