Doncaster Rovers vs Shrewsbury Town
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 22 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Keepmoat Stadium.
Donny just might be the best team in the competition at the moment. They are placed fourth in the table at the moment, and that too with two games in hand. In fact, they are trailing by just two points below toppers Portsmouth.
Moreover, with the second-placed Lincoln, and the third-placed Hull locking horns with each other next week, a great opportunity arises for Darren Moore’s men to climb into the podium.
On top of that, they have also scored the most number of goals in the competition. Meanwhile, Salop used to be one of the worst teams in the league. However, their back-to-back wins against two of the top-three teams in the past two game weeks, have changed the perception about them.
They might be the underdogs this Tuesday, but they surely are not going to surrender easily.
Doncaster Rovers vs Shrewsbury: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Steve Cotterill’s men had recorded four of the previous five overall wins.
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-0 win for them.
- They have lost just once at this venue since 2012.
- The hosts had failed to score in two of the former four clashes.
Doncaster Rovers vs Shrewsbury: Prediction
Donny are on a four-game winning run, and they had also recorded wins in six of the past seven fixtures. They also have failed to score at home just once in the whole of 2020, and that too back in January.
On the other hand, their opposite number are a relegation-battler, and have a total of three wins all through this league season. They are also on the road, and have to take on a team that’s been nigh unstoppable at their home.
Likely, expect Doncaster Rovers to have the edge this Tuesday. However, Cotterill’s men are on a two-match winning run on the road, against Hull and Lincoln – the teams placed second and third in the table.
On top of that, they also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
For the reasons, expect goals to come from both teams this match-day.
