Doncaster Rovers vs Sunderland
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 23 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: The Keepmoat Stadium (Doncaster).
Two promotion contenders are going to face each other in the 15th round of English League One on Tuesday evening.
Home side is sitting on the 6th place and they want to remain in the promotion playoff zone. They have been in variable form lately as the hosts managed to book two victories in the last five rounds.
Grant McCann’s side is doing a very good job in the front, however their defence should tighten up their lines. Doncaster Rovers suffered just one defeat when playing in front of their fans, but they’ve also been involved in three draws.
Sunderland are challenging the direct promotion spot as they are just a point behind the top two, but they’ve also played one game less than their rivals. The visitors lost just one match so far in the season and their winless streak lasts for six matches in all competitions.
Josh Maja and the lads are performing very well when playing away from home as they managed to get back home with a win four times from seven outings. They want to continue their very good form and try to bounce back to the Championship.
Doncaster vs Sunderland: Head-to-head
These two sides have met just once so far in their history, that match took pace back in 2015. It was a friendly clash, hosted also by Doncaster Rovers, and the hosts managed to celebrate a 2-0 victory. However, this one is their first official match and we’ll see who is going to be better in this one.
Doncaster vs Sunderland: Prediction
This is going to be a very tricky match for prediction as both sides are aiming one of the promotion spots. However, the visitors have been in better form lately and they might be able to continue their unbeatable streak by snatching all three points from this one.
Both sides are putting very good performances in front of the oppositions’ goal and they are more than capable of scoring against any side in the league. Therefore, we are expecting to see at least one goal in each net in this clash.
