Doncaster Rovers vs Shrewsbury Town Betting Tips – EFL League One, 7th January 19.45pm

Darren Moore’s Doncaster Rovers and Sam Ricketts’ Shrewsbury Town square off at the Keepmoat Stadium in EFL League One on Tuesday night. These two sides are very evenly matched on paper, as the Shrews are currently just a point and a place above Donny in the third-tier table. Both teams still have eyes for the play-offs, so three points for either in midweek could be vital.

Doncaster Rovers News and Form – Can Moore’s men make it two wins on the spin?

Darren Moore’s Doncaster Rovers have been in poor form lately, losing half of their previous eight across all competitions. However, Donny did pick up an impressive win over Oxford United last time out, with Reece James scoring the only goal of the game.

Doncaster have struggled for consistency this season, winning back-to-back league games on just two occasions. However, they have won two of their last three in League One.


Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


Rovers have blown hot and cold at the Keepmoat this term, winning six, drawing four and losing three of 13 home league matches. Their victory over Oxford on New Year’s Day was the club’s first league victory on home soil since beating Bristol Rovers in October.

After last Wednesday’s impressive win over high-flying Oxford, can Doncaster make it back-to-back home victories in this one?

Key-Facts – Doncaster Rovers vs Shrewsbury Town

  • Shrewsbury have lost just one of their last ten away matches in all competitions
  • The Shrews are 14th in League One, with Rovers a point and a place behind


Shrewsbury Town News and Form – Will the Shrews extend unbeaten away run?

Sam Ricketts’ Shrewsbury Town have been a tough nut to crack of late. In fact, Rotherham United are the only team to have beaten the Shrews since November. Last Saturday, Town held EFL Championship side Bristol City to a 1-1 draw at Ashton Gate in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

However, Shrewsbury have struggled to get going in League One lately, winning only two of their last six. Since back-to-back wins over Coventry City and Blackpool, the Blues have taken one point from a possible six, losing at home to Rotherham and drawing with Bolton Wanderers at the University of Bolton Stadium in late December.

Shrewsbury head to South Yorkshire unbeaten in their last five league and cup away games. Can they stretch their undefeated away run with a positive result at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday night?

Doncaster Rovers vs Shrewsbury Town Predictions

Shrewsbury Town win: Ricketts’ Shrews are a hard team to play against, especially when they are away from New Meadow. One defeat in ten away league and cup games tells you all you need to know about their mentality on their travels.

Doncaster would have been hoping for a play-off place at the very least this season, but things have not quite gone to plan for Moore and his side so far. After 21 matches played, Rovers are five points behind and find themselves in the bottom half. Donny have games in hand, but three points on Tuesday is essential.

However, I can see the away team leaving Yorkshire with maximum points. The Shrewsbury win is nicely priced at 14/5. Town have scored one goal in four of their last five on the road. Check out the tasty odds of 9/1 for the visitors to win 1-0 in midweek.
