Bristol Rovers vs Accrington Match Preview
Bristol Rovers will be looking to bounce back from a 2-0 loss at Burton last weekend that ended a two-game winning run. Graham Coughlan is the man in the dugout and in his first full season in charge has them in 14th though the expected goals table feels they should be as high as ninth.
At the Memorial Stadium, the Gas have been strong this season taking seven points from a possible nine with defeats of Oxford and Tranmere and a draw with Wycombe. Jonson Clarke-Harris has netted in each of the last two at this ground in the league.
Accrington picked up their first three points of the campaign at the weekend as they won at home to MK Dons 2-1 being the final score. John Coleman continues to work miracles keeping the club at this level and he has them 20th while the expected goals data has them in 18th.
Away from the Crown Ground, Stanley have just one point this season losing at Lincoln and Fleetwood and drawing with AFC Wimbledon. It continues on their away struggles from last season and they have won just two of their last 14 on the road.
These two sides might not finish a million miles apart in the table but the respective home and away form of the pair means that a home victory is the bet here. Rovers have taken seven points from three here this season while Stanley are poor travellers. The hosts have conceded just one home goal and the visitors have netted just once on the road so extend the odds out by backing them to win to nil.
