Bristol Rovers to Win

It is difficult to pick a winner out of the two outfits as both Bristol Rovers and Cheltenham are struggling to register points. Barring their club-friendly victories on the road, Cheltenham has only won once in their last six away trips. For the Rovers, the statistics read one victory in their last four home fixtures. We back the Rovers to succeed in this meeting as they have claimed bragging rights over their rivals in three of the five duels they have had at the Memorial Stadium.

Over 2.5 Goals

The last meeting between Bristol Rovers and Cheltenham Town saw three goals, all scored by the hosts. Going back further, their last five meetings have largely seen excesses in favour of the attackers’ pursuits. They have struggled to trouble the scorers in their league outings but should give a better account of their abilities in this meeting. Couple this with their error-prone defending and we should have the attackers having a field day.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

If we are seeking defensive stability, we will not be able to find it between either Bristol Rovers or Cheltenham. In the combined 11 competitive fixtures, they have conceded on 11 occasions. Consequently, it is difficult to assume that they will be able to keep a clean sheet in this fixture.

Bristol Rovers vs Cheltenham Fixture Preview

Bristol Rovers

The notorious Joey Barton will be losing patience with his Bristol Rovers charges. He would be seeking an improved result in the League Cup following yet another defeat in League Two. Mansfield Town compounded their worries with a 2-1 victory, their six in succession. Martyn Starnes and the rest of the board will be looking at this fixture with interest and the probable improvements made, especially at the back. Fortunately, Barton has a complete squad to pick from as there are no fitness concerns for Bristol Rovers.

Cheltenham

Michael Duff’s men could one manage a 1-1 draw against Crewe Alexandra in their League One opening round fixture. Andy Williams equalized for the Robins after they had gone down to a Mikael Mandron strike. This fixture saw a continuation of their defensive issues, where they have conceded in five of their last six league commitments. While their backline has struggled, their forwards have not fared well in this period, scoring at an average of 1.33 goals.
