Bristol Rovers travel to London Road tomorrow to take on League One new boys Peterborough.
'We will go there with no fear whatsoever, we are confident we can contain them but we will need to do our jobs individually and more importantly as a team,' said Paul.
'They did well to come out of League Two last season, Darren has done a good job there, and over the summer he's made a number of shrewd signings that have strengthened their team.
'He's gelled the players together well, and they have aspirations of going through the division. They're probably not too pleased with the start they've made, and they'll be looking to beat us.
'It's live on Sky, and it's a great chance for us to bounce back from Tuesday. Our league position at the moment is ok, and a win this weekend will make it very decent.
'We feel Peterborough have weaknesses that we can exploit, but we have to be right defensively as a back four and as a team, because they have some very dangerous attacking threats.
'We need to impose our game, we need to pass the ball, and we need to retain possession. That is what we are about, and if we do that then we're confident we can come away with a result.'
Peterborough defender Craig Morgan will not feature as he is on international duty with the Welsh side.
The Peterborough striker has bags of pace.
Paul Trollope is expected to name the same starting line up that drew 2-2 away to Leeds United last week. New signing Jo Kuffour is set for a place on the bench.
Currently League One top scorer
