Preview | Bristol Rovers (H)

2 October 2018

Rochdale v Bristol Rovers | Crown Oil Arena, Sky Bet League One, Tuesday 2nd October 2018, 7.45pm Kick-Off

Bristol Rovers are the visitors to the Crown Oil Arena on Tuesday night for the second of back-to-back home games for Dale.

Aaron Wilbraham’s stunning strike couldn’t prevent a 3-1 loss at home to top of the table Portsmouth for Keith Hill’s men on Saturday, whilst Rovers played out a goalless draw at Bradford City.

The Gas are currently a place below Dale in the Sky Bet League One table, having won two, drawn three and lost five of their opening ten league games.
