Hull have been in good form recently, winning their last two games. However, with both Peterborough United and Lincoln City having two games in hand on them, The Tigers need to make sure they continue to keep picking up results and cannot afford any slip-ups.
Despite their improving form, Rovers find themselves just one point above the drop zone, and AFC Wimbledon can leapfrog them if they win their game in hand. However, Bristol Rovers have failed to win in their last eight away games so will not have much confidence heading into this one. They come into the game off the back of a 1-0 defeat away at Burton Albion.
There has only been more than two goals in one of Hull's last 10 home games, and only more than two goals in five of Bristol's last six away games so another low-scoring affair could be on the cards on Saturday.
Ingram; Coyle, Greaves, Burke, Elder; Jones, Honeyman, Docherty; Lewis-Potter, Magennis, Wilks
Bristol Rovers (3-4-1-2):
van Stappershoef; Kilgour, Baldwin, Harries; Williams, Westbrook, Grant, Leahy, Nicholson; Ayunga, Hanson
Ones to watch
Mallik Wilks has been on top form for The Tigers this season, bagging 16 goals in 31 league appearances. He has picked up three man of the match awards and seven goals in his previous six games and is one of the front-runners in the golden boot race. The 22-year-old attacker has shown that he should be playing Championship and probably will be next season, with or without Hull.
Luke Leahy has been a standout performer for Bristol Rovers this season at left wing-back. He has been solid defensively and has also chipped in going forward, with five goals and three assists. He could be the difference between Bristol staying up and going down at the end of the season.
Hull have won their last three matches against Bristol Rovers in all competitions. The most recent of these came back in October as Kean Lewis-Potter, Regan Slater and Tom Eaves scored second-half goals to overcome James Daly's early strike.
How to watch
Kick-off is at 15:00 BST on Saturday 6th March and is available on both club's iFollow streaming service for a fee of £10.
