Recent respective form guides

Bristol Rovers's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Pirates have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Cheltenham Town's away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. The games have constituted a decent return of 8 goals for the Robins, and 8 goals against.

Bristol Rovers are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 7 points from 8 matches.

Cheltenham Town lie just outside the playoff positions in the npower League Two, picking up 15 from their 9 games so far.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Pirates at home recently, and we can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Robins come away with an easy victory. Away win
