Bristol Rovers vs Harrogate Town – Preview

Bristol Rovers will be aiming to break into the League Two play-offs on Saturday afternoon for the first time this season as they face Harrogate Town at the Mem.

The Gas have not lost on their own patch since the turn of the year and can move into the division’s top seven with a victory combined with other results going in their favour.

Joey Barton’s side pose the best form in the division over the last six games with four wins, one draw and one defeat – most recently beating Crawley Town this past Tuesday night.

Harrogate Town are the visitors to North Bristol today (Saturday 12 March) and while their form has declined over the past few months, they will pose a significant threat to a Rovers defence that have kept seven clean sheets in their last 14 games.

Simon Weaver’s side have scored 52 goals this season, placing them only behind Forest Green, Swindon and Newport for most goals scored.

The main reason for their impressive attacking return has come from their attack which is spearheaded by Luke Armstrong, Jack Muldoon and Jack Diamond, with the trio responsible for 30 of Harrogate’s 52 goals.

However, the main reason for their slump down the table has come from their poor defensive record having conceded 52 goals with them only ahead of Scunthorpe (59) and Stevenage (54).

Aaron Collins will be the dangerman for the Gas with the forward, who arrived from Forest Green in the summer, having scored all of his nine league goals from his last 16 League Two appearances since December.

The action will get underway at 3pm and updates from the game can be found on our social media’s and live radio bulletin airing throughout the afternoon.
