Bristol Rovers will look to extend the loan deal of Cambridge United striker Rory Gaffney, according to The Bristol Post.

Gaffney joined Rovers on a short-term loan deal which is set to expire in January but the striker has struck up a good understanding with team mate Matty Taylor in attack and Rovers’ Manager Darrell Clarke is now hoping to extend the deal.

The 26-year-old Irishman scored both goals in The Pirates’ 2-1 home victory over Leyton Orient on Bank Holiday Monday which extended the club’s unbeaten run to 6 matches.

Gaffney started his career at League of Ireland club Limerick and impressed scouts from Cambridge United to earn a move to English professional football in 2014.

The striker has suffered a torrid start to his career at The Abbey Stadium after suffering with a catalogue of injury problems but is now enjoying his fresh start at The Memorial Stadium playing in the blue and white of Bristol Rovers.

After taking a couple of months to adapt to their return to the Football League, Bristol Rovers are now becoming a serious force to be reckoned with in League 2 and are chasing a Play Off spot.
