Bristol Rovers News and Form
Four of the five games that Bristol Rovers have played this season have been on home soil. So has been a good advantage for them to get up and running. They are currently W3 D1 at the Memorial Stadium this season, conceding just one goal in those three games.
They have played four home games this season and have a clean sheet in three of those. In the first round of this season’s League Cup, they were at home and they took a 3-0 victory over Cheltenham.
With at least two goals scored in each of the last three home games, will they be able to pose a threat to the Seagulls? Interestingly Bristol Rovers have won their last four home games in the League Cup. The last time that the Pirates hosted a Premier League side in the League Cup was back in 2007 as they lost 2-1 against West Ham.
Brighton News and Form
Brighton opened their Premier League campaign with a stunning 3-0 away win at Watford. However, the Seagulls have not been able to build on that having taken just one point from their last two games. With no clean sheet in their last two, it will be interesting to see how they get on against Rovers who are the decent home team.
So this does appear to be a bit of a tricky away game for Brighton who lost in the second round last season at home against Southampton. Brighton have alternated between a loss and a win in their last five away games in the League Cup. Their record in their last nine away games in the competition is W4 L5.
