The hosts, who will hardly make their way to an instant comeback to the Championship football, lost back-to-back league ties against Southend United and Wycombe Wanderers. Such thread dropped them down to 18th place after a decent runoff four games without a loss beforehand.

They now go up against the Pirates who are winless in last three league ties. They’ve failed to score a goal along the way, shipping just one at the other end, though.

Burton vs Bristol Rovers: Head-to-head

This will be the first head to head encounter between these two likes in four years.

Burton have a chance to make it all square at three wins apiece with a three-pointer here.

Home court advantage plays a massive role when these two sides come across each other.

Five of six H2H outings saw home teams snatching the spoils.

Burton vs Bristol Rovers: Prediction

The Brewers should come into this favourites knowing about Bristol’s attacking woes. The visitors own league’s weakest attacking record with just nine goals scored in twelve games so far. Last three games they played on the road saw just a single goal in total, meaning the fans at Pirelli will likely be short on goalmouth action on Saturday.

Burton do have a much more exciting attacking line-up featuring the likes of Liam Boyce and Marvin Sordell. This duo should make the difference in Burton’s favour and the home win looks to be a decent call at 2.05 odds here. Five of six H2H games between the two sides saw home sides winning. Given Bristol’s current spell of form, it’s hard to imagine a different scenario here.
