Bristol Rovers to win
We kick off our predictions for this game by backing Bristol Rovers to win. It's easy to point to the fact that they're not tearing it up in League One but the same could be said for Boreham Wood – and they are playing three divisions below the Gas. Bristol Rovers have impressed more recently too as they've now built a four game unbeaten run with three wins and a draw in that time. Boreham Wood meanwhile have been struggling for results; the only win they have across their last five games is in the previous round of this completion. Throw in the fact they're away from home as well and anything but a home win would be a real turn up for the books.
Someone will blank
Our next tip for this game comes from the both teams to score market. Bristol Rovers have seen three of their last five home games end with a ‘nil' in the final score line whilst Boreham Wood haven't seen both teams score in any of their last two games and in three of their most recent five. When you then consider how the lower league side are likely to approach this game, which will be to sit tight and frustrate their hosts, it makes an end to end game much less likely. As such, the ‘no' outcome is the bet to place.

Rovers should win…but will they?
Bristol Rovers are going nowhere in League One. They've never been a promotion contender and their recent upturn in form has all but killed off talk of relegation. With that in mind, there is no reason not to name a strong XI here.
Bristol Rovers Predicted lineup – Belshaw, Connolly, Thomas, Gibson, Sinclair, Gordon, Rossiter, Finley, Evans, Coburn, Collins
Boreham Wood come into this game as underdogs and out of form. They'll be aiming to keep it 0-0 for as long as possible with the aim of either earning a replay or nicking a goal on the counter. Will Evans at the heart of the backline will be key.
