Doncaster vs Shrewsbury
EFL League One
Date: Tuesday, 21 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: The Keepmoath Stadium (Doncaster).
In the 4th round of English League One, Doncaster Rovers are going to take on Shrewsbury Town.
The hosts had a pretty disappointing season last time as they failed to challenge one of the promotion spots. Moreover, they finished in the bottom half of the table as their poor finish of the campaign pushed them down to the 15th position.
Grant McCann’s side was producing a fair number of goals, while their defence should have been tighter.
Doncaster Rovers cannot be proud of their home record as they celebrated only seven victories in front of their fans. This side opened the current campaign with two victories, but they failed to a defeat in the latest round.
Shrewsbury Town were so close to the promotion last season as they have been playing very disciplined football, but they remained at 3rd place. The visitors then managed to reach the finals of the playoffs, but failed to a 2-1 defeat against Rotherham United after the extra time.
James Bolton and the lads have been one of the tightest sides in the competition, however they haven’t started the current campaign so successfully. The visitors snatched just a point from the opening three rounds and they need to start converting their chances into goals.
Doncaster vs Shrewsbury: Head-to-head
Both sides booked a good record in their head to head clashes and Doncaster Rovers booked one victory more than their rivals. In the last five encounters, home fans were unable to celebrate the victory of their lads.
Doncaster vs Shrewsbury: Prediction
This is going to be a tight clash and although the visitors are not enjoying a good form, they might be able to remain undefeated in this one. We are going to follow the tradition of their clashes and the hosts will miss the chance to celebrate once again.
Shrewsbury Town continued with their tight clashes and although they scored just once this season, they are still very hard to crack. As their head to head clashes haven’t been too efficient, this one will remain under 2.5 margin.
