Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wigan Athletic will be aiming to put an end to their eight-game winless run in the League One when they host Bristol Rovers at their DW Stadium. The Latics are stuck in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 14, meaning that they are likely to leave their hearts on the field against Bristol Rovers. Norway teenager Thelo Aasgaard, who scored as a substitute in a 2-1 loss to Oxford United, is pushing for a start for the hosts.
The Pirates, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Swindon. Bristol Rovers are on a three-game losing run in the League One, and seeing that both teams are likely to go for a win in the DW Stadium clash, both teams to score betting option should be considered. In their last encounter in the English third tier the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
Highlighted Player (Nathan Cameron):
Born in Birmingham, England, on November 21, 1991, Nathan Cameron is a professional footballer who plays for Macclesfield Town as a defender. Cameron is a product of the Coventry City football school, and he continued wearing the sky blue shirt at the senior level.
He made 48 appearances in the league for Coventry City, but he played for the likes of Nuneaton Town (loan), Northampton Town (loan), and Bury as well before joining Macclesfield Town. Nathan Cameron has one cap for the England U20 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
The 188-cm-tall defender made his Macclesfield Town debut in the League two in a 2-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons on November 17, 2018. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 25 shirt at Macclesfield Town.
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.
