            Bristol Rovers vs Peterborough Preview, Tips & Stats

            The Memorial Stadium hosts Bristol Rovers and Peterborough this Saturday in League One. Peterborough look to secure their spot in the Play-offs whereas Bristol Rovers need a win to close in on a spot in the top half of the table.

            Bristol Rovers currently sit 14th in League One after 44 games. The Gas have 16 wins, nine draws and 19 losses, leaving them on 57 points, one point from the top half of the table.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Bristol Rovers have two wins, one draw and two losses.

            There were only six shots on target in the entire 90 minutes between Bristol Rovers and Shrewsbury, but neither side could convert any of them as the game finished in a 0 - 0 draw. The next time out for Rovers was a visit from Bolton. After a goalless first half, Aaron Collins opened the scoring seventh minute of the second half and a 98th minute penalty from Aaron Morley secured the 2 - 0 win for Bolton.

            It was another 2 - 0 loss for Bristol Rovers, this time against Reading. Sam Smith gave Reading the lead in the eighth minute and Lewis Wing doubled the lead on the stroke of halftime. Rovers couldn’t find the back of the net even with more of the possession and slumped to a 2 - 0 loss. Bristol Rovers finally bounced back against Cheltenham. Scott Sinclair, Brandon Aguilera and Elkan Baggott all scored in the 3 - 1 win for Rovers, with Liam Sercombe scoring a consolation goal in the 94th minute.

            The last time out for Bristol Rovers was against Cambridge United. Chris Martin scored the only goal of the game in the 87th minute to give Bristol Rovers the 1 - 0 win.

            Peterborough, on the other hand, currently sit fourth in League One. In 43 games, The Posh have 24 wins, eight draws and 11 losses which leaves them on 80 points, six points from automatic promotion.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Peterborough have four wins and one loss.

            Hector Kyprianou opened the scoring for Peterborough in the eighth minute and Ephron Mason-Clarke doubled the lead before halftime. Ethan Galbraith did get Leyton Orient on the scoresheet with 20 minutes to go, but The Posh held on for the 2 - 1 win. In the Final of the Football League Trophy, Peterborough took on Wycombe. Harrison Burrows gave Peterborough the lead in the 85th minute but Dale Taylor equalised with one minute to go. However, Burrows scored again to give The Posh the 2 - 1 win in the 91st minute.

            Back in League One, The Posh hosted Port Vale. Joel Randall opened the scoring and along with a penalty from Burrows and an own goal from Alex Iacovitti, Peterborough picked up a 3 - 0 win. The trip to Oxford United was one to forget for Peterborough. A brace from Ruben Rodrigues and goals from Mark Harris, Josh Murphy and Billy Bodin gave Oxford United the 5 - 0 win.

            The most recent outing for Peterborough was against Fleetwood. A late brace from Jonson Clarke-Harris and goals from Malik Mothersille and Archie Finn Collins gave Peterborough the 4 - 1 win, with Bosun Lawal scoring for Fleetwood in the first minute.

            This will be the 50th meeting between Bristol Rovers and Peterborough, with the first meeting coming back in 1938. Peterborough have the marginally better record in the fixture with 18 wins in comparison to Rovers’ 15 wins, with the other 16 meetings ending in a draw.
