Cheltenham vs Bristol Rovers Tips and Prediction
Cheltenham had been having a difficult start to the season, which was to be expected given that they had lost their manager in the summer and that this was only their second season in League One. However, they had begun to gain momentum in their last few games before losing to promotion-hunting Sheffield Wednesday.
Wade Elliott’s team has enjoyed playing at home lately, going undefeated in front of their supporters since August, winning three league games, keeping two clean sheets, and defeating Walsall in the EFL Trophy.
Despite the squad’s season having started with very few victories, goalkeeper Luke Southwood signed from Reading in the summer. His play has been strong, earning up wins for the team.
With only 11 goals this season, Cheltenham has struggled to score goals, ranking joint-third poorest in the league in terms of attack.
Alfie May hasn’t played since being taken off on a stretcher in their victory over Shrewsbury; there are rumors that he could be out for long to eight weeks. They will be hoping that he can recapture his form from last season, when he scored 23 goals.
Bristol Rovers have won their previous three games in a row across all leagues, including a victory over Crystal Palace Under-21s in the EFL Trophy and their most recent triumph.
Aaron Collins’ efforts have undoubtedly not been impacted by the move from League Two to League One; he opened the season with six goals and five assists, adding to his 16 goals and two assists from the previous year. According to the statistics, he has been playing more of a playmaker this season, but he is still scoring at a respectable clip.
Ryan Loft has benefited from the move up to League One as well; he only started twice last season but has already started seven games this year and scored four goals, providing manager Barton a reliable forward line option.
Since Bristol Rovers have won their last two league games, they are well-positioned to perform well in this match.
Although we anticipate Cheltenham to put on a strong display, a draw appears to be the most likely outcome given their previous loss to a tough Sheffield Wednesday team and their strong home form.
