Shrewsbury Town vs Doncaster Rovers Match Preview
Doncaster Rovers are enjoying much the better League One season of these clubs and are fancied to maintain their promotion push with victory on their trip to Shropshire.
Rovers have improved significantly this season under former Peterborough manager Grant McCann and are in with every chance of contesting the play-offs.
Going into Saturday’s derby match away to Scunthorpe (result not known at the time of writing) Donny had lost only three of their previous 19 matches, the latest being an FA Cup fifth-round tie against Crystal Palace.
Their fortunes have diverged with those of Shrewsbury, who were beaten by Rotherham in last season’s play-off final but have not been the same team since manager Paul Hurst left in the summer for an ill-fated spell at Ipswich.
Sam Ricketts took over in early December but the problem for the Shrews has been too many draws, which have left them firmly entrenched in what is a wide-open relegation battle.
Although both of these teams are better at home, which is a worry from a Doncaster perspective, we are backing Rovers to come out on top for they have a good record at this venue and quite simply look much the superior team on this season’s evidence.
