Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Doncaster Rovers play host to MK Dons at their Keepmoat Stadium in the League One round 11. The Donny suffered a heavy 6-0 loss to Ipswich Town on Tuesday evening, meaning that the lack of confidence could prove to be a big problem for the hosts. Both Vilca and Olowu are pushing for a start, with Gardner and Hiwula likely to drop to the bench. MK Dons, on the other hand, head into the match following a thrilling 3-3 draw with Fleetwood.
The Dons have been impressive in front of goal of late, and seeing that Doncaster produce much better showings at home than on the travels, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be summer signing Scott Twine, who scored a hat-trick in the midweek draw.
Highlighted Player (Reece James):
Reece James is a talented Chelsea defender who plays for Wigan Athletic on loan. Born in Redbridge, England on December 8, 1999, James started his youth career at Chelsea football academy at the age of 6. The talented teenager played for England U18 and U19 teams and he currently represents the U20 team on the international stage.
Reece James scored 3 goals in 45 appearances for Wigan in the 2018/2019 Championship campaign, but that did not help the Latics avoid relegation to the League One. His numbers from the 2018/2019 season are impressive as he completed 91 successful tackles, 54 blocks, 44 successful dribbles and 93 clearances.
James, on the other hand, has yet to find the net for the England U20 national team. His main position is right back, but he is capable of playing as both centre-back and defensive midfielder as well. Reece James turned professional in March 2017.
Highlighted Team (MK Dons):
Based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes Dons are a League One club that welcome their rivals at Stadium MK. The venue was opened in 2007 and can hold up to 30,500 spectators. Milton Keynes Dons play their home games in white shirts and white shorts, whilst their away kit is red.
The Dons are one of the youngest clubs in England as they were founded in 2004, but they are well known for youth development. English attacker is the club’s all-time top goal-scorer, netting 62 goals in 165 appearances for MK Dons. Dele Alli, who currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur, is the most famous footballer to have played for the Milton Keynes Dons, netting 18 goals in 62 appearances for the club in the league.
Speaking of notable coaches, it has to be noted that former Liverpool superstar Robbie Fowler and ex German international Dietmar Hamman were in charge of the club.
