The Rovers are second in the standings and hold a 7 point lead over third placed Shrewsbury. So, a win here will keep them in the top two with two matches to play after this.

At the same time, they are still in the race for league title as top placed Wigan at a 3 point gap.

Doncaster on the other hand, are 14th in the table and are out of the play-off race. Unlike other teams, they have four matches left to play to close the league season.

Form Guide:

Doncaster were on an excellent run until their 1-0 narrow home defeat to Oxford on the weekend. Darren Ferguson’s team picked 3 wins and 3 draws from their previous 6 games.

The Rovers are one of the toughest teams to beat their home turf as well since they lost just 2 of their last 12 at the Keepmoat Stadium. The remaining 10 are equally split between 5 wins and 5 draws.

Blackburn Rovers haven’t lost a single league games since early February. Their current unbeaten streak stand at 13 matches with 9 wins and 4 draws.

Blackburn also boast of a strong away record in the league with their last 15 games producing 9 wins, 5 wins and 1 loss.

Doncaster vs Blackburn Rovers: Head-to-head

Only three meetings between the two sides in the past decade and Doncaster won 2 of those against 1 loss.

One of those Doncaster wins came earlier this season at Blackburn.

Doncaster vs Blackburn Rovers: Prediction

Blackburn are without a doubt the superior side here. But I cannot rule Doncaster out from this contest since they have the habit of making life difficult for teams visiting the Keepmoat Stadium.

Therefore, I believe the safe options are available from the goal markets. Doncaster scored in 8 of their last 9 home matches while Blackburn in 12 of their last 14 away games. So, btts has to be our prime pick with over 2.5 goals as an alternate option.

Doncaster vs Blackburn Rovers: Bet Tips

Both teams to Score @ 2.00 odd.

Over 2.5 goals @ 2.01 odd.
