Gary Johnson knew that it would be a tall order to remain in the Championship and Town have secured just two victories to date which means they are rooted to the bottom of the table after fifteen games played.
Yeovil haven’t been disgraced in any of their matches although finding the back of the net has been a tough task, with nine goals managed to date and the Somerset team are the outsiders to claim victory at the Keepmoat Stadium on Friday night.
William Hill free bet offer 23/10 about an away victory which would put the visitors back in touch with the sides at the foot of the table, with the team looking to draw confidence from a recent 3-1 win against Nottingham Forest, even if this has been followed by defeats against Leeds and Wigan.
Paddy Madden had an excellent season in front of goal last term although the striker has failed to find the net during the current campaign, with Doncaster looking at this match as a fantastic opportunity to pull away from the drop zone.
Rovers were also promoted from League One last term and Paul Dickov is now charged with keeping the south Yorkshire club in the Championship, with Donny sitting 21st in the table after a mediocre first few months back in the second flight.
Since beating Leicester at the beginning of October, the team have taken just one point from their last four games and have been on the receiving end of a couple of hidings, with Reading and Middlesbrough both putting four past them.
However, a recent goalless draw at Barnsley stopped the rot and Rovers are the 13/10 favourites with Boylesports to claim a precious three points in this match which would see them jump up to 18th in the Championship table.
Goals have been in short supply too for the home side and one can’t help but feel we will witness a low-scoring encounter on Friday night in front of the Sky cameras, with Under 2.5 Goals looking an attractive bet at odds of 5/6 with BetVictor.
Doncaster have managed to score seven times in seven games at the Keepmoat and will be looking for a scrappy 1-0 victory against shot-shy opponents, with odds of 15/2 available that the home side get over the line by this scoreline.
