Preview: Bristol Rovers (A)

All the important information ahead of Stanley’s clash with Bristol Rovers

6 September 2019

Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman will be hoping his side can make it three wins on the bounce when they travel south to face Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium on Saturday 7th September, 3pm kick-off.

Stanley have won their last two games including Saturday’s league victory over Milton Keynes Dons, and Tuesday night’s win against Fleetwood Town in the Leasing.com Trophy.

Rovers’ Sky Bet League One campaign so far has consisted of two wins, one draw and three losses.

The Gas are managed by Graham Coughlan after he was appointed on a permanent basis in January earlier this year.

Rovers currently occupy 14th place in the table, six places above Stanley in 20th.

The corresponding fixture last season saw Stanley’s Sean McConville grab a brace and secure a 2-1 victory, with the reverse fixture finishing goalless.

Match Reports

Bristol Rovers 3-3 Stanley

Late Charles penalty rescues Stanley a point after Conneely was sent of

7 September 2019

Accrington Stanley came from behind to snatch a point in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Bristol Rovers with Jordan Clark, Sam Finley and Dion Charles grabbing the goals, but captain Seamus Conneely was also sent off early in the second half.

Stanley got off to the worst start as the ball came to an unmarked Alex Rodman who proceeded to slot the ball past Dimitar Evtimov to open the scoring.

However, the game flipped on 18 minutes as Jordan Clark finished well into the bottom corner, before Sam Finley added a second off the post just two minutes later.

John Coleman’s side continued to dominate, but four minutes before the break Jonson Clarke-Harris smashed the ball past Evtimov to grab the equaliser.

After the break, Stanley were reduced to 10 men after captain Conneely was shown a second yellow card on 49 minutes.

The hosts were on top following the red card, and Clarke-Harris produced an unbelievable overhead kick just after the hour mark to put Rovers in front.

Clark almost grabbed his second a minute later as he unleashed an effort at goal, but it was saved well by Jordi van Stappershoef, with debutant Jerome Opoku then having an effort from range deflected and cleared.

Stanley were awarded a penalty on 76 minutes after Charles as fouled, and the striker got back to his feet to smash the ball home to earn a point for Coleman’s side.

Next up for Stanley is a home fixture against Sunderland on Saturday 14th September, 3pm kick-off.
