Big match preview: Bristol Rovers

1 November 2016

Everything you need to know ahead of Town's away game against The Pirates...

Fleetwood are aiming to replicate Saturday’s victory over Gillingham as they travel to face Bristol Rovers in Tuesday night’s Sky Bet League One fixture.

Recent form

Uwe Rosler's men secured a 2-1 victory on Saturday when they faced The Gills thanks to a late goal from Ash Hunter. David Ball has opened the scoring in the first half for Town before Jake 

Hessenthaler equalised in the second half.

The Cod Army have only lost one in their last five league games, with wins against The Gills, Chesterfield and Peterborough, as well as a draw against Sheffield United and a narrow 2-1 defeat away at Millwall.

Rovers match these stats, as they beat Oldham, Gillingham and Northampton, but drew to MK Dons and lost to Peterborough, with the defeat against Posh coming on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Key men to watch

Matty Taylor is currently joint second in the overall goal scoring tally with 10. He's been the clubs top goal scorer for the past couple of seasons, and gained a second half hat-trick against MK Dons two weeks ago.

Also, midfielder Chris Lines has the most assists for the club and partners well with Taylor, so Fleetwood’s backline led by skipper Nathan Pond, will have to be on their game.

Ticket Information

Tickets for tonight's match are available to purchase from the ticket office at the stadium.

Live commentary

Full match commentary will be available on Cod Army Player HD, with full live text updates on the club’s official Twitter page.
