Latics head into Tuesday night's game three points behind league leaders Blackburn Rovers and two points behind second place Shrewsbury Town, but with three games in hand. Rovers are also set for action on Tuesday when they travel to AFC Wimbledon, before Paul Cook takes his side to Ewood Park next Sunday.

For the Pirates, a Sky Bet League One play-off place is still a realistic aim, with Darrell Clarke's men just seven points outside the top six in a queue of teams hoping to pounce before the end of the season.

HEAD-TO-HEAD RECORD

League: Latics 10 wins, Bristol Rovers 10 wins, 5 draws – scored 35, conceded 41

Latics’ away record: 1 win, 3 draws, 8 defeats – scored 11, conceded 30

It's always been a tough trip to Bristol for Latics over the years, picking up just one victory in 12 attempts, spanning across three of the Gas' grounds.

Latics are yet to win at the Memorial Stadium in four attempts, with their one victory coming at Twerton Park in September 1987, a 3-2 victory courtesy of Paul Beesley, David Hamilton and Bobby Campbell. Watch the action below!
