Bristol Rovers will check on the fitness of Lee Mansell and Liam Lawrence as they prepare to face Cardiff in the EFL Cup first round.

Both missed Saturday’s League One opening-day defeat at Scunthorpe because of injury.

Boss Paul Trollope is not expected to make sweeping changes to his Cardiff side for the trip to his former club.

However, Fabio is likely to remain absent amid ongoing speculation over a possible move to Middlesbrough.

Cardiff will travel to Scunthorpe if they win the tie, but the competition’s seeding structure means Rovers would face Chelsea in round two if they beat their Championship opponents.
