Doncaster vs Bury
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 17th April 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Keepmoat Stadium (Doncaster).
It is a do-or-die game for Bury when they travel to Doncaster on Tuesday evening. The Shakers must win their remaining four games of the season, so dropping points at Keepmoat Stadium will confirm their relegation to League Two.
Doncaster Rovers have plenty of incentives to play for as well as their gap with the drop zone is only 8 points. With some momentum on their side, this is a kind of match they must target for three points.
The Rovers bagged a 2-1 win at MK Dons on the weekend are on a five match unbeaten run with 3 wins and 2 draws. They were on the road for the past three matchdays and 7 points from possible 9 give them much needed confidence to finish the season in style.
On the other hand, Bury are on a 7 match losing streak. They showed some fighting spirit in the recent 3-2 home loss against Northampton. Yet another defeat leave them with shattered morale and confidence. The equation needed for survival from now on is a herculean one as well. So, expect little from this team in the final weeks of the season.
Doncaster won 3, lost 2 and drew 2 of the last 7 meetings with Bury in all competitions.
The last four meetings between the sides saw under 2.5 goals.
Doncaster are unbeaten against Bury in recent years with 2 wins and a draw from three games.
Yet, both teams scored in those three games at Keepmoat Stadium.
No surprised here, this one will go in as a comfortable home win in my books, as few teams have come to Keepmoat Stadium and upset Doncaster in the second half of the season.
Keep an eye on Doncaster forward John Marquis who have 13 goals to his name this season. He is on a hot streak having netted 5 times in his last five appearances for the club, including a double against MK Dons on the weekend. He could be backed as any-time goal-scorer here.
