For our Bristol Rovers vs. Derby prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
Derby County's quest for a top six finish in League One continues this weekend as they travel to face Bristol Rovers.
Bristol Rovers currently sit 14th in League One with fourteen wins, nine draws and sixteen losses from thirty-nine games this season.
Rovers have been the epitome of streaky in League One this season after constantly fluctuating between extended runs of wins and runs of losses.
Their fans will be frustrated with their overall showing given they've demonstrated on numerous occasions against the league's better sides that they're capable of kicking on beyond a mid-table finish.
However, it was not to be this season as they now cruise towards an unremarkable mid-table finish.
They enter this game in good form having won three, and lost two of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 2-1 win away at Fleetwood Town.
The win at Fleetwood confirmed a second win on the bounce for Joey Barton's side and despite the fact they have nothing to play for they're clearly determined to end the season strongly.
Their home form is a concern ahead of this one, though, with Rovers having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five matches on home soil.
Having won their most recent encounter, however, they'll be hoping they've now turned a corner on their own turf.
This is a tough game for Bristol Rovers as they welcome a side gunning for the play-offs, but they've regularly taken points off those types of sides this season and given their form they'll be confident of getting a result here.
Derby County currently sit 7th in League One with nineteen wins, eleven draws and eleven losses from forty-one games this season.
The Rams have had a slightly underwhelming campaign despite being in the running for the play-offs as they've failed to impose themselves on the league and cement themselves as one of the top promotion contenders.
Instead, they've spend the majority of the campaign on the edge of the play-off spots, trying to claw their way into the top six.
They're coming into this game very much out of form, too, having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five matches, with their only victory coming against bottom of the league Forest Green Rovers.
Their most recent result saw them held to a 1-1 draw against MK Dons, a disappointing result that hampers their play-off hopes.
Derby are level on points with Bolton in 6th having played a game more so they're still well in the hunt for a top six finish, but they need to book their ideas up if they're to avoid missing out on the play-offs as they're currently trending in a concerning direction.
Derby beat Bristol Rovers 4-2 when the two sides met back in October but given the form of the two sides this one is likely to be much, much more competitive.
