Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Bristol Rovers and Darlington face each other in the FA Cup for the first time since 2010 when the Quakers emerged triumphant. The Pirates must be hungry for revenge, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field in Saturday’s FA Cup clash. Bristol Rovers played out a goalless draw with Wigan Athletic in their last League One game, but it has to be noted that they failed to turn their dominance into goals.
Darlington, on the other hand, did well to beat Swindon Town on the road in the FA Cup round 1. The National League North side are eager to claim yet another major scalp in the prestigious competition, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Memorial Stadium clash. You should bear in mind that Darlington suffered a 1-0 loss to Bradford PA in their last game in the National League North.
