Bristol Rovers or Draw

Our first Bristol Rovers vs Sheff Wed prediction is for the hosts to avoid a defeat. Despite playing only for pride the Pirates remain focused and they have been near-perfect in their last 3 games (W2 D1). At the same time, promotion-chasing Wednesday failed to win any of their last 5 away league matches (D2 L3) and won just once in the last 8 rounds (D4 L3).

Under 1.5 Bristol Goals

We might be backing Rovers to do well but we don’t see them scoring many goals. That’s why our next Bristol Rovers vs Derby prediction is for the hosts to score fewer than 2 goals. The Pirates failed to score more than 1 goal in all of their last 9 home matches. Meanwhile, on all their recent struggles Wednesday conceded more than 1 in only 4 of their last 17 away games.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our final Bristol Rovers vs Sheff Wed prediction is for this to be a low-scoring clash with fewer than 3 total goals in it. The last 2 H2Hs had fewer than 3 goals. So did all of Rovers’ last 5 games and 2 of Wednesday’s last 4.

Bristol Rovers vs Sheff Wed Lineups and Team News

Bristol Rovers

Rovers converted a late penalty to save a 1-1 home draw vs Derby on Saturday. The display wasn’t pretty but it must be said the Pirates forced luck to help them and they have now collected 7 points from their last 3 matches despite playing only for pride.

Coach Barton has selection issues for the coming match with 3 important players set to miss. Captain Coutts, the main playmaker, will miss the rest of the season. With Rossiter also sidelined the options in midfield are limited. Left-back Anderton is also out of action as he battles cancer. At least the team’s best centre-back Quansah is back after a lengthy ban and he could even start.

Sheff Wed

Wednesday’s struggles continued with a 2-3 away defeat vs Burton, another team stuck in mid-table and playing only for pride. The Owls failed to contain their hosts and they continued to look very shaky in defence. This is the main reason why only 1 win was achieved in the last 8 rounds. Remain only a point outside the automatic promotion though so the motivation is still high.

Undoubtedly a lot to do with the recent struggles is the fact that 6 potential starters continue to be missing injured. Among them, the top goalscorer Windass, the main playmaker Byers and the starting left-back James. With so many important players absent not likely to rotate the squad much.
