Doncaster vs Shrewsbury Prediction

Doncaster made full use of their home status the last match-day in the league, as they recorded a 1-0 win over Oxford United. Meanwhile, Shrewsbury managed to avoid a loss on the road against Bolton in their latest league encounter, as they settled for a 1-1 draw.

As things stand this Tuesday, the upper hand goes to Shrewsbury. The first and foremost reason would be their overall form, which is comparatively far better than that of Doncaster.

To make things clearer – Doncaster were winless in ten of their former thirteen games, and in six of their last eight appearances at home. On the other hand, Shrewsbury lost just three of their preceding overall nineteen match-ups, and are on an unbeaten run of five fixtures on the road.

Furthermore, Shrewsbury were winless in nine of their last ten away games, and conceded a total of just three goals from their prior nine match-ups away from home.

Moreover, Doncaster are winless against this opponent since 2015, and have been so at home since 2012.

Considering these observations, it’s projected that Shrewsbury should avoid the loss at the least this Tuesday, and take a minimum of one point from this fixture.

However, Doncaster might have some say in the proceedings of the match due to their home advantage. Also, despite both teams having conceded the same number of goals so far in the competition, Doncaster have scored an incredible eleven more than that of Shrewsbury.

In addition, Doncaster have scored at least one goal in their last six overall match-ups, and in 21 of their previous 24 in front of the home crowd.

Taking into account these new findings, it’s speculated that Doncaster should deny a clean sheet for the visitors, and thus the BTTS option looks very promising this match-day.
