Bristol Rovers vs Notts County - Bristol Rovers appealing Jermaine Easter's red card



Posted Tuesday, October 20, 2015 by PA

Bristol Rovers have appealed against the red card shown to striker Jermaine Easter during Saturday's Sky Bet League Two win over Mansfield.

Easter was given a straight red for allegedly headbutting a Mansfield player just before half-time in the 2-1 victory and Rovers will find out if they are successful in their appeal against a three-match ban on Tuesday afternoon.

Rovers boss Darrell Clarke will be keeping his fingers crossed for good news about his joint top scorer, and also about the fitness of another of his forwards, Billy Bodin, who was forced to miss Saturday's match through injury.

If Easter is unavailable then Ellis Harrison, who came on at half-time at Field Mill, could start against Notts County as Rovers look to make it five wins on the trot in league and cup.

Notts have no real injury problems any longer as players begin to return to contention.

Midfielder Rob Milsom, a summer signing from Rotherham, has yet to make his debut for the club because of a knee problem but he is back in training and closing in on a return.

The same can be said of winger Kyle De Silva, who has recovered from the thigh injury he sustained during the first month of the season.

With more than 30 players at his disposal, Magpies manager Ricardo Moniz has one of the biggest squad in League Two - highlighted by the fact Julian Jenner was left out against Yeovil at the weekend. The Dutch midfielder will hope to be involved again on Tuesday night.
