It has been a good campaign by Doncaster this season, who have won four of their last six games and have had no trouble finding the back of the net.

On Tuesday night, they make the trip to Plymouth who are only a point behind them in the current standings, but having played a game more.

This is an interesting clash with the Pilgrims as underdogs on home turf to collect all three points.

Plymouth Preview – Can Plymouth pull off a home win?

It has been a positive return from Plymouth on home soil in League One action this season.

They have taken a W3 D1 record from their action on home turf in the division this season, averaging two goals per game.

The Pilgrims have only shipped the two goals in their four home fixtures as well.

Under 2.5 goals may be worth a look at 10/11 as just one of Plymouth’s four home games have made it above the goal line* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

Breaking down the home form of Plymouth this season, all four of their games have been against teams who are currently in the bottom half of the table.

So this will be their toughest test yet without question.

They are the underdogs in the match outright, trading at 2/1 to pick up three points* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

Looking at the goals which they have produced at Home Park, four of the six have been in the first half of games.

Our betting prediction:
Doncaster 1-goal winning margin

Bet at William Hill

(odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October)


Plymouth have lost their last two home games played against Doncaster, conceding three goals in both of those.

Last season it was a narrow 2-3 reverse for them in League One against Rovers.

But if you look back at the head to head form a little further, Plymouth have failed to win any of their last four, home and away, against Doncaster.

Will they come off second best again when they next meet them on Tuesday?


Doncaster Preview – Doncaster a threat on the road

Doncaster did suffer an upset in their last match, going down 2-1 at home against Crewe in a bit of an upset.

But out on the road, they have been holding themselves well, posting a W2 D1 record for the season on their travels.

The one loss there was at Wigan, a 1-0 defeat.

But interestingly in their last away fixture they collected a 1-0 win out at Portsmouth, who are sitting above them in the table.

They have also beaten fourth-placed Ipswich in their last three games as well.

So already this season Doncaster have proven themselves against some of the tougher opponents in League One.

In the match outright Doncaster are 7/5 odds-on to pick up the victory* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

Home and away combined, Doncaster have only failed to score in one league fixture this season, so we think that both teams netting on the net is viable.

Both teams to score in League One betting is at 7/10* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

The form of Doncaster does suggest that this is going to be a good, tight contest. The visitors are going to be in this.

Three of the four wins (home and away) that Doncaster have recorded this season have been by a margin of at least two goals.

They have yet to have been trailing at the halfway point of a game out on the road in this campaign.

So the half time draw does offer some appeal as well at 6/5 in League One betting* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).


Plymouth vs Doncaster Betting Advice

This is a tougher call than what the outright market is suggesting, we feel. We don’t think Plymouth are going to roll over easily on home soil.

They are yet to really be tested at Home Park by a team who look like a contender for a top six finish and that is the most interesting fact about this game.

Can the Pilgrims stick in there and avoid defeat? We don’t think so, but would imagine that if they go down, it will only be by a 1 goal margin.
