Bristol Rovers will enter this contest following a 1-1 draw at home to Lincoln City, while the visitors suffered a 2-0 defeat to Barnsley in League one over the weekend.

Over their first seven matches across all competitions this season, Joey Barton’s side have managed just one win, which came over Charlton Athletic a few weeks ago, along with three draws and three losses, including a first-round defeat to Ipswich Town in the Carabao Cup.

The Pirates reached the quarter-final in this competition last season before losing to Plymouth Argyle, and they will be relatively confident getting their cup campaign started on a winning note, having beaten this opponent in their last three meetings.

This season has been something of a nightmare so far for Cheltenham as they head into the contest off the back of their fifth league defeat in six matches and rooted to the bottom of the table.

The Robins were also beaten in round one of the Carabao Cup by Birmingham City last month and have only managed one draw to date, which came against Portsmouth a couple of weeks ago.

Wade Elliott and his players will know that if his side can manage to find a win here, it could give them a much-needed boost of confidence with a few winnable matches incoming over the next few weeks.

Bristol Rovers vs. Cheltenham Town Head to head

In the 26 previous meetings between these two teams, Bristol Rovers have claimed 13 victories while Cheltenham Town have won eight, and they have drawn in five. Cheltenham have scored 24 goals and conceded 38 in the process.

Bristol Rovers Team News

Barton may consider switching back to a 4-4-2 formation as opposed to the 4-3-3 they tried in the defeat to Lincoln City over the weekend.

Scott Sinclair began the season well, scoring twice in their first four matches, and he could return to the lineup after missing out last week.

Cheltenham Town Team News

Elliott has tried several changes in persennel and formation over the first two months of the season, but the backline trio of Sean Long, Curtis Davies and Lewis Freestone have remained an ever-present.

Robert Street and Aidan Keena are likely to continue in attack, while Will Goodwin could join them up front in search of their first goal of the season.
