            Bristol Rovers vs Bolton Preview, Tips & Stats

            Bolton make the trip to Memorial Stadium to take on Bristol Rovers this Saturday in League One. Rovers are looking to close in on the top half of the table whereas Bolton are in close pursuit of automatic promotion. 

            Bristol Rovers currently sit 14th in League One after 40 games. The Gas have 14 wins, nine draws and 17 losses, leaving them on 51 points, just a win from the top half of the table. 

            In their last five games in all competitions, Bristol Rovers have two draws and three losses. 

            The visit from Derby County saw Rovers keep The Rams out in the first half. However, Dwight Gayle, Tom Barkhuizen and Martyn Waghorn all scored in the second half to give Derby the 3 - 0 win. Back on the road, Rovers weren’t able to convert any of their six shots on target in their 60% of the possession. Fleetwood also couldn’t convert any of their shots on target as the game finished in a 0 - 0 draw. 

            Despite Lincoln going down to ten men, with Ethan Erhahon being sent off in the 76th minute, a hat-trick from Joe Taylor and goals from Paudie O’Connor and Reeco Hackett-Fairchild gave Lincoln the 5 - 0 win. The trip to Port Vale saw Rovers fail to register a single shot on target despite having 60% of the possession, as Ben Garrity and Baylee Dipepa both scored to give Port Vale the 2 - 0 win. 

            The last time out for Bristol Rovers was against Shrewsbury. There were only five shots on target in the game as both sides couldn’t find the back of the net in the 0 - 0 draw. 

            Bolton, on the other hand, currently sit third in League One. In 41 games, Bolton have 23 wins, nine draws and nine losses which leaves them on 78 points, four points from Derby County in second.

             In their last five games in all competitions, Bolton have two wins, two draws and one loss. 

            Paris Maghoma gave Bolton the lead over Exeter City at halftime, but a quickfire brace from Sonny Cox gave Exeter the lead just minutes into the second half. However, Eoin Toal scored with just three minutes to go to rescue a 2 - 2 draw for Bolton. The Wanderers were back to winning ways against Oxford United. Nathanael Ogbeta, Josh Dacres-Cogley, George Thomason, Aaron Collins and Josh Sheehan all scored in the 5 - 0 win for Bolton.

            In a big game at the top of the table, Bolton took on Derby. Kane Wilson scored the only goal of the game in the 78th minute to give Derby the 1 - 0 win. The trip to Stevenage saw Bolton unable to convert any of their four shots on target in 64% of the possession as they had to settle for the 0 - 0 draw.

            The most recent outing for Bolton was against Reading. Collins opened the scoring for Bolton but Lewis Wing equalised in the 40th minute. However, Collins then scored twice more to secure a hat-trick and was joined on the scoresheet by Jon Daoi Boovarsson, who scored twice to give Bolton the 5 - 2 win, Paul Mukairu scoring late for Reading.
