Doncaster Rovers vs Accrington Stanley predictions, betting tips and match preview for the League One fixture on Tuesday 23rd April 2019. Doncaster are looking to hold on to their play-off position while Accrington are just two points above the relegation zone.
Bet £10 on Doncaster to win 2-1 to win £80 at Ladbrokes.
The hosts are currently in sixth position in the League One table, three points above seventh placed Peterborough United who have played the same number of matches. Doncaster have a much better goal difference so they do have a bit more of a cushion over the team just outside the play-offs, but it is still all to play four with just two more matches left after tonight’s fixture.
Accrington are at the other end of the table and still looking over their shoulder. They should be OK but are just two points above the relegation places. Their saving grace is that they have tonight’s match in hand, and there are two teams below them, also just outside the relegation zone. They have lost five of their last seven matches though and are in free fall. A win tonight looks unlikely, but League One has been very unpredictable this season.
Doncaster have won their last three home matches now but were beaten 2-0 at Sunderland at the weekend, that result shouldn’t have dented their confidence too much though so for the first of tonight’s Doncaster vs Accrington predictions, we’re backing the hosts to win. Accrington have scored six goals in their last three away matches though, so use the BTTS and win odds to get 11/5 with Bet Victor for our main betting tip.
Doncaster’s top scorer this season is John Marquis but he’s only scored once in his last 12 matches now, so for our anytime goalscorer betting tip on this match, we’re going for another Donny player having a good season in Mallik Wilks. He’s also the better odds of the two and has scored 14 goals in League One so far, including three in his last five matches.
Accrington have been scoring goals of late but their defensive struggles are clear to see and they’ve now conceded 13 in their last six away matches. If Doncaster can carry on their good home form then we’re expecting them to get a couple of goals tonight, and Wilks looks like a good option for our second Doncaster vs Accrington betting tip in League One today.
The correct score prediction for this match is a 2-1 Doncaster victory, which backs up the earlier selection of a Donny win with BTTS. Even though they have been really strong at home, the 2-0 loss at Sunderland at the weekend does show that they are susceptible to conceding goals and they have done exactly that in four of their last six home matches too.
Doncaster to win – 3/5
Draw – 10/3
Accrington to win – 5/1
