Bromley vs Bristol Rovers Betting Tips – FA Cup, 19th November 7.45pm

League One side Bristol Rovers will be sweating a little bit now as they have to go to London for this replay. That was after letting a lead slip at the Memorial Stadium in the final ten minutes of the first encounter. The Pirates are still favourites to get through but could face an uncomfortable night against the non-leaguers. Read our predictions for Bromley vs Bristol Rovers.

Bromley News and Form – Can Bromley beat Bristol Rovers?

This is a fascinating FA Cup replay in London. Bromely held on well in Bristol in the first meeting and didn’t fall behind until there was less than 15 minutes left on the clock. They did not crumble and give up, they battled on and equalised just five minutes later and get another bite of the cherry to move ahead. National League side Bromley have failed to win any of their last four games at Hayes Lane (D3 L1) so they are not in hot form.

However, if you look at their overall home record this season it is a W7 D4 L1 return that they have put under their belt. It was a home win over Aldershot, a 4-3 success which saw them qualify for the first round proper of this year’s competition. Their best performances in the FA Cup have seen them reach the second round (three times in their club history), so a victory here would see them equal that club best. The last time they got there was back in the 1945/46 season, so it’s been a while.

Bristol Rovers News and Form – Can The Rovers win FA Cup tie with Bromley?

This really looks like one of those tricky and tough FA Cup away ties that is just not going to be comfortable for Rovers. They took the lead late in the first meeting at home and will have fully expected to have closed out the tie. But they couldn’t and now have to face this away game at Hayes Lane. Bristol Rovers have taken a W3 D1 L2 record in their last five games and they have won three of their last four fixtures out on their travels (L1).

Their overall away record this season is W3 L4 and this is their first road game for the season which hasn’t been a league fixture. What makes this replay interesting, and this tie overall is that Rovers really don’t have much FA Cup form. They have only taken one win, an extra-time success over Crawley in 2016 in their last nine games in the tournament. They have failed to win any of their last four FA Cup away too (D2 L2).
