Bristol Rovers manager Darrell Clarke has confirmed that midfielder Stuart Sinclair's knee injury is not as bad as the club had first feared.

Sinclair, 27, who picked up the injury during Saturday's 1-0 win at Gateshead, will be out for a minimum of six weeks.

"It is the best possible news we could have had really. We'd feared a cruciate injury," Clarke told BBC Radio Bristol.

"He will pick himself up and he will be working as hard as he can to try and get back before the end of the season."
