History of the Bristol Rovers v Yeovil Town fixture

Bristol Rvs. are ready to welcome Yeovil Town to Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon, hoping to break their duck against the visitors. Though past meetings have resulted in more draws than losses for Pirates.

The previous match played between the two at Memorial Stadium was within the last three years, in October 2004, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League 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 6, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Yeovil Town's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Glovers's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 7.

Bristol Rvs. find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 12 points from their 11 matches. Yeovil Town's 17 points from 11 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position.
