Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Pirelli Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Burton Albion and Bristol Rovers, the two relegation-threatened teams. Burton aim to build on back-to-back wins over Charlton and Rochdale, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek clash. Boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has no fresh injury worries ahead of the visit of Bristol Rovers.
The Pirates, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from back-to-back losses to Gillingham and Wigan, with the team beating Shrewsbury Town at home ground. Bristol Rovers are eager to escape the danger zone, but beating the in-form Brewers on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Joe Day is rated doubtful for the match, but he could be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Edwards):
Despite being born in Singapore on November 17, 1993, Ryan Edwards is eligible to represent Australia in international matches. The 175-cm-tall midfielder has 18 caps with Australia U-23 and it has to be noted that he played for the Socceroos at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. Speaking of his club career, Edwards is a product of AIS, the high performance sports training institution from Australia, but in 2011 he was spotted by Reading scouts.
Ryan Edwards played for the Royals at senior level, making seven appearances for the club in the league. The Australian international whore Perth Glory (loan), St. Mirren (loan), Partick Thistle and Heart of Midlothian shirts as well before signing a deal with Burton Albion in 2019.
He made his debut with the Brewers in the League One on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he is capable of producing fine performances at both central and right midfield 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.
