Tip Reasoning

  • Bristol Rovers are without a clean sheet in seven matches.
  • Both teams have scored in each of Bristol Rovers’ last five home games.
  • The visitors have scored in each of their last eight away games.

Pair of League Two sides aiming for the 3rd round

These teams are yet to meet in the league this season with a Boxing Day date currently slated for their initial fixture in League Two.

Nonetheless, both teams arrive here in contrasting runs of form with the hosts winless in three since their 4-3 win over Oxford United in their FA Cup first round replay on November 16th. Joey Barton’s side drew 2-2 in the original tie before winning in a crazy period of extra-time but they are yet to stake their claim in League Two and currently sit 16th in the table,

Matt Gray’s Sutton United meanwhile, have won three games on the spin. Two of those have come in the league to improve their position to 6th while the other was in the EFL Trophy in midweek were they got the better of Stevenage on penalties to advance to the next round.

After winning the National League last season, Sutton have enjoyed their campaign so far and have won six of their last eight matches on the road and although slight underdogs I think they could edge this tie.

Goals at each end

Given that both these teams are in the same league, it’s easier to gauge their level against one another. Bristol Rovers have scored and conceded in six of their last eight league matches whereas both teams have scored in three of Sutton’s last four games away from home.

Sutton have won three of their last four matches away from home while Rovers have won two of their last three as hosts but are winless in three. Something has to give here and given the current form I fancy Sutton to edge this by two goals to one.
