Matches involving Bristol Rovers and Fleetwood in recent seasons have been short on entertainment and the latest rivalry at an empty Memorial Stadium is unlikely to buck the trend.
The last three meetings have ended as goalless draws – only one of the last five meetings has seen the net bulge at both ends – and another contest where defences come to the fore is expected.
Bristol Rovers boast the second worst home form in the division, with only four points from five outings on their own patch. They have netted just four times during those fixtures.
Fleetwood have won three of their last four games but they have struggled on their travels, losing four of their five road trips.
The Cod Army, who reached the League One playoffs last season, are defensively strong and they have kept clean sheets in four of their last six matches.
With those factors in mind, we predict a low-scoring contest which makes the draw a more likely outcome.
Both teams have scored in only one of Fleetwood’s last six league games, while Rovers have netted just four times in their last five outings.
The last three meetings between the pair have ended 0-0, so we suggest a small wager on a repeat scoreline.
