Rochdale vs Doncaster
English League One
Date: Saturday, 13 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Crown Oil Arena (Rochdale).
Doncaster will be hoping to rebound from back-to-backs league losses on Saturday against Rochdale away at Crown Oil Arena. Donny dropped out of the top six in the League One ladder as a consequence of the mentioned thread. Grant McCann’s men failed to create in the build-up play, netting no goals at all in subsequent defeats to Accrington Stanley and Fleetwood Town.
The visitors should have space to regain the much-needed confidence in the final third. They are up against a defensively-poor Rochdale side. The hosts shipped two or more goals in three of last four league affairs. They sit 15th after 12 rounds and come into this in poor spirits having won just two points from last four matches in League One.
Rochdale vs Doncaster: Head-to-head
Rochdale lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into 23rd encounter with Donny.
I is interesting to mention that these two sides met each other in both FA Cup and EFL Trophy last season and it was Rochdale who came on top on both occasions.
League affairs saw teams snatching home wins.
Rochdale vs Doncaster: Prediction
Keith Hill has an interesting attacking line-up with Ian Henderson, Braden Inman and Zach Clough. They should be able to cause troubles in Donny’ s defense which shipped four goals to Fleetwood Town last weekend. Henderson has been the standout performer so far, bagging six goals in 12 appearances.
The visitors have a predator of their own in the like of John Marquis who has eight goals to his name so far in the season. The English forward bagged five goals in three games before his team failed to convert up front in last two league outings.
With such firepower on display, we just have to expect goals knowing that neither of the two sides has shown great meticulousness at the back in recent affairs.
