Predictions and Best Odds for Walsall vs Doncaster

Walsall will be looking to finish the season with a win after failing to do so for nine straight matches.

Both Teams to Score

This is one of those matches that don't have a relevant result to contemplate, but there is a desire for the home team to end the season on a positive note after going winless for some time. Looking at the first Walsall vs Doncaster prediction, in three out of the last five matches between these teams, either side found themselves on the scoresheet, and this could be the occurring situation once again as both teams don't have any significant motive to play for in the final match of their season.

Walsall to Win

Checking the Walsall vs Doncaster h2h record, we can see that either team has won twice while one match ended in a draw. Also, their current standing in the league reflects the same thing with Doncaster being only three points better than Walsall and both lying in the lower part of the rankings. However, it is interesting to note the contrast in their performances this season. Doncaster has won 16 matches, five more than their opponent, but no team has played more draws than Walsall at 19. At the same time, Doncaster has the second-worst record in the league when it comes to the number of losses, they accumulated 19 for the year.

There isn't much to play for when it comes to the final placement within the league standings and looking from the bettors' perspective, this could be a good thing with so many options available. However, on the other side, sometimes more means a lot of confusion. If you are one of those, check out our football predictions today page for some suggestions. Here are a few options for the match in question: Draw with BTTS gets you odds of 7/2 (4.50) – 22.2% and on a more risky side, Walsall winning the First-Half with a 0:1 Handicap will award bettors with odds up to 7/1 (7.00) – 14.3%.

Team Information, Walsall vs Doncaster Lineups, and Match Preview

Walsall

Playing 19 draw games took its toll on Walsall players who surely wondered what it takes to win regularly. They avoided a dramatic conclusion to their season when it comes to their league status, but not being able to win and fight for promotion playoffs was frustrating.

Potential lineup: Evans, Low, McEntee, Monthe, White, Knowles, Comley, Gordon, Hutchinson, Stevens, Wilkinson.

Doncaster

The guest team hasn't been a lot more successful compared to their opponents. It is interesting how they managed to lose 22 times which is the second-worst record in the league this season, and still not being in trouble when it comes to the relegation battle. The reason for this unusual circumstance is that they only had seven draw matches with 16 wins in total which gave them enough points to feel comfortable most of the season despite losing so much.

Potential lineup: Jones, Rowe, Williams, Faulkner, Molyneux, Close, Biggins, Seaman, Barlow, Miller, Westbrooke.

Player to Watch: Danny Johnson

There weren't many more important players this season for Walsall than Danny Johnson who only played just above 50 percent of all available minutes, but still managed to lead the team in scoring with 13 goals and also adding a couple of assists in the process.

Starting lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.
