Doncaster vs Luton Town
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 8 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster.
Doncaster Rovers are yet to concede a goal in front of the home crowd this season.
Can they keep such fine defensive form going and make it four clean sheets on the bounce at the start of the League One campaign on Saturday when the recently-promoted Luton Town come to visit The Keepmoat Stadium?
It will be quite a challenge for the hosts knowing that the Hatters enter the game high on confidence following most recent successes.
After a rather poor kick off to the higher division campaign, Luton seem to have found the winning formula as they won three and drew one of past four games in all competitions ahead of this trip to Doncaster.
Nathan Jones’ men were pretty impressive in the final third along the way, bagging a fine eight-goal tally in last four matches.
Doncaster vs Luton Town: Head-to-head
These two sides played each other in the League Two football back in 2016/17 season when Luton Town took four points from two games with Donny who managed to secure the promotion back then.
Overall, the draw was by far the most frequent of outcomes happening on four occasions in six H2H games between the two teams.
Both teams found the back of the net in five of six H2H games.
Doncaster vs Luton Town: Prediction
Both the H2H trend and Luton’s recent form suggest goals at The Keepmoat and we must say the 1.80 odds offered for goals at both ends look quite attractive here.
The hosts did get off to a fine start to the new season with back-to-back wins over Southend United and Wycombe Wanderers in two opening rounds, but they are winless ever since (three draws and losses apiece in last six outings in all competitions).
The draw somehow seems to be the closest of three outcomes and we see the best value in backing it at 3.40 odds knowing four of six H2H games ended without a winner.

BTTS @ 1.80 (4/5)
Draw @ 3.40 (12/5).
