Match Preview: Bristol Rovers vs Peterborough United

11 August 2017

We take a quick look at tomorrow's opponents Peterborough United.

Bristol Rovers go into their first home game of the season looking to bounce back from last weekend's defeat at the hands of Charlton Athletic. 

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to pick up their first three points of the season against Peterborough United at the Mem.   

Team News: Rovers have a full squad to pick from.

Darrell's View: ”Peterborough are an attacking team. It'll be a good game.

"You want to get that first win, it'll be nice with that first point on the board. You can't always guarantee a win, you play really well some games and lose, but that's football for you.

"All we can do is put the performance in and do our best on the pitch and if you come in and you've done that and you've lost - okay you can hold your hands up. But generally, if you do those things you're going to win a game.⁠⁠⁠⁠" 

Opposition: Peterborough United started the season well picking up all three points against newly promoted Plymouth Argyle however, suffered defeat at the hands of League Two Barnet in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening.          

Dangerman - Leonardo Da Silva Lopes: Leonardo Da Silva Lopes is a talented teenager who joined Peterborough United as a 15-year-old after being spotted playing for a local side called Powerleague.

The energetic central midfielder has athleticism, pace and power and goals against Rovers to his name as he hit the back of the net twice against Darrell Clarke's men at the back end of last season.

Last Time Out: Last season, two goals in either half from Peterborough United meant that Rovers were defeated at the ABAX Stadium, with Rory Gaffney scoring two late consolation goals for Rovers.
