Fleetwood vs Bristol Rovers: Prediction

After sharing the spoils with Gillingham (1-1) and Rotherham (2-2), Fleetwood Town managed to record a 3-2 comeback win at Rochdale. The Fishermen are having a decent run of form, having earned eight points from their last five league matches.

With the W-D-L record of 10-4-6 and a game or two in hand over their rivals, Joey Barton’s side are 7th in the League One standings, one point behind their next opponent.

Fleetwood Town are one of the best home teams in the competition with seven wins, two draws and one defeat, scoring 1.70 goals per match, whilst conceding 0.80. They’ve won three of their last four home matches.

Ben Garner’s men will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing 1-2 home defeat at the hands of lowly AFC Wimbledon. Prior to that, Bristol Rovers enjoyed a six-game unbeaten run, beating the likes of Rochdale (2-1), Shrewsbury (4-3), Southend Utd. (4-2) and Ipswich Town (2-1), together with two draws with Portsmouth (2-2) and Peterborough (0-0).

With 35 points to their name, the Pirates are two points off of second place that brings automatic promotion to Championship.

The guests have five wins and four losses on the road this season, averaging 1.33 goals scored per bout and conceding 1.56 in return. Bristol Rovers have won five of their last six away fixtures.

I’m inclined to pick over 2.5 goals as my main bet here as both sides have been involved in high-scoring games recently.

Eight of the last nine Fleetwood games at Highbury had at least three goals scored and BTTS – Yes, whilst the Pirates have an average of 3.71 goals over the last seven league outings (15 goals scored, 11 conceded).

It looks like we’re in for an entertaining clash and with a 2-1, 2-2 hunch, I’ll take BTTS – Yes as well.

Fleetwood Town vs Bristol Rovers: Betting Tips

  • Over 2.5 goals @ 2.09
  • Both teams To Score – Yes @ 1.95.
