Reason For Bristol Rovers vs Sheffield United Predictions

  • Bristol Rovers have won five of their last seven fixtures.
  • Sheffield United are winless after 18 competitive matches this season.
  • The Blades have notched one or fewer goals in each of their last 10 away assignments.

Blunt Blades look fragile

Rock bottom Sheffield United have endured a miserable 2020/21 campaign so far, and Blades supporters everywhere will be fearing the worst ahead of their trip to play League One outfit Bristol Rovers in the Third Round of the FA Cup this weekend.

The Pirates limped through the opening exchanges of the season themselves, though the arrival of a new manager in Paul Tisdale back in November triggered a major reversal of fortunes.

A sequence of five wins from their last seven matches should allow Rovers to approach their date with Sheffield United with a great deal of confidence, and with the Blades still searching for their first competitive win of the season, Saturday’s fixture has all the ingredients required for a famous FA Cup giant killing.

With that considered, the Bristol Rovers double chance market is worth backing at the prices quoted, while our correct score prediction tips the Pirates to progress to the Fourth Round with a 2-1 win.

Rovers averaged 2.66 goals per 90 minutes across their last six tests at the Memorial Stadium, and another brace should be enough for Paul Tisdale’s charges to see off a United team that has notched one or fewer goals in each of their last 10 away assignments.
