Bristol Rovers vs Cheltenham: top free betting tips
Reeling off from their 1-1 draw against Lincoln, Bristol Rovers turn their attention to the EFL Trophy. The League One outfit takes on the challenge of fellow strugglers, Cheltenham in the first group game.
Match result prediction: Bristol Rovers to win
With just one win between them after 14 competitive fixtures, it is difficult to pick a winner from these two sides. However, it is Cheltenham who are without a win thus far and have racked up six losses and a draw. The Rovers can profit from the visitors' hapless form and we expect them to claim the three points on offer.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
Bristol Rovers have only scored six goals as many league outings. On the other hand, Cheltenham's have yet to hit the back of the net in the 2023/24 campaign. With both sides struggling to score goals and Bristol only scoring two goals once this season, we expect an under 2.5 goals conclusion to this meeting.
Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Bristol Rovers
Bristol have not scored freely this season as evidenced by their haul of six goals. Their best return in a match has been two strikes once while hitting the back of the net once on four occasions. With Cheltenham conceding 10 goals in the campaign, their defence has not disappointed that much. Based on this, we expect a low-scoring outcome with the Rovers triumphing with a 1-0 scoreline.
Bristol Rovers vs Cheltenham: form, recent games, and news
Bristol Rovers preview
The Rovers turn their attention towards the EFL Trophy after a dismal run in League One. They have struggled to put together results, with just one win in the campaign thus far. The fateful result was followed by two successive defeats and the fans have started to get anxious about the upcoming campaign. A win over fellow League One rivals can silence the critics.
If Bristol's season has been dismal, woeful is the adjective to describe Cheltenham's outings in the 2023/24 campaign. After seven competitive outings, they are without a win and have accumulated six defeats. It carries off from their late preseason outings, after earning four wins to start their preparations. They have struggled to score goals and need to address their misgivings in this department.
