Match Preview: Bristol Rovers v Tranmere Rovers

19 August 2019

All the information you need ahead of the Gas' midweek clash.

Rovers host Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday, looking to repeat their performance at the same time and same place last week as they beat Cheltenham 3-0 in the Carabao Cup.

In between that game and this coming fixture, Rovers suffered a 2-0 loss away to Coventry City, but the Gas may feel hard done by, as Tom Davies' second-half header was ruled out by the referee before Coventry added a second.

This game signals the start of three home games in a row for Graham Coughlan's side, as they play Oxford United on Saturday before hosting Brighton Hove & Albion a week on Tuesday.

Coach's Preview: Manager Graham Coughlan took questions from the press on Monday morning, stressing his confidence in his side's ability and in his own coaching staff's quality.

Player's Preview: Abu Ogogo also sat down with the local press at the training ground to offer his view on Tuesday's encounter, and to reflect on Saturday's game against his former side.

Opposition: Tranmere will be buoyed by an impressive scoreline over strugglers Bolton Wanderers in their last outing, where they smashed five past the youthful Bolton team to no reply. The three points claimed in that game were their only ones of the season however, as they suffered a 2-0 loss to Portsmouth and a 3-2 defeat to Rochdale in their other league games this campaign. 

Last Encounter: With Tranmere Rovers being one of the sides promoted from League Two last season, it has been a while since the Gas last faced them in the league. Though they did meet in an FA Cup fixture in 2014, one the Gas lost 1-0, the last league meeting between the two sides produced the reverse scoreline, with Chris Lines scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win in 2011.
