October got off to a bad start for the Gassy Lassies as their showpiece first home game at the Estádio da Leaze was dramatically postponed at the last minute when Forest of Dean Ladies failed to raise a side.
Bristol Rovers head to Rochdale this weekend hoping to find some form again. Rovers are winless in three but will remain confident after their spirited come back last time out, coming back from 2-0 down with 12 minutes to go to draw 2-2 with Portsmouth. After an unbeaten September, Rovers were on the cusp of an automatic promotion place but one month on after one win in four, they have fallen down to 10th position.
Bristol Rovers entertain Portsmouth this weekend looking to bounce back after two defeats that ended their six game unbeaten run in League One. Rovers lost 2-0 to both Doncaster and bottom club Bolton this week meaning that they were the first side the latter defeated this season. Goals from Luke Murphy and Daryl Murphy were enough to see off the Gas who were outthought and outplayed by the league’s bottom side.
Bristol Rovers head to Yorkshire to face Doncaster Rovers this weekend buoyed by their impressive run of form. The Gas beat MK Dons 1-0 last time out to extend their unbeaten run in League One to six matches.
Bristol Rovers entertain MK Dons this weekend raring to go after their week off. The Gas were due to play Bury last time out but due to Bury’s financial situation off the pitch, they were expelled from the football league in August.
When I first met Mavis (Gas Girls Chairperson) he was pretty confident about the new club taking the Glos County Women’s by storm and four games in that prophesy seems to be unfolding.
Carabao Energy Drink has teamed up with GasCast to give eight lucky Gasheads the chance to win a pair of tickets to Bristol Rovers vs MK Dons on 12th October.
As I clicked on the ‘pay now’ button on the insanely complicated Bristol Rovers season ticket purchasing web page, I reflected on how it had come to this: I had just bought season tickets for two seats in the Family Stand.
How many times have you heard a Manager in an early season interview, having been asked, “Where do you think you will finish this season?” answer, “I’ll tell you after 10 games”. Those early season games are a terrible indication of where teams are going to finish aren’t they. Or are they?
At Rovers, most of the focus from our fans is of course on what happens on the pitch and how we can keep improving the playing side. However for me, excluding Graham of course, the three most important men at our club (who don’t always get as much credit as they deserve) are Wael Al-Qadi, Martyn Starnes and Tom Gorringe. These men work wonders off the pitch and without these three I feel we’d be nowhere near where we are.
