Gaffer On The Box

ARGYLE manager Ryan Lowe will be attending Bromley v Bristol Rovers tonight to discover first-hand our next opponents in the FA Cup.

The gaffer has been invited to work as a guest pundit by BT Sport for the first round replay on Tuesday evening, with the victor hosting the Pilgrims in the second round.

“I’ve been kindly asked by BT to be on the TV, so I’ll be down there analysing and talking,” he said. “I’ll be there to watch and it will be a great opportunity for Bromley because they are flying high, but Bristol Rovers are too.”

Bromley earned an impressive draw at Rovers in the first tie and are enjoying a good campaign in the National League, but Graham Coughlan’s Pirates have also started their season well and currently sit just one point outside the play-off positions in Sky Bet League One.

“I think Bromley are going well in the National League,” said Ryan. “At Bristol Rovers, Graham is doing a great job there and we know it is going to be tough.

“To get through to the third round, it’s never been easy, has it. People saying that you want a team at home with a lesser league team, sometimes that’s a scalp isn’t it. I’ll be down there doing the game at Bromley with BT, so I will get a good insight and get a good watch of them, but whoever it is, it is.”
