Every League One club’s average AWAY attendance - Where do Bristol Rovers, Bolton Wanderers, Derby County and Pompey rank - gallery

How the 24 teams in League One rank in the average away attendance table

Bristol Rovers are a club that punches above its weight in a two-club city when it comes to support.

The Gas compete with Bristol City are in two separate parts of the city but both compete for support. Rovers right now are 13th when it comes to average home attendances with 7,820 coming through the turnstiles each week.

Their home attendance has been affected by the delays to the construction of the South Stand. According to the Bristol Post, the stand looks to be granted planning permission in the next fortnight after their fresh application was fast-tracked, and hopefully in the New Year we'll see that stand packed out by passionate Gasheads who are keen to support their team.

How about away attendances though? Rovers have already played one of their closest away games this season which was a 2-1 defeat to Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium last month. Up next is Reading, and more than 3,000 fans are set to descend onto the Madjeski Stadium on Tuesday night which is an exceptional level of support.

It’s two away games for Rovers this week as following Tuesday’s clash with the Royals, they have their longest trip of the season - a trip to Carlisle United. It's 236-miles from the Memorial Stadium to Brunton Park, and so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of following goes up to Cumbria.

Here is how all 24 League One teams stack up when it comes to away followings. These figures are based on what Football League outlet The 72 has collated with their data over the course of the season so far.
