Bristol Rovers vs Rotherham Prediction & Match Preview

Bristol Rovers vs Rotherham
England – League 1
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Memorial Stadium (Bristol).

Bristol Rovers picked up what was only their fourth win in the League one last week when they managed to get the better of AFC Wimbledon with an impressive 3-1 scoreline. The squad further extended their positive run of form in their most recent matchup in the EFL Trophy by pulling off a narrow 2-1 win over the Chelsea U21.

Rotherham have not been faring well in their respective clashes building up to this tie and have just one measly win to boast of from their last six games in all competitions. Their previous match at home saw them play out a far from exciting stalemate alongside Shrewsbury while on the road, they had to share the spoils with Sunderland after both teams scored no more than a goal apiece.

With the visitors having two games in hand, Bristol Rovers will be settling for nothing less than the win in this one as they are just three points above Rotherham in the ladder.

Bristol Rovers vs Rotherham Head to head (h2h)

  • Five of their past nine games have ended in favor of Bristol City.

  • Three of their previous five clashes have been high scoring ones with over 2.5 goals on the charts.
  • The final scores have been tied just once in their past four fixtures.

Bristol Rovers vs Rotherham Prediction

The away side are experiencing a sharp decline in form on the road, and have not tasted success in their last two outings in a row. Furthermore, Rotherham have come out on top just once in their last four visits to this venue.

Although the hosts are unbeaten at home this season, it needs saying that three of their last five League one clashes here have seen Bristol Rovers salvage no more than a point in each. Taking into account that Rotherham have also managed to hold the hosts to a draw in one of their previous four trips here, a double chance favoring Bristol Rovers is most certainly the best punt in this one.

In addition, both teams have got their names on the scoresheet in their past four head to head clashes here. Given that Rotherham have also been consistent in finding the back of the net at least once in their last five outings, expect neither side to walk away with a clean sheet intact at the end of the ninety minutes.
