Bristol Rovers v Shrewsbury Town on Saturday 27 February 2021
Bristol Rovers take on Shrewsbury Town in a EFL League One fixture on Saturday 27 February kicking off at 3pm at The Memorial Stadium.
Bristol Rovers will be hoping for a repeat of the seasons earlier fixture, a rare 1-0 win with striker Brandon Hanlan heading in a Zain Westbrooke cross in the 15th minute to secure all 3 points. Doing the double over Shrewsbury will hopefully keep Rovers moving into a more comfortable mid table position.
