VENUE: Memorial Stadium
Bristol Rovers welcomes Blackpool at the Memorial Stadium in match day nine of the English League One both sides out to prove a point in what is expected to be a nervy encounter.
Bristol would be counting on their buoyant home support to bounce back from their infuriating 3-0 mauling away to Wigan Athletic in their latest League One outing with a resounding home win.
The hosts are in fairly poor form coming into the clash managing two wins and suffering three defeats in their five matches and a positive result is what their faithful would be demanding in this.
The hosts currently lie fifteenth in the premier league standing with nine points from eight matches.
Blackpool buoyed by their 3-1 win over Oxford United travel to face Bristol Rovers hoping to deliver more of the same in what will prove to be a tricky encounter.
The visitors are in relatively decent form coming into the match managing to bag three victories, registered one draw and suffered one loss in their last five matches.
G.Bowyer charges currently lie fourth in the League One Table with seventeen points from eight matches played.
Blackpool has won three of the last five encounters between the two sides while Bristol Rovers have won the other two.
Bristol probable line-up- Slocombe, Leadbitter, Brown, Sweeney, Lockyer, Sercombe, Bodin, Lines, Clarke, Gaffney, Harrison
Blackpool probable line-up- Allsop, Tilt, Turton, Robertson, Daniel, D’Almeida, Longstaff, Cooke, Vassell, Delfouneso
