Bristol Rovers – Wycombe 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 Wycombe lineups.

Bristol Rovers

Bristol Rovers have enjoyed a solid but unimpressive start to the new season. They’ve won just once in the first 4 rounds but also lost only once. Yet to keep a clean sheet though. Also, earned a single point from their last 5 matches vs Wycombe. 

The Gas have some serious injury issues right now and coach Barton struggles to fill all the gaps. Defender Friend and playmaker Rossiter, both certain regular starters when fit, are sidelined right now. All of Wilson and Gibbons in defence + winger Brown also nurse injuries. Wilson seems closer to a return from those. 

Veteran Sinclair is the only in-form forward and after being benched last time around to rest he should start again now up front. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Cox (GK), Hoole, Wilson, Grama, Gordon, Ward, Finley, Thomas, Collins, Sinclair & Marquis

Wycombe

Wycombe opened their season with back-to-back 0-3 defeats. They have steered course since though and with 4 points from their last 2 matches they start to look up the table proper now. 

Last weekend Wycombe dominated their home game vs Burton Albion from start to finish but they struggled to convert chances and this was why they had to settle for a 0-0 draw. Wycombe won easily their last match vs Bristol Rovers, they triumphed 2-0 back in March. 

Centre-back Grimmer and 2 fringe wingers are the only long-term absentees. There could be problems at the full-back positions though. The two main full-backs McCarthy and Jacobson are struggling with minor training ground injuries and are deemed doubtful. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Stryjek (GK), Forino-Joseph, Low, Tafazolli, Vincent-Young, Potts, Scowen, Leahy, Boyes, Taylor & Vokes 

​Starting Lineups

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

​Player to Watch: Scott Sinclair

The 36-year-old winger Sinclair scored in 2 of the last 3 rounds, despite him starting only 2 of the 4 games so far. Sinclair is used mainly on the left flank but he likes to drift inside, or attack crosses at the back post. 

His experience often sees him making the right moves and finding the right positions so we back him to be one of Bristol’s main threats yet again.
