📊 Form Guide

Sunderland DLDLDW

Sunderland will be looking for another win after a 8-1 EFL Trophy victory over Aston Villa U23s.

It has been a rare occasion in recent times where Sunderland haven’t conceded. The facts show that The Black Cats have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 7 goals during that time.

Bristol Rovers LLLWLD

In their previous fixture, Bristol Rovers drew 2-2 in the EFL Trophy tie with Walsall.

The numbers tell their own story, and Bristol Rovers have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 12 goals overall. Defensively, The Pirates have been far from perfect. That pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this next game, however.

👥 Head to head

Inspecting their past head-to-head clashes dating back to 16/01/1993 shows that Sunderland have won 4 of them & Bristol Rovers 1, with the number of drawn matches standing at 1.

A total of 16 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 11 from The Black Cats and 5 coming from The Pirates. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.67.

The last league match between these clubs was League One match day 18 on 10/03/2020 which ended up with the score at Bristol Rovers 2-0 Sunderland.

The match was refereed by Charles Breakspear.

📋 Team News: Sunderland

Sunderland manager Phil Parkinson has no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash with a completely healthy squad ready to go.

🗞️ Team News: Bristol Rovers

Thanks to a completely healthy group available for selection, Bristol Rovers manager Ben Garner does not have any fitness worries whatsoever before this game.

⚡ Prediction

We’re of the opinion that Bristol Rovers will have to perform well to put one past this Sunderland lineup who we reckon will get the vital goal that wins it.

We therefore think that it’s going to be a very competitive game with a 1-0 winning margin for Sunderland at the end of this game.

Should be a close one.
