Tip Reasoning

  • Scunthorpe have lost four games in a row without scoring
  • Bristol Rovers have lost only two matches this season against teams currently below them in the table
  • The Iron have only one won of their 13 fixtures since Keith Hill took charge

Scunthorpe in deep trouble

Despite a change of manager, Scunthorpe have been unable to turn their form around and are in even deeper trouble than when Keith Hill arrived, currently sitting six points from safety in the League Two relegation zone.

The Iron have lost four in a row without scoring, while their only victory under the new boss was a 3-1 success against bottom club Oldham in November.

Their home form provides little confidence either, with the club having picked up just ten points from an available 36 at Glanford Park courtesy of two wins and four draws.

Bristol Rovers finally picking up

Bristol Rovers had a poor start to the season and they remain in the bottom half of League Two, but they have won two of their last three and now sit 11 points above the relegation zone and 11 points behind the play-off race.

Joey Barton’s side have lost nine times this season, but most of those came against teams fighting for promotion, with only two defeats – at Hartlepool in September and against Stevenage in August – coming against teams currently below them in the table.

They have not won that many on the road, but they are tough to beat, suffering just one defeat, against league leaders Forest Green, in their last seven away games, winning twice.

The statistics suggest this will be anything but a classic, but Bristol Rovers are capable of winning it, so I predict there will be an away victory, selecting 1-0 to the Gas as a correct score.
