Bristol Rovers to Win
Bristol Rovers left their early-season troubles behind during the week when they powered to a 2-0 EFL Trophy victory over Cheltenham at the Memorial Stadium thanks to strikes either side of the break from Sam Nicholson and Harvey Saunders. A second straight victory for The Pirates could be on the cards this week when they host a Crawly outfit that conceded a whopping 12 goals in their last two away assignments.
Over 2.5 Goals
Crawley’s alarmingly leaky defence could be in for a long afternoon again on Saturday and the goals markets could be worth pursuing a result. Four of Town’s last five fixtures in all competitions produced over 2.5 goals and with the holes in their backline still unplugged, more excitement should follow when they take on a Rovers team armed with fresh confidence.
Over 1.5 Bristol Rovers Team Goals
Crawley’s last two away tests produced nightmarish results and after Town were smashed 6-3 at Fleetwood in League Two, they shipped another six at Charlton in their midweek EFL Trophy duel. Successive hammerings will have softened the resolve of the Crawley defence and Bristol Rovers are priced generously in the over 1.5 team goals market with that in mind.
Bristol Rovers vs Crawley: Match Preview
Bristol Rovers’ triumph over Cheltenham in the EFL Trophy provided a much-needed tonic in midweek and with their self-belief reserves topped up, The Pirates will be hoping to plunder their second League Two victory of the season on Saturday. Rovers won their last league tussle at the Memorial Stadium against Oldham (1-0) and they will hope to harness home advantage again this weekend.
Crawley sandwiched a drab 0-0 draw at home to Northampton in between their harrowing annihilations on the road at Forest Green and Charlton and John Yems’ Reds have won only once in six attempts overall since the summer. Yems – famous for his post-game rants – has had plenty to moan about of late and unfortunately for the 62-year-old, an upturn in fortunes doesn’t look imminent.
