Bristol Rovers – Wigan preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Bristol Rovers vs Wigan lineups.

Bristol Rovers

Rovers recorded only their second win of the season last weekend. Solid defensive showing on their visit to Shrewsbury combined with the first goals of the campaign from strikers Collins and Marquis were enough for the 2:0 victory. 

The Pirates were also pleased as this was their first clean sheet of the campaign too. 

The one bad news from this last match was the injury to the main left-back Friend. He’s now joining the influential playmaker Rossiter in the treatment room. 

Considering the strong display last weekend Rovers are likely to keep the changes to a minimum. 

Predicted Lineup:

Cox (GK), Hunt, Wilson, Taylor, Grama, Bogarde, Evans, Woods, Thomas, Collins & Marquis

Wigan

Wigan managed to earn a scrappy 2-1 home win vs Carlisle last weekend. The display was far from great and late on Wigan had to put all bodies behind the ball to win this match. 

Wigan lost their 2 previous matches so it has been 3 consecutive unconvincing displays for them now.  

Wigan haven’t lost any of the last 9 matches vs Bristol Rovers, with their last defeat in this fixture way back in 1998. 

Don’t have any serious injury issues. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Tickle (GK), Clare, Hughes, Morrison, Rekik, Adeeko, Smith, Godo, Humphrys, Aasgaard & Wyke

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

Player to Watch: Thelo Aasgaard

Wigan’s key playmaker Aasgaard made his comeback from an injury in the last round and immediately played a decisive role. He scored the goal that won the match for Wigan. 

Aasgaard is the heartbeat of Wigan’s attack and we back him to have another very strong showing now against a team that managed to keep only 1 clean sheet in 7 rounds.
