Match Preview: Bristol Rovers v AFC Wimbledon

22 October 2018

All the pre-match content ahead of our midweek Sky Bet League One fixture against AFC Wimbledon.

Rovers head into Tuesday's encounter on the back on a 0-0 draw at home on Saturday against Oxford. The game saw an impressive second-half display from the Gas, who controlled the final forty-five minutes on Saturday afternoon but couldn't quite find the net, a game in which Darrell Clarke's side registered their fourth clean sheet in six games. 

Marcus's View: The Rovers Assistant Manager spoke to the press on Monday morning and offered his preview of Tuesday's encounter.

Opposition View: AFC Wimbledon slipped down in the bottom four on the weekend just gone, as a 2-0 defeat away at Blackpool meant that Neal Ardley's side recorded a fourth straight defeat. The Dons have won twice on the road so far this season, beating Fleetwood and Gillingham on their travels. Neal Ardley's side are without a win in October, with their last win coming at the end of September at home to Oxford United.
