Rochdale roll to continue

The form book screams ‘home win' for this game between Rochdale and Doncaster despite the fact it is the hosts staring relegation in the face. A 10 game form table has Rochdale 8th with Donny down in 23rd, which is proof of how misleading the table can be at times like this. From the last 30 points available Doncaster have managed to take five. Rochdale have taken 11 from the last 15 they played for. It's given them a real chance of staying in the division from absolutely nowhere. If they come into the game with the mentality of 90 minutes ago, they'll beat Doncaster. Their biggest downfall will be them – have they licked their wounds over Tuesday's throwaway? It's vital they have.

Expect the goals to flow

Take the time to look how these two have performed over the season will show you that their games have had the entertainment factor even if the ball hasn't always bounced kindly for them. Saturday could be a similar deal. Across the season Doncaster have averaged 2.8 goals per match with Rochdale a little bit further on at 3.0. If you look at each sides last five games, it's a fairly consistent theme. Rochdale's average is up at 3.2 with 16 goals shared across the five games whilst Doncaster sit at 13 goals and an average of 2.6. That tells us that neither side are great at keeping things tight!

Rochdale to open the scoring

Our final prediction is a simple one. We are backing Rochdale to open the scoring. The logic for this bet is very straight forwards. Rochdale have opened the scoring in four of their last five games whilst Doncaster have conceded first in four of the previous five. Throw into the mix that it's Rochdale that need the points and we expect them to come steaming out of the blocks.
