Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Despite failing to win the previous eleven league fixtures, Bristol Rovers are still sitting in the middle of the standings. Their League One status is not in danger, but, on the other hand, they have slim chances of booking a place in the play-offs. The Pirates are eager to return to winning ways, and we believe that they will not have a better chance than this to do so.
Their rivals Blackpool have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding eight goals in total in the last four league matches, and they must be low on spirits following a 3-2 home defeat to Gillingham. Considering that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Ben Garner’s troops this time out. In their last meeting at Memorial Stadium Bristol Rovers crushed Blackpool 4-0.
