Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Vale Park will host Monday’s League Two clash between Port Vale and Bristol Rovers. The Valiants are eyeing their sixth consecutive league win, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Pirates. All James Gibbons, Tom Conlon, Tom Pett, and David Worrall are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team. Trevor Clarke is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Bristol Rovers, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Salford City. The Pirates have a chance to climb to automatic promotion berth, but given Port Vale’s splendid winning run, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed. Trevor Clarke is rated doubtful for Monday’s clash, but there are no fresh selection worries in the visiting team. In the first half of the season Port Vale defeated Bristol Rovers 2-1.

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.
