How does Bristol Rovers’ average attendance compare to their league rivals?

Bristol Rovers were promoted from League Two last season in dramatic style and have since adapted well to the step up a division. Joey Barton’s side are currently 13th in the division and are only five points off the play-offs after their 2-2 draw against table toppers Plymouth Argyle last time out.

They are back in action on Wednesday evening away at 3rd position Sheffield Wednesday which will be another big test. However, the Gas make the journey to South Yorkshire in good spirits having gone five matches unbeaten now.
