Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Bristol Rovers will be looking to put an end to their four-game losing run in the League One when they take on Sunderland at Memorial Stadium on Matchday 18. The Pirates are stuck in the middle of the table, and seeing that they have little to play for in the season finale, we do not believe that home win should be considered. Midfielder Ogogo remains on the sidelines through suspension for the hosts.
As for the away team, they were on the verge of beating Gillingham in their last league fixture, with the Gills scoring the equalizer in the dying minutes of the match. The Black Cats aim to get back on course as soon as possible, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to do so. In the first half of the season Sunderland defeated Bristol Rovers 3-0.
