Previous Results

Rovers last faced off against Sutton United in this year's Emirates FA Cup second round in which the Gas emerged victorious thanks to goals from Aaron Collins and Nick Anderton. Take a look back at the victory at The Mem below!

Last Time Out

In our previous game, the lads showed great character to clinch victory against Walsall despite playing the majority of the game with 10 men after Luca Hoole's first-half dismissal. A late goal from Aaron Collins secured all three points for the Gas in what could prove to be a vital victory come the end of the season.

Form Guide

Last years champions of the National League have surprised many in their first year in the Football League as they currently sit in 4th place in the Sky Bet League Two and with aspirations of achieving a playoff spot come the end of the season. Matt Gray's side are undefeated in their last six games in all competitions and have a semi-final against Wigan in the Papa Johns Trophy to look forward to at the start of March. In the league this season, Sutton have found the net on 43 occasions making them the third-highest scorers in the league up to this point. The Us were victorious in their last match in the league, a 0-2 away victory against Carlisle United saw them return to winning ways after drawing their previous match against Northampton Town.
