Bristol Rovers vs Brighton Match Preview
Brighton have seen a strong finish to their pre-season and they opened the new Premier League campaign with four points in two games, now having a busy schedule as they look to build on a four-match unbeaten streak – with a League Cup trip to Bristol just days after the league clash against Southampton.
Seagulls have beaten Watford (0-3) and only held West Ham to a 1-1 draw with a second-half equalizer from Leandro Trossard, after their first-half goal was disallowed for an offside Dan Burns found himself in. Graham Potter has a lot to be happy about, though, and will surely want to build on such performances here.
Bristol have been more unpredictable early in their new campaign and they have four points to their name after four League One outings, with Tuesday’s win over Tranmere (2-0) giving them wind at their backs as they keep proving themselves a tough nut to crack at Memorial Stadium.
Rovers have struggled for such consistency on the road but they come into the weekend clash against Oxford with two wins and a draw earned in three home outings, which will be a great confidence booster. However, coping with Premier League rivals should prove more of a task despite their perfect defensive record so far.
We will thus back Brighton to snatch a ticket to the 3rd Round with a win here, which comes at 8/11 with Unibet and has caught the eye of many in the know despite a tough challenge we expect from Graham Coughlan on the day.
We do expect goals and we feel Brighton will have to score an extra goal if they’re to do so, as we now back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with MansionBet. We have seen Seagulls enjoying such clashes lately and we hope for more of the same on their end now.
