Match Preview: Bristol Rovers v Bury

29 March 2018

All the pre-match stats heading into Friday's fixture.

Rovers head into the busy Easter weekend with the visit of Bury to the Memorial Stadium.

After taking the lead last weekend at Peterborough United, Rovers were unable to hold onto a narrow lead to pick up all three points on offer and had to settle for a point.

Easter throws up two important fixtures for Rovers, as they face two sides that are fighting to secure their places in SkyBet League One next season, with Friday's fixture against Bury quickly proceded by the long journey to face Fleetwood on Easter Monday.

Darrell Clarke's View: The Manager celebrated his four-year anniversary in charge of Rovers this week and looked back on four years at the helm, as well as offering his insight into Friday's opponents.

Player's View: Tony Craig was chosen to face questions from the local press this week, as the defender spoke about opening his account for Rovers last weekend and the busy schedule of Easter fixtures.

Opposition: Bury are ten points adrift from safety in SkyBet League One and have only won once on the road all season. The Latics appointed Ryan Lowe as Manager back in January and are currently without a win in four games, but do have fixtures against fellow relegation candidates to come between now and the end of the season.


Three to Watch: Bury F.C

Last Time Out: Rovers recorded a 3-2 victory at Gigg Lane earlier this season. Tom Lockyer opened the scoring just ahead of the hour mark before a brace from Billy Bodin gave Rovers a comfortable lead heading into the closing stages. There was a fightback from the hosts, that saw both Jermaine Beckford and Nicky Ajose pull back two late goals inside stoppage time, but Darrell Clarke's side held out to pick up all three points.
