Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Accrington and Bristol Rovers go head to head at the Wham Stadium in the League One round 27. The Accy Stanley kicked off 2023 with a heavy 4-0 loss at Derby County, with the team dropping to the relegation zone, but a win over Bristol Rovers could see them escape bottom four. Midfielder Joe Pritchard remains on the sidelines with injury, while Aaron Pressley could earn a spot in the starting XI after scoring a brace in the EFL Trophy win over Lincoln.
The Pirates, on the other hand, did well to beat both Cheltenham and Cambridge United in the last two league matches to move closer to the playoffs berth. Bristol Rovers are only three points behind top six, and given Accrington’s poor defensive display against the Rams, away win should be considered. There are no fresh injury concerns in the away team ahead of the trip to Lancashire.
