Rovers stay at home in quest for points

Neil Mustoe’s Tuffley Rovers squad will host Mangotsfield United on Tuesday evening, as they continue a run of home league fixtures and also look to secure a fifth game unbeaten in all competitions.

When Rovers visited United in early November, they took an early lead through Shayne Bradley before a second half collapse saw them defeated 4-2, with Dan Beasley the other Rovers scorer on that occasion.

Mustoe’s side are on an improved run of form, despite sitting bottom of the Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division table, and have gone three league games unbeaten, with a win in their last away game, at Bradford Town, followed by two home draws with Wantage Town and Thornbury Town. In-between they secured a place in the GF Challenge Trophy semi-final after defeating Cribbs 7-6 on penalties, after the game finished 0-0 after 90 minutes.

Injuries are likely to rule Kieran Alder, Ashley Davies, Sammie Hicks, Shayne Bradley and Liam Smith out of contention against The Mangos, but Ryley Mace will return, whilst Joel White and Jamie Martin – joint managers at Brockworth Albion – have been added to the squad.

Kick-off is 7:45pm at Glevum Park on Tuesday, 7 March 2023.
