Today's blog selection has picked itself, the other two teams have been well backed, the first from 1.83 down to 1.72 and the second, hammered from 2.25 in to 1.96.
DONCASTER ROVERS - PORT VALE
I am pretty sure that Rovers are the second best team in this league and if there is any justice, they will join Swansea in the Championship next season.
They have won eleven from 14, keeping ten clean sheets, including winning six from their last seven, conceding just a single goal.
Vale are resigned to relegation, have won just two from 22, with one clean sheet and are without a victory in 9 starts. They have conceded at least 3 goals in 6 of their last 11, allowing 26 goals in total ,over this sequence.
Their squad is far below the level required and they have signed too many non league players, the transition has been too great for most.
Roberts and Price are doubts for the hosts, but they are boosted by the return of the classy James Hayter. Rovers won the reverse fixture 3-1, scoring all their goals in a second half ,that they totally dominated. Both teams have gone in different directions since then and another two goal victory, is the minimum I forsee.
6.5 points Doncaster -1.25 goals 1.81 asian line.
