Our forecast for this FA Cup game:
Team in focus (Bristol Rovers):
Founded on August 1, 1883, Bristol Rovers is a longstanding team in League One. The club was created during a gathering at Eastville Restaurant and initially called Black Arabs, inspired by the Arabs rugby team.
However, this name was only used for one season before the club rebranded as Eastville Rovers in 1884. Five years later, the club was officially renamed Bristol Rovers. They are known as the Pirates and play their home games at Memorial Stadium Horfield, which can hold 12,296 people. The team is recognized for their blue and white home jersey, but they wear yellow when playing away games.
Ricky Lambert, formerly of Southampton and Liverpool in the Premier League, is considered a standout player for the club. It should be mentioned that Lambert recorded 51 goals in 128 matches for the Pirates in the league.
