WITH the new season almost upon us, it's time to cast an eye upon the teams in League Two for 2006-2007. Richard Hubbert turns his attention to Bristol Rovers

Key PlayerRichard Walker. Bagged 21 goals last season and if Junior Agogo does leave, then Rovers will look to Walker for goals more than ever.
StrengthsScoring goals. If they can keep the lethal strike force of Walker and Agogo together, they have an excellent chance of success. Midfielder Craig Disley is also one to watch - he grabbed eight last season. Also, as a big club with a figurehead like Lennie Lawrence, attracting any new players to the club will be easier than for other sides in League Two.
WeaknessesA slow defence. This caught them out on a number of occasions last year and Paul Trollope will want to ensure it changes. They also conceded the most goals away from home inside the top 12 last term. Consistency is also an issue - as soon as you thought Rovers would do something last year, they then went on to lose a few games in a row.
Prediction14th. Rovers have resisted wholesale squad changes, but unless they improve at the back if augurs to be another inconsistent season for the Pirates.

Next Team: Bury
