Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Doncaster’s pride will be at stake when they take on Burton on the penultimate day of the season. The Donny failed to secure the League One survival, but they looked sharp in front of goal in a 3-3 draw with Shrewsbury. Doncaster’s injury list is pretty long, with all Okenabirhie, Close, John, Anderson, Taylor, and Hiwula-Mayifuila missing out.
The Brewers, on the other hand, did well to beat Rotherham United on Monday, with the team remaining in 16th place in the standings. Since Burton have a chance to secure a top-half finish, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the away side. All Saydee, Shaughnessy, and Moult are pushing for a start, while both Adlene Guedioura and Ciaran Gilligan remain in the recovery room for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Tom Anderson):
Known for his heading and no-nonsense defending, the 1.92 m tall center back, is an English footballer who plays for Doncaster Rovers in the third tier of English Football. Anderson was born in Burnley, on the 2nd of September, 1993. He joined Burnley's youth academy at the age of seven and went on to sign his first professional contract with the club in May 2012. The club then sent him out on loan to Conference Premier Club Barrow, where he made his first professional appearance on the 11th of August,2011, in a 0-0 draw against Telford United.
A further string of loans to Conference clubs Hyde, Halifax, and Lincoln City, League Two club Carlisle and League One club Chesterfield, succeeded his time at Harrow. On the 31st of January, 2018, Anderson joined his current club Doncaster Rovers initially on a year's loan before signing a two-year contract with the club in May.
This permanent switch ended his 18 years-long relationship with parent club Burnley during which, he never once made an appearance for the senior team. On the International front, the 26-year-old has never represented his country at any level.
Highlighted Team (Burton):
Burton Albion are one of the four clubs that secure promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. The Brewers welcome their rivals at Pirelli Stadium, the venue that was opened in 2005. The capacity of the stadium is 6,912, while the seating capacity of the venue is 2,034.
Burton Albion won the FA Trophy in 1987, with the team winning Football League Two in 2015. During the club’s non-League period, the Brewers’ local rivals were Nuneaton Borough, Tamworth, Stafford Rangers and Gresley Rovers, but while they were playing in the Football League the club’s rivals were Crewe, Port Vale, Notts County and Chesterfield.
Derby County are considered Burton Albion’s rivals as well, but the rivalry with the Rams is rather friendly. The colour of Burton Albion’s home kit is black and yellow, while they wear white and grey jerseys on the travels.
