Bristol Rovers

Last updated: Sun 05 January 2020 07:39
In Brief

Suffered a 3:0 defeat at MK Dons. A draw and two defeats under Ben Garner. Anssi Jaakkola the latest concern.

Looking Back

Bristol Rovers produced a below par display in their recent match at MK Dons and were beaten with a 3:0 scoreline.

The Gas have been poor since losing manager Graham Coughlan. Ben Garner, who was eventually named his replacement, has recorded a draw and two defeats in his three games in charge.

Looking Ahead

Anssi Jaakkola had to come off with an injury in the previous game and is the latest concern going into the upcoming match.

Other than the keeper, Garner has no new selection issues to contend with.

Points of Interest

Bristol Rovers have hosted Coventry twice in the last ten years and were victorious on both occasions.

Coventry City

Last updated: Sun 05 January 2020 07:39
In Brief

Claimed a 4:1 win at Tranmere. Have been in excellent form over the recent weeks. Expected to remain virtually at full strength.

Looking Back

Coventry produced a commanding display in their recent match at Tranmere and crushed the Rovers with a 4:1 scoreline.

The Sky Blues have won their last three matches and have done so by playing some eye-catching football.

Looking Ahead

The man under the spotlight at the moment is Matt Godden, who recently returned from a mid-term injury and went on to score back-to-back hat-tricks in the last two games.

The Sky Blues are expected to remain virtually at full strength.

Points of Interest

Coventry currently have a 2-7-2 away record in the league. After going winless in their opening nine, they won each of the last two.
