Blackburn Rovers vs Doncaster
English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Ewood Park, Blackburn.
Blackburn Rovers are far away from being considered as serious playoff candidate in English Championship, but this squad has very unique playstyle. They are the most efficient squad in the league, scoring 38 goals in 23 duels. A big majority of those came from fantastic striker Adam Armstrong. Can he help the team to eliminate Doncaster Rovers from the FA Cup this Saturday?
Visitors are playing really good football lately, managing to win four out of the last five divisional outings and climb up to 4th place. We wouldn’t be surprised to see these two squads play in the same tier next season. In terms of the odds, hosts are big favorites for the win at 1.66 rate.
Blackburn Rovers vs Doncaster Head-to-head
Interestingly, these two sides already locked horns once this season. That encounter happened in August at Ewood Park as part of League Cup. After a lot of drama Blackburn have won the match 3-2 thanks to Armstrong’s goal just ten minutes before the end.
All time stats are slightly going in favour of Rovers too. Blackburn have three wins in comparison to Doncaster’s two.
Total number of goals scored so far is 13, which averages 2.66 per clash.
Blackburn Rovers vs Doncaster Prediction
Head manager Tony Mowbray is surely not satisfied with the recent form and results of his squad. Blackburn Rovers have finally returned to winning ways last weekend with a 2-0 win over Birmingham City at St Andrews. Prior to that success, they were defeated by Stoke City and Huddersfield Town, slipping into the lower part of the table. As already mentioned above Adam Armstrong has singlehandedly carried the team in numerous occasions this season, scoring 16 goals in 22 appearances.
He is definitely your option number one for the goalscorers market. Back line has kept only one clean sheet in the last nine matches though, which is why we will back a lot of goals on Saturday. Doncaster have scored nine goals in the last five domestic appearances, and won’t go down that easily.
