Doncaster vs Accrington Prediction & Match Preview

Doncaster vs Accrington
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Keepmoat Stadium (Doncaster).

Doncaster has a legitimate shot to finish in the top-six, and thus qualify for the playoffs. As of now, they are in the sixth spot in the league table and have a four-point lead over nearest challenger Peterborough. They are also one of the three teams in the whole competition to win four of the last five league fixtures.

With three more ties to go, Accrington surely is taking their sweet time to secure their safety. They have a buffer of just three points to fall on, and teams below them are desperate to avoid the boot. Their worrying offense has seemed them return the second-fewest number of goals in the league.

  • Except for once, Doncaster has scored two or more goals in every tie at this venue.
  • Three of the last five overall encounters saw Doncaster registering two or more goals.

Doncaster vs Accrington Prediction

Doncaster has a huge opportunity in front of them. With just three games to go in the league, they need to defend the four-point lead the team has at the sixth and final playoff spot. It helps that they are at home, and is taking on a side much lower in the table.

Also, not a single h2h tie has seen the away team taking the win, while Doncaster has found the back of the net in every encounter at home. The earlier fact also means that Doncaster is unbeaten at home.

Going on, three of the last five h2h ties, and every such one at this venue bar one, saw Doncaster recording two or more goals. In addition, Doncaster registered two or more goals in seven of their last ten home ties, while Accrington conceded in 13 of their last 15 matches on the road, and two or more goals in four of their last six away fixtures as well.

As such, expect the hosts to win and score two or more goals.
