Bristol Rovers (A) Preview - Season 23/24, Episode 34

Things are going from bad to worse for United in their battle to avoid the drop - seven defeats in a row, is there any hope at all for the Blues to stay in League One next season.

In this week's episode of The Brunton Bugle, Lee and Dan look back on the hugely disappointing 4-0 defeat to Cambridge United, where United's defensive fragility was exposed once again. Can Paul Simpson restore the confidence to his squad ahead of the final run-in?

There's then a look ahead to this weekend's trip south to face Bristol Rovers - we speak to Charlie from the Talking Gas Podcast about what has been an eventful season for the Gas, albeit one that has them comfortably sitting in mid-table (sounds dreamy!).

On top of that, there's a news round-up and the usual Ex-Blues update.

Your host Lee Rooney is in Liverpool and is joined via the wonders of the internet by Dan MacLennan in Carlisle. You can find us on Twitter @bruntonbugle, Facebook (search for "Brunton Bugle") and email us with any questions, suggestions and feedback to
