Free Press Prediction League: Jonathan Foster’s view on Rovers’ trip to Bristol City

The proverbial six pointer awaits this weekend, with Rovers travelling to face fellow strugglers Bristol City.

We can take confidence from the performance against Cardiff, in which we dominated a team challenging for automatic promotion.

It’s great to see more and more players returning from injury, proving the quality of a squad that has at times been unfairly criticised over the last year given the loss of so many key performers.

We always did have the nucleus of a decent team when fit.

Tommy Spurr was excellent on his return, and to now have players like John Oster and Martin Woods waiting in reserve shows a level of strength in depth that we’ve been deprived of for too long.

It’s too early to talk about ‘win or bust’ games at this stage, and given our away form I don’t think a point would be a bad result at all.istol City 2 Rovers 2
