Doncaster Rovers Prediction – Can Doncaster put a run together?

Although Doncaster Rovers registered a 1-0 home win against Oxford United the hosts still dropped down to 15th place on the League One ladder and their consistency also hasn’t been the best in recent times either.

An earlier 3-0 win away from home at Peterborough United has also been offset by defeats to AFC Wimbledon and Sunderland as well as a point in a 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley, so the prospect of a straight win on Tuesday night may not be as clear-cut as the hosts may anticipate.

An overall home record of 6-4-3 19/14 looks reasonable enough though but in recent weeks, despite losing just 1 of their last 6 matches at the Keepmoat, Rovers have also gained just 2 wins during this period too.

Fear not though, 7 of their 13 matches at home have resulted in under 2.5 goals while their last two meetings against Shrewsbury Town have also been low-scoring affairs, resulting in 2-0 and 0-0 respectively.

Shrewsbury Town Prediction – Can Shrewsbury build on FA Cup result?

The visitors sit one league position and one point above their Tuesday night’s hosts ahead of this fixture in League One as The Shrews look to build upon their heroics in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.

Shrewsbury Town held Championship side Bristol City to a 1-1 draw away from home at Ashton Gate and they’ll now have home advantage for the replay scheduled for next Tuesday night. The visitors will now turn their attentions back to the bread and butter of League One though this Tuesday as they look for all three points which would lift them up into the top half of the division.

Recent results in the league have been pretty solid for Shrewsbury as the Salop side have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches overall which was a 2-1 loss at home to high-flying Rotherham United, but The Shrews have also recorded wins against Coventry City and Blackpool too.

An away record of 3-5-3 7/9 doesn’t appear to be too great though, but with 9 of Shrewsbury’s 11 away matches resulting in under 2.5 goals to date this season, this looks the best option for this clash.


Key-Facts – Doncaster Rovers vs Shrewsbury Town

  • 7 of Doncaster’s 13 matches at home have resulted in under 2.5 goals
  • 9 of Shrewsbury’s 11 away matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals
  • The last two meetings between Doncaster and Shrewsbury have been under 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

Doncaster and Shrewsbury seem fairly evenly matched so this could end up being a low-scoring affair at The Keepmoat.
