Football - Lockyer banned for Rovers

Bristol Rovers will be without Tom Lockyer when they host Portsmouth.

The young defender was booked for the fifth time this season in the midweek FA Cup replay with Crawley, a match that was abandoned with just over 15 minutes remaining, meaning he will sit out the clash with Pompey.

Manager John Ward recalled Ellis Harrison to the starting line-up for the first time since mid-October and the Welsh winger will hope he has done enough to keep his place while on-loan Preston striker Chris Beardsley was also handed a start.

Ward will have to decide whether to stick with Beardsley or recall former Wycombe forward Matt Harrold who was introduced as a second-half substitute.
