Bristol Rovers vs Sunderland Match Preview

Sunderland’s hopes of automatic promotion have been dented by too many draws recently and that could be the case again on their trip to Bristol Rovers.

Before Tuesday’s home match against Gillingham (result not known at the time of writing) the Black Cats had taken just a solitary point in seven of their last nine games, winning the other two.

From looking as though they had every chance of finishing in the all-important top two in League One, Sunderland were slipping off the pace being set by Luton and Barnsley.

And they may not find it easy against a Bristol Rovers side who have improved significantly since Graham Coughlan replaced Darrell Clarke as manager just before Christmas.

Ironically, Coughlan’s first game in charge was a 2-1 defeat in the reverse fixture to this, but subsequently Rovers have lost only one more of 11 league and cup matches and they are making a good fist of escaping from the relegation zone.

These clubs will meet again in the Checkatrade Trophy semi-finals next month, also in Bristol, but this fixture may not shed too much light on the outcome of that showdown as a draw looks highly likely on current form.
