Massive game for Rovers. They have been big spenders in this league, at least in the salary stakes and have on paper, a fine squad. Unlucky with both injuries and the run of the ball, but those excuses only go so far and today, is very much, make or break for them. Failure to win will leave them too many points behind, too many good teams , even at this earlystage of the season. They have 3 of their next 4 away from the Keepmoat Stadium, starting with a daunting trip to inform Nottingham Forest. Donny are boosted by the return of Paul Heffernan, who can start alongside James Hayter, this combination is capable of terrorizing League 1 defences.

This is something of a transistion year for the visitors and they have been finding goals very hard to come by. They have lost the last two to Rovers and I expect them to complete an unwanted hat-trick, against a motivated host.

5 points Doncaster -1/2 ball 1.91 general quote.


Dons are another of my favourites and are looking for a 7th straight league win, their 8th in all competitions. They have been very potent at home, averaging 2.25 goals per start. As we discused in midweek, Lincoln are in dire form and conceded another 5 goals against Hartlepool. I expect an improved performance from them today, infront of the TV cameras, but doubt it will be enough.

I love a report of MK from a recent opponents site, which, in a nutshell said, that they are Leon Knight and ten giants, who just come at you in wave after wave. You cannot take a breather by putting the ball out for a throw in , as Jude Sterling lauches it into your area, like it was fired from a cannon, from anywhere inside your own half. This is true, MKD are an extremely tall, fit athletic team, who never give you a moments rest and they can secure a 4 points lead at the top of League 2 with a win today.

Despite this being shown live on television, the hosts have sold a huge number of tickets and are motivated to put on a show, in the first ever televised game from StadiumMK.

5.5 points MK Dons -1 ball 1.87 asian line.... now 1.74

Good Luck.
