League One matchup prediction for Bristol Rovers against Reading: important players return………

Following their convincing 7-2 FA Cup first-round success at home against Whitby Town, Bristol Rovers return to table One action tomorrow evening when they visit Reading, who are currently at the bottom of the table.

The Gas advanced to the next round, where they will play either Derby County or Crewe Alexandra away, thanks to goals from John Marquis, Luke Thomas, Jevani Brown, Antony Evans, Harvey Vale, Aaron Collins, and an own goal in the second half. The seventh-tier team was soundly defeated at Memorial Stadium.

The team led by Andy Mangan enters the match riding a three-game winning streak across all competitions. The 2800 Gasheads who are traveling will be optimistic that they can win the three points at Select Car Leasing Stadium.

Prior to their travel to Berkshire, Mangan will need to evaluate his team because some players are returning from injury and suspension.

This is how we believe the Gas and Royals will match up.

Establishment: (4-4-1-1)

In his first two games in charge, Mangan has set up his squad using this strategy, and it has proven to be very effective as the interim manager has won both games.
1. Matthew Cox, GK

This season, the Brentford loanee has participated in every league game. We anticipate seeing Cox continuing his success in goal because James Belshaw is still away on loan at Forest Green Rovers.
2. James Gibbons, RB

Mangan might continue to play the 25-year-old defender after his outstanding performance in the FA Cup, where he recorded two assists. Although Jack Hunt and Luca Hoole are both close to recovering from their injuries, the fullbacks may be playing this game too soon.

The Brentford loanee has played in every league game this season. Due to James Belshaw’s continued absence on loan at Forest Green Rovers, we expect Cox to continue his stellar play in goal.
2. RB James Gibbons

Mangan may keep the 25-year-old defender in the lineup following his excellent FA Cup performance, which included two assists. Both Luca Hoole and Jack Hunt are nearing full recovery from their injuries, but the fullbacks might be entering the game too soon.

5. Joshua Grant, LB

One of the team’s most adaptable players is the former Chelsea graduate. After Crama returned, Grant, who had been playing center half, has being used at left back. Mangan might decide to play his physicality at fullback in tomorrow night’s difficult match.
