Doncaster vs Sunderland Match Preview
Sunderland travel to Doncaster for their Matchday 24 clash just days after their Boxing Day clash against Bolton Wanderers, as they look to end an eight-match winless streak and end the year on a positive note. They fell six points behind the top 6 as they struggled to bag points despite finding the net on the regular and Phil Parkinson will now be desperate for more.
Black Cats held off Coventry (1-1) and Blackpool (1-1) in their last four outings but saw more disappointing losses to Burton (1-2) and Gillingham (1-0) along the way. They have seen nothing but losses on the road since early October and ending such a streak will be crucial if they’re to challenge the top 6.
Doncaster have seen woes of their own and they struggled to turn clashes their way just as much lately, with a six-match winless streak now behind them. They have earned just two league points along the way but have shown off as a tough side to outclass in front of the home fans, which promises a solid challenge now as well.
Rovers have seen just one loss (0-3 to Leicester City U21 in EFL Trophy) in their last five outings at this ground and we’ve seen them hold off Burton (2-2), MK Dons (1-1), and Accrington Stanley (1-1) as well as beat Wimbledon (2-0) along the way. They will now want more of the same but have to put disappointing displays of recent behind them.
We don’t feel they can and we feel Sunderland will now be able to end the losing streak on the road, as we stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils in a Draw priced at 12/5 with bet365. We’ve seen both sides struggling to turn clashes their way and this has us hoping for another such occasion.
Neither of the two have been quite impressive in the final third and while this could be where all of their troubles have been coming from, we feel we won’t see too many goals between them now either and we’re backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 20/23 with BetVictor.
