Bristol Rovers vs Doncaster: Three Top Tips

Unbiased tips

Doncaster to win

Let's start this prediction off by telling you that Donny have won eight of the last 10 meetings between the sides including the last five. Throw in the fact that Bristol Rovers have lost their last six matches and things don’t look too bright for the second bottom side. Of course, Doncaster aren't flying at the moment either; they've not won since the 6th March. Still, there is nothing like a trip to the relegation fodder to change your fortunes.

Both teams not to score

With our prediction made that Doncaster will run out winners, we've made it clear we expect one team to score. We don't, however, expect Bristol Rovers to pose too much of an attacking threat. After all, they're averaging less than a goal per game all season and have failed to score in their last three home games.

Doncaster to win or draw, Bristol Rovers under 0.5 goals in the first half and under 3.5 goals in the match

This #getaprice bet combines our other tips with a little bit extra to boot to offer even better value. Firstly, the prospect of Rovers drawing the game is covered, which is a nice insurance to have given Donny's form. The rest of the bet is made up of the hosts failing to score in the first 45 and the 90 minutes not being a goalfest. Given we've already made the prediction that Bristol Rovers won't score in the game, we just need Doncaster not to score four; they've not managed that since November – even that was against seventh tier FC United of Manchester.

Another loss incoming for Barton and co

Bristol Rovers aren't destined to drop into League Two just yet but they need to start getting points on the board soon. The managerial appointment of Joey Barton hasn't worked out as yet although links with him leaving for Preston are bound to add to the problems at Memorial Stadium. Their opponents, Doncaster, could do with a few points too. The reason is very different though; if they can muster a little run then the playoffs become a realistic prospect once again.
