Rochdale vs Bristol Rovers Prediction
The host has maintained their composure at home with three unbeaten matches lately. Along with that, the Dale has lost only one in the last five home matches in major contests. Moreover, they are coming off of a double win in the league hoe clashes in this season.
Meanwhile, they will be facing the Pirates who didn’t have much loot in their recent trips away from home. Evidently, the guest has won only two of the seven away fixtures in this season. Also, the morale of the players will be down with the defeat against Doncaster in the previous trip on the road. Moreover, the Pirates have lost four out of six league away clashes.
Besides that, the host has been defeated only once at home in the 13 h2h matches with the Bristol troops. Also, their previous encounter awarded an away win for the Dale. Hence, the hosting contingent will have more confidence in the upcoming event at Spotland.
Although Dale is pretty well behind the visiting side in the league table, they have shown improvement in their form. On the contrary, a sudden dip in form for the Pirates has put them down in the argument. Hence, with the ground advantage, the host has more chance of winning the game. Even so, it is safer to go with a double chance.
