BT Sport have chosen to screen Forest Green's Bank Holiday Monday clash against Conference new boys Bristol Rovers.

The match at the New Lawn will kick-off at noon on Monday, August 25.

The local derby will mark the return of striker Matty Taylor, who quit the New Lawn for  the Memorial Ground last month. New Forest Green signing Rob Sinclair will got toe-to-toe with his brother Stuart, who joined the Gas from Salisbury City this summer.

Forest Green's last live TV game was surrounded in defeat and controversy, with boss Ady Pennock unhappy that the game was not abandoned due to lightning and a partially waterlogged pitch.

Forest Green are due to fly back from Scotland today ahead of their first home pre-season friendly against Birmingham City on Tuesday.
