Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Bristol Rovers will look to recover from a 2-0 loss to Cambridge United when they take on Wycombe in the League One round 5. The Pirates have been encountering a mix of favorable and unfavorable moments of late, but they are surely capable of making life difficult for the Chairboys on home soil. Both Sinclair and Loft are pushing for a start, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Wycombe, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Burton. The visitors aim to return to winning ways as well, but given their difficulties on the road, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. Experienced Jamaica forward Garath McCleary should once again start off the bench after, while defender Chris Forino-Joseph is likely to start this time out.
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.
