Bristol Rovers Preview – Can the Pirates end winless streak?

Bristol City have won two, drawn two and lost five of their opening nine League One fixtures, collecting eight points from a possible 27. Joey Barton’s men are without a win in six league games.

Bristol Rovers started well, winning two of their opening three. However, after back-to-back victories over Burton Albion and Oxford United, Rovers have lost two and drawn two of six. Last time out, they were hammered 6-3 at home by Lincoln City.

Our betting prediction:
Over 2.5 Goals

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1233 GMT, Friday 22 September)

Bristol Rovers will be desperate for all three points from this one having not tasted a league victory since matchday three. Despite being on home turf, they are the slight second favourites with the bookies.

Accrington Stanley Preview – Will Accy build on Cheltenham win?

John Coleman’s Accrington Stanley are just two points above Bristol Rovers in the current League One table. So far, Accy have won two, drawn four and lost three of their opening ten matches.

After no wins in six league games and three losses on the bounce, Accrington were desperate for a win when they faced Cheltenham Town last weekend. Sean McConville netted within the first minute to give Stanley a much-needed 1-0 victory.
