Bristol Rovers average away League One attendance compared to Shrewsbury Town, Port Vale, Lincoln City and Stevenage

League One away attendances and how Bristol Rovers compare to rivals

The majority of League One will be on pause this weekend as the FA Cup becomes the priority. Several clubs were eliminated in the earlier rounds of the competition, suffering upsets against lower league opposition, but there are still a handful of games still on.

League leaders Portsmouth are away at Cheltenham Town whilst Fleetwood Town host Derby County at 12.30 pm. Exeter City play against Carlisle United, and there's also Burton Albion v Wycombe Wanderers and Port Vale against Charlton Athletic.

Bristol Rovers meanwhile have a trip to Carrow Road as they face yo-yo club Norwich City in the FA Cup. Tickets have reasonably been priced at £10 for adults and have been on sale since mid-December. A respectable away following is to be expected for the trip to Norfolk, and such is the beauty of the FA Cup, there could even be an upset on the cards.

Despite being based in a two-club city for EFL teams, Rovers have a good level of support and have tried to bring the Memorial Stadium back to a capacity of around 12,000. Away allocations have been limited to less than a 1,000 with work ongoing on the South Stand, and some of the bigger clubs have missed out bringing larger followings.

The same can't be said for Rovers however who this season have taken some decent followings across England. Oxford United was one of their closest matches, and they took a good number. 'Is that all you take away' is a chant sometimes heard by the home fans, and now clubs in England's third tier can provide their rivals with some cold hard facts.

Thanks to figures from EFL specialist website The 72, we can have a look at which teams boast the best level of support on their travels. We've added to their mid-season figures, and now you can see how Bristol Rovers compare to the likes of Shrewsbury Town, Port Vale, Lincoln City and Stevenage.
