Rotherham vs Doncaster Prediction & Match Preview

Rotherham vs Doncaster
England – EFL Trophy
Date: Tuesday, 8 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).

As a win is essential for both teams, we can expect a fierce encounter this Tuesday, and goals at either end of the pitch is an expected outcome. The presence of the academy players from Old Trafford complicates things in the group, and this game practically presents an opportunity where either could be considered to be on equal footing.

  • Donny has not failed to find the back of the net in the prior ten years.

Rotherham vs Doncaster Prediction

The last home tie for Paul Warne’s men ended in a massive victory for them, with the players combining to score four goals against Coventry, which actually is a top-tier club in League One. The Millers had lost their opener in the EFL competition and needs a win this Tuesday to keep their hopes alive.

They do have the home advantage and have lost just once in their previous five match-days. On the contrary, their counterparts were winless in four of their prior five overall fixtures and are so in their prior seven trips on the road.

Moreover, the last time these two met, Warne’s men recorded a victory, and in fact, an away win is still to be produced in official h2h clashes.

As such, expect the hosts to come out on top this match-day. But taking into account the competitive nature of the game, Doncaster’s winning start in the competition, and the fact that their next and final tie will be against the Manchester United U21 side, the visitors will try their best to find the back of the net in this match-up, and as such, BTTS seems like a great option to back.
