Saturday's Youth Team match against Bristol Rovers is their second match in their set of League Cup Group games. As with the earlier League match against the Gas, this match will be played at the sports complex known as AXA Sports and Social Club. Note that this is a change from the original venue and Rovers are planning to use the AXA venue for the rest of the season. The ground is adjacent to Clifton Rugby Club and so you'll find signposts for both venues will serve you right up until the final 50 yards. Kick-off is 10.30a.m.
The complex is situated just off the Cribbs Causeway dual carriageway (A4018) that runs from M5 Junction 17 into the City Centre. If you are coming in from the M5 then be aware that you will need to go past the rugby club then double-back upon yourself at the next roundabout.
From the M5, take the A4018 (Bristol West). Travel down the dual carriageway (Cribbs Causeway) to the Crow Lane roundabout (Old Crow Public House). Do a 180 degree turn at this roundabout back towards the M5. As you approach next roundabout, turn left into lane just before the roundabout (marked by a brown sign – Clifton RFC). The entrance into the 'AXA Sports Ground' is opposite the end of the lane.
If you are coming from Bristol City Centre, then go straight over the Crow Lane roundabout towards the M5 then use the same directions as before.
Address: AXA Sports Centre, Cribbs Causeway, Bristol, BS10 7TB.
The Glovers go into their game having won last week's opening group match against Torquay United by an 8-2 scoreline. Unsurprisingly that result means that they topped the group after the opening matches. However, they will face a Rovers side that beat them 2-1 two weeks ago in a League match, so Saturday's match will be a quick chance to get revenge. Rovers lost their opening Cup Group game to Exeter City last week by a 4-3 scoreline, suggesting Saturday's match will be a tight affair.
