Salford will open the scoring
Salford will likely find the net first in this match. They have been on the front foot recently and with a better defence than that of Bristol Rovers, the hosts should be a difficult opponent to beat in this match. While Bristol Rovers leaked 11 goals in the last five games, Salford leaked 7 goals in as many matches. The hosts leaked only three goals in the last three matches while Bristol leaked double that number in as many games.
This fixture will likely yield more than two goals. Bristol’s leaking backline is why we have settled on this market. The match could end in favour of either side because Salford is not as good as Bristol Rovers when it comes to scoring goals.
Game Preview: Bristol Rovers Fighting their Way back to League One
For more information about this match, check out our team previews below.
Salford City is currently ranked 16th on League Two table with 20 points, only two places and two points below relegated side, Bristol Rovers. This will be the first meeting between the two teams. So far, Salford has relatively impressed at home, bagging 3W, 4D and 2L. A strong defensive showing on home soil has seen Salford leak only six goals at the Peninsula. It is a record the hosts will rely on to prevent Bristol Rovers from scoring many goals in this fixture. It is also why we think Salford will score the first goal in this fixture.
Bristol Rovers has 2W, 2D and 1L in the last five matches. With 2W, 2D and 2L on the toad thus far, the biggest task for the visitors is to get their third away victory this season and fifth victory of the season. However, we think defensive challenges could make things difficult for the visitors. They look like the side that will concede the first goal in this match.
