The hosts have drawn their last two league games

Bristol Rovers picked up a point in midweek away at Bolton while Coventry were held to a goalless draw away at Fleetwood, meaning that 7pts still separate these two clubs heading into their weekend encounter. The hosts are looking to end their 11-game winless run in all competitions when they play host to Coventry on Saturday, but the visitors arrive unbeaten in their last 9-matches.

The pair have already met twice in 2020 after being drawn against one another in the FA Cup, where the initial encounter in bristol ended 2-2 and the replay at Coventry saw the hosts progress through to the next round with a comfortable 3-0 victory. The hosts have had a dreadful start to the new year but have picked up draws in their last two outings against Bolton and Fleetwood while Coventry have drawn four of their last six matches, so you can see why we have backed another stalemate this weekend.

Bristol Rovers have already played out six draws at home in League One and Coventry have become the draw specialist with eight of their thirteen away games ending in stalemates. The hosts average 1.50 points per home game and their guests average 1.31 points per away game, suggesting that he most likely result between the pair this weekend is a draw.

Coventry are in the midst of an unbeaten run in all competitions

The home side score an average of 1.29 goals in their own backyard and concede an average of 1.07 goals while Coventry net an average of 1.46 goals per away game and conceded 1.1 goals, so you can see just why we have backed a final scoreline of 1-1 to accompany our prediction of a draw on Saturday.

43% of Bristol Rovers’ home games have ended in draws as have a whopping 62% of Coventry’s away games, with both teams scoring in 43% of Bristol Rovers’ home games and 54% of Coventry’s away trips. Only 36% of the hosts’ home matches have produced over 2.5 goals, a key reason we have backed a low-scoring 1-1 draw this weekend.

The hosts have only failed to score in 36% of their home games and Coventry have only failed to score in 38% of their away games, making a 1-1 draw look more likely final scoreline than a goalless draw. The visitors have only conceded in both halves of 15% of their away games while the hosts have only conceded in both halves of 21% of their away games, adding further weight to our prediction for a 1-1 final score.

We’re confident that Saturday’s clash will end in a draw and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1 between the pair. Both teams have drawn a lot of games this season and with Bristol Rovers struggling to buy a win and their guests in the midst of an unbeaten run that has produced a lot of draws of late, we can only see Saturday’s match ending in a stalemate.
