Bristol Rovers defender Peter Hartley has been sidelined for up to three months with a foot injury.

The 28-year-old centre-back, who signed on a free transfer from Plymouth in June, has started 17 League One games for Rovers so far this season.

He picked up the injury in Monday's 4-1 loss at Charlton Athletic.

Meanwhile, on-loan midfielder Charlie Colkett, 20, has been recalled to his parent club Chelsea, after 17 Rovers appearances in all competitions.
