Donny to taste another defeat
Neither of these sides have anything to play for as the season heads for its close and neither fan base will mind as good form is in short supply. Doncaster have managed one win in five at home including losing the last three. Fleetwood have lost their last two matches but when it comes to away form they've actually been reasonable of late. They lost to Hull last time but prior to that they had collected taken 10 points from 12. It's that little run that gives us the confidence to make the prediction that they'll win on Saturday.
Fleetwood to keep a clean sheet
Doncaster's recent run of poor form has been underpinned by being weak in both boxes. For this prediction we are looking at their inability to score goals. They've netted just seven goals across their past 10 games; that stat becomes three in five if you focus on their recent performances at the Keepmoat. Fleetwood haven't really been free-scoring either but they don't give much away. They've conceded seven in their last 10 fixtures. Again, when turning an eye to their away form it becomes just three goals against in five games along with three clean sheets in that period. What does it all mean? A tough day for the Donny attack, again.
The last of our tips is a rather unique #GetAPrice wager. There is unlikely to be a glut of goals in this affair given Fleetwood's last five on the road have seen an overall game average of 1.8 goals with Doncaster's previous five at home have averaged 2.4. If you break our prediction down further things start to make even greater sense. Not one of Fleetwood's last five away matches would have broken the goal scoring elements of the bet with just one draw recorded. Doncaster have also had just one draw in five home games whilst three of those last five meet the ‘under goals' requirement.
Pre-match stats for Doncaster vs Fleetwood
Doncaster dreaming of a summer vacation
With such little time remaining in the season it's fair to say this match is an absolute dead rubber with the teams placed 13th and 15th respectively. Doncaster's form has been absolutely atrocious of late and they'll be desperate to see the back of this season now whilst Fleetwood will have eyes on the summer window too having gone through managerial change mid-season. It's unlikely to be a match that attracts many spectators!
