Posh to lead at HT and FT
Peterborough might be struggling in the Championship but drop further down the pyramid they're a very good team. When you consider the r fact that Bristol Rovers are struggling in League Two and that the Posh have home advantage this really should be a breeze for Peterborough and an opportunity to restore a little bit of confidence. That's why we're backing them to be winning this tie at both half time and full time.
We will see goals
Our next prediction for Peterborough vs Bristol Rovers is for the game to see over 2.5 goals. Bristol Rovers have seen three of their last five end north of the 2.5 cut off with Peterborough boasting the same record; again three of their last five matches have gone over 2.5 goals. It's not all about current form either because these two sides have net a few times in recent years; three of the last five head to head meetings where Peterborough have been the home side have ended with at least three goals in them.

Peterborough vs Bristol Rovers: It's predicted lineup time
Peterborough and Bristol Rovers are having largely forgettable seasons in their respective leagues. What their fans would give for a cup run and, potentially, a money spinning tie with one of the big boys.
Peterborough Predicted Lineup
Peterborough's biggest problem in the league this season has been some of their key attacking players stepping up to Championship level. Well, they're not playing against that level here so expect an all out attack performance.
Predicted lineup – Cornell, Thompson, Knight, Edwards, Tomlinson, Burrows, Norburn, Grant, Taylor, Clarke-Harris, Dembele
Bristol Rovers Predicted Lineup
Bristol Rovers have endured a drab first half of the campaign and their reward for reaching the third round follows suit; this is a game they're expected to lose without any of the glamour a bigger tie brings. It's not done and dusted yet though; can they cause a shock?
Predicted lineup – Belshaw, Hoole, Taylor, Anderton, Anderson, Coutts, Whelan, Clarke, Evans, Collins, Nicholson
