History of the Bristol Rovers v Millwall fixture

Bristol Rvs. play host to Millwall at Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Pirates are clearly on top, having won 21 and lost only 7 of the 37 games.

The last time the two teams met at Bristol Rvs. was back in November 2000, over five years ago, with Millwall inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Pirates in a League Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Bristol Rovers's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Pirates have scored 4, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Millwall's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the The Lions have hit 5 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Bristol Rvs. find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 16 points from their 15 matches. Millwall are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 13 points from their 15 games thus far.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Bristol Rvs. at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Pirates will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
