Bristol Rovers will be hoping for a better result following the 0-1 league loss in their previous game against Carlisle United. Taking their previous 6 matches leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them, a wager on BTTS would’ve been a loss.
On the contrary, Bantams reside at the 14th position on the table with a 47 points. Of the 39 matches played, they won on 11 games while drawing and losing 14 games each. They are looking to win 3 consecutive away league games for the first time since a run of four in December 2017.
