Bristol Rovers (H) Preview - Season 23/24, Episode 20

United's inability to get a good run of form going has continued as they suffered consecutive defeats at Cambridge and Orient, dropping into the relegation zone and out of the FA Cup at the first attempt - how can Paul Simpson get United going after a stodgy start to life in League One?

In this week's episode of The Brunton Bugle, Lee is joined again by Adam Tiffen (@adamtiffen18 on Twitter) to look back on the losses against Cambridge and the O's. How can United get a bit more of potency into their attack? And how badly will Callum Guy's affect us until the January transfer window?

That's followed by a look ahead to this weekend's clash with Bristol Rovers at Brunton Park - are the Pirates one of the biggest disappointments so far in the division this season, considering the attacking talent they have at their disposal.

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 Adam Tiffen in Carlisle. You can find us on Twitter @bruntonbugle, Facebook (search for "Brunton Bugle") and email us with any questions, suggestions and feedback to
