Bristol Rovers and Swindon Town will fight it out on Tuesday night for all three points as they look to maintain their League One status for next season. 

Both sides are in poor form going into this one, With Bristol Rovers only winning one of their last six games, whilst Swindon have won two of their last six, including a 0-2 win at Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

Both sides are level on points and are only clear of the relegation zone on goal difference, so a win for either side could be crucial.

Team news

Bristol Rovers will be without Alex Rodman due to a muscle problem, while Sam Nicholson is a doubt through injury after he missed the game at the weekend against Plymouth Argyle.

Swindon could well remain unchanged after their victory at the weekend, with Ezekiel Fryers and Mathieu Baudry out, whilst Jonathan Grounds remains a doubt.

Predicted lineups

Bristol Rovers:

Stappershoef; Kilgour, Baldwin, Ehmer, Williams, Leahy, McCormick, Upson, Nicholson, Hanlan, Ayunga. 

Swindon:

Camp; Odimayo, Grant, Iandolo, Caddis, Thompson, Missilou, Palmer, Twine, Payne, Pitman.

Ones to watch

Luke Leahy

Primarily playing as a left-back this season, the 28-year-old is the Pirates' joint top scorer and has got the second most assists. Without his amazing performances this season, Rovers could be a lot worse off.

Scott Twine

The midfielder has only been at the club for the second half of the season and yet he has the second most amount of goals for the Robins, after spending the first half of the season at Newport County, where he accumulated six goals and seven assists in 19 appearances. In 15 appearances for Swindon this season, he has five goals and two assists.

Previous meetings

The last time these two sides met was earlier in the season, when a goal from veteran striker Brett Pitman split the sides and gave Swindon all three points.
