Doncaster Rovers vs Plymouth Argyle
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 13 January 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: The Keepmoat Stadium (Doncaster).
Plymouth Argyle have not only escaped the danger zone, but they are now only seven points adrift of the playoffs spots after a marvellous run of four wins and a draw in last five league ties. They have thus moved lock on points with Saturday’s counterparts Doncaster Rovers who had gotten off to a much stronger start of the campaign last summer.
Irish midfielder Graham Carey has been one of the main catalysts for the Pilgrims’ rise as he took his league tally to six goals netting three times in last five matches. Carey scored the second goal in last weekend’s comprehensive win over the rock-bottomed Bury at Home Park. The Irishman is expected to be the main threat to Donny’s goal this weekend and punters who fancy trying with anytime goalscorer picks can back him to find the net at the sky-high 4.00 odds.
However, scoring goals against Doncaster Rovers has proven out to be quite a challenging task for most of the League One sides in this term. The Scottish manager Darren Ferguson has really found the way to tighten thing sup in the defense as of late since Doncaster only shipped two goals in last five matches in all competitions. This includes the narrow 0-1 defeat to Rochdale in last weekend’s FA Cup clash. The loss has leaven the Donny winless in last two matches after they shared spoils away at Peterborough United in the first league tie of the year.
Doncaster Rovers vs Plymouth Argyle: Head-to-head
Plymouth Argyle lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into their 11thg meeting with Doncaster.
However, the Donny came on top in the first match in this tern of League One demolishing the Pilgrims 0-3 on the road in late-September last year.
Prior to that game, Plymouth have won four on the trot against Doncaster Rovers.
Doncaster Rovers vs Plymouth Argyle: Prediction
The hosts are 1.61 favourites to get the spoils, but it is really hard to find the value there given that the Pilgrims are undefeated in last seven league matches.
We’ll thus go with Plymouth not to lose at 2.30 as the main betting call. Both teams have been very tough to break down lately which gives a strong value to the 1.95 odds offered for the Under 2.5 goals FT bet.
