Our prediction for this League 1 match:
AFC Wimbledon just can’t find their form at the start of the new League One season. The Dons are still eyeing their first win of the season and we are positive that they are going to fight tooth and nail against Bristol Rovers on Matchday 10. AFC Wimbledon did well to find the net in each of their previous three league fixtures and we predict that they are going to score in Saturday’s football match as well.
The Pirates, on the other hand, are undefeated in previous three games in the English third tier, with the team dropping two points in a midweek fixture against Gillingham. Bristol Rovers are eager to grab something from the Cherry Red Records Stadium clash and given their attacking potential, we predict that they are going to find the net on day 10 as well.

Highlighted Team (Bristol Rovers):
Established back on August 1, 1883, Bristol Rovers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. Bristol Rovers were formed after a meeting at the Eastville Restaurant under the name of Black Arabs after the Arabs rugby team.
This name, though, lasted no more than one season as the club was renamed Eastville Rovers in 1884. Five years later the club’s name was officially changes to Bristol Rovers. Nicknamed the Pirates, Bristol Rovers welcome their opponents at Memorial Stadium Horfield, the venue with the capacity of 12,296. Bristol Rovers are well known for their blue and white home kit, but they are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels.
Ricky Lambert, who used to play for the likes of Southampton and Liverpool in the Premier League, is regarded as one of the club’s most notable footballers. It has to be noted that Lambert scored 51 goals in 128 appearances for the Pirates in the league.
