Defender Lee Brown has signed a contract extension at Bristol Rovers to keep him at the League Two club until the summer of 2014.

Woodards, who also joined the club last summer from MK Dons, broke his leg in the final game of last season and was expected to be out of action for at least 12 weeks.

Chairman Nick Higgs told the club website:external-link "Danny is a key player for Bristol Rovers.

Speaking about Brown's deal, manager Mark McGhee added: "Lee has come back for pre-season training in top condition.
