Bristol Rovers entertain Sunderland at the Memorial Stadium this Saturday in a big fixture in EFL League One.

Bristol Rovers Preview – Fourth reverse on the spin for the Pirates?

Joey Barton’s Bristol Rovers are in a perilously position in the League One table with just nine games to play. The Gas are in the relegation zone, two points behind 20th-place Northampton Town in the race for survival.

Rovers have picked up just nine wins from 37 league matches this term, losing 21 times along the away. No side in England’s third tier have suffered more defeats. Since a 4-1 home win over Accrington Stanley earlier in the month, Barton’s boys have taken just one point from their subsequent four.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1115 GMT, Friday 26 March)

Bristol Rovers head into this crunch match having lost three games on the trot. With time running out, the Pirates desperately need to put a positive run together. Can they shock high-flying Sunderland on Saturday?

Sunderland Preview – Comfortable away win for the Black Cats?

Lee Johnson is doing a fine job at the Stadium of Light. Since arriving in early December, the former Bristol City manager has got Sunderland’s promotion bid well and truly back on track. The Black Cats have amassed 64 points from 35 games.

Sunderland have won five and drawn one of their last six in all competitions. Two weeks ago, the Black Cats beat Tranmere Rovers in the 2021 EFL Trophy final at Wembley Stadium. After a 2-1 defeat at Shrewsbury Town in February, which remains their only league reverse since January, Sunderland have won seven and drawn two of their following nine League One fixtures.

After drawing 1-1 with promotion rivals Lincoln City last Saturday, Johnson’s troops will be targeting maximum points from this one. They are the clear favourites with the bookies at 7/10.


Bristol Rovers vs Sunderland Betting Advice

Back in September, Bristol Rovers held Sunderland to a draw at the Stadium of Light in the reverse fixture. An early Luke Leahy penalty gave Rovers the lead, which they held until the 82nd minute. Chris Maguire levelled before George Dobson’s late red card.

Sunderland have a good recent record against the Bristol club, winning five of the last seven. Rovers have picked up just one victory over the Black Cats since 1992.


Key Facts – Bristol Rovers vs Sunderland Betting Tip

  • Sunderland have won five of the last seven meetings
  • Bristol Rovers have taken just one point from the last 12 on offer
  • The Black Cats have won seven of their previous nine League One fixtures


Both teams need the points for completely different reasons. Bristol Rovers are living dangerously close to the edge in terms of relegation, while Sunderland seek automatic promotion back to the EFL Championship.

This promises to be an entertaining encounter at the Memorial Stadium, but we fancy Sunderland to nick the points. Back the away win and both teams to score at 3/1.

Charlie Wyke is having a sensational season at the Stadium of Light, netting 27 league and cup goals. Wyke has scored four in his last six, and the Sunderland striker is the 20/21 favourite to notch anytime on Saturday.
