Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After sharing the spoils with Fleetwood, Rochdale, and Plymouth in the previous three league fixtures, Crewe will be looking to return to winning ways in the League One when they host Bristol Rovers at their Alexandra Stadium. The Railwaymen have already recorded six wins at home ground in the 2020/21 League One season, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Bristol Rovers.
A man to watch in the home team will be Mikael Mandron, who has netted six goals so far this season. The Pirates, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their previous three league fixtures. Bristol Rovers sit in the danger zone in the League One standings, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Crewe’s party at Alexandra Stadium. In their last encounter in a competitive match Crewe recorded a routine 3-0 win over Bristol Rovers.

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.
