Bristol Rovers vs Accrington predictions for Saturday’s League One fixture at Memorial Stadium. Having lost on the opening day, both Accrington and Bristol Rovers will be looking for better on this occasion. Continue reading below for our free tips and predictions.

Reason For Bristol Rovers vs Accrington Stanley Betting Tips

Despite turning in a dominant performance, at least in terms of attacking effort, Bristol Rovers lost on the opening day, though they can be pleased with aspects of their display. Now back in front of their own fans, Darrell Clarke’s men will be hoping to earn their first win of the season.

There were quite a few sob stories during the opening weekend in League One; teams who deserved something but got nothing, and it’s fair to say that Bristol Rovers fit into that category. They may have lost away at Peterborough, but Darrell Clarke’s men didn’t exactly perform badly. They were proactive throughout, got forward and created chances. However, a combination of both bad luck and a lack of end-product saw the Pirates’ come off second best.

The fact that they were 2-0 down until deep into stoppage times suggests that Peterborough were comfortable, though that is not the case. During the game, Rovers conjured more shots, more shots on target, more shots in the box and were generally the more threatening team. In fact, other than the two goals that they conceded, one of which arrived inside the first minute of the game, Rovers came under little pressure defensively. Losing when clearly the better team is always tough to take, though Saturday’s hosts can be pleased with their performance, a repeat of which would likely see them gain a much better result on this occasion.

Accrington’s loss against Gillingham was cut from the same cloth as Rovers’ at Peterborough. On the opening day, John Coleman’s men found themselves leaving the turf in front of a home crowd having lost, though their performance warranted much more. Just like Rovers did at ABAX Stadium, Accrington dominated their visitors in terms of attacking intent, shots and shots in the box, though it was Gillingham who managed to get the ball in the net.

It would be easy to assume that if Accrington cannot beat Gillingham on home soil, then they’re unlikely to beat a useful Bristol Rovers side away from home, though their performance last weekend hinted that they should be capable of causing the hosts problems on this occasion. Clarke’s men were strong going forward on their own patch last season, but they were none too clever at the back, as they shipped a rather worrying 30 goals in 23 game at Memorial Stadium.

Going forward, Bristol Rovers, who scored the third highest amount of home goals in this division last season, should have more than enough in the locker to hurt their opponents on this occasion, but as we saw both regularly last season and last Saturday, they’ll give teams a chance at the back. Keeping that in mind, it’s easy to fancy ‘Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score’ at the prices.

Head to Head

Accrington have nothing short of an excellent record in this fixture in recent times. Saturday’s visitors have won each of the last six renewals of this fixture. Three of those six victories have come at this venue.
