Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Gillingham and Doncaster Rovers face each other at Priestfield Stadium in an all-League One clash in round 2 of the FA Cup. The Gills did well to beat Sunderland after extra-time in the opening match of their FA Cup campaign, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of the Donny. You should bear in mind that Gillingham are undefeated in the previous six home games in the prestigious cup competition.
Doncaster have been having their ups and downs in the 2019/2020 League One season, and, as a result, they sit in the middle of the table. With only two points separating the Gills and the Donny in the League One standings, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. In their last meeting in a competitive match, the two teams shared the spoils.
Highlighted Player (Ousseynou Cisse):
Born in Suresnes, France on April 7, 1991, Ousseynou Cisse is a defensive midfielder who plays for Gillingham in the League One. After spending his youth career at Jouy-le-Moutier, Paris Saint-Germain and Amiens, Cisse continued playing for les Licornes at senior level, making 36 league appearances for the club.
The 195-cm-tall footballer played for the likes of Dijon, Rayo Vallecano, Wassland-Beveren (loan), Tours and Milton Keynes Dons as well before signing a deal with League One side Gillingham in the summer of 2019.
Ousseynou Cisse joined the Gills on a free transfer effective and he is expected to make his League One debut August 3, 2019, when Gillingham kick off the new season with a match against Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium. The French player is mostly used as a defensive midfielder, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a centre-back as well.
Highlighted Team (Doncaster):
Based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Doncaster Rovers are an English football club that compete in the League One. Keepmoat Stadium is the club’s home ground. The venue was opened on August 3, 2007 and it can hold up to 15,231 spectators.
Doncaster Rovers footballers wear white shirts with red stripes and white shorts when playing on home soil, whereas the club’s away colours are dark blue and red. Speaking of the Rovers’ history, the club was established back in 1879 by Alber Jenkins, who worked as a fitter at Doncaster’s Great Northern Railway.
Doncaster Rovers shared the spoils with Rawmarsh in their first ever game. The likes of Rotherham United, Barnsley, Grimsby Town and Scuntorpe United are considered the club’s main rivals. Over the years Doncaster fans have developed a rivalry with Plymout Argule as there have been fireworks in their games. Donny Dog, that wears a red and white jersey, is the club’s mascot.
