Bristol Rovers look value in Tuesday's League One clash at the Memorial Stadium.
Bristol Rovers v Fleetwood - Tuesday 19:45
Fleetwood maintained their record of being the only team in the EFL to have scored in every league game this season with a 2-1 win over Gillingham on Saturday. Strikers David Ball and Ashley Hunter were on the scoresheet for the Cod Army, meaning all but two of their 22 goals have been scored by one of the four most advanced players on the pitch.
The victory over Gills completed a productive October for Uwe Rosler’s men, taking ten points from a possible 15. Impressive also is the fact they have scored the first goal in 11 of their 15 matches this season. Given that Bristol Rovers have only managed one clean sheet so far, it’s hard to imagine Fleetwood not finding the net at the Memorial Stadium.
Whether they should expect to win the game or not is another question altogether. Step back from that current sequence and their overall record is a little flaky, with five of their six victories registered against teams in the bottom nine. Aways trips to Bolton, Rochdale, Bradford and Millwall have all ended in 2-1 defeats, despite taking the lead in two of them.
The Pirates squandered a one-goal lead in the 2-1 home defeat by Peterborough at the weekend, a result that hinged on a goalkeeping error from Kelle Roos, but the shoe is usually on the other foot - they’ve rescued 16 points from losing positions. Take the 3/1 on Rovers to win and both teams to score. The 25/1 about the Gas to win from behind is also worth backing.
