FOREST Green fans are being urged to snap-up the remaining tickets  for the West  Country derby against Bristol Rovers on Bank Holiday Monday.

Around 3,150 tickets have already been sold for the BT Sport televised Vanarama Conference clash, which would surpass the 3,021 attendance against Oxford United in October 2006.

Rovers' largest  home attendance came in the third round of the FA Cup in January 2009, when 4,836 watched Jim Harvey’s men lose 4-3 to Derby County.

Just under 200 allocated seats remain in the East Stand for the game while the South Stand Terrace has room for around 200 more supporters too.

Bristol Rovers have confirmed that as of Wednesday morning they have sold over 1,700 tickets for the clash.

The match is all ticket and tickets will therefore not be available to buy at the ground on the day of the game.

Supporters are reminded of the Park-n-Ride scheme that will be in place for the fixture. Parking is at the Renishaw's car park in Woodchester and is priced at £4 per car.

Tickets can be purchased online via the club shop and printed off at home, with the QR barcode able to be swiped at turnstiles in order to enter the ground.

They can also be bought over the phone, before match day, by calling 01453 834860 and then collected on matchday, or by visiting the club in person prior to match day.

Opening hours are Monday-Friday 9am until 3pm.
