Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Doncaster and Wycombe face each other at Keepmoat Stadium on day 13 of the new League One campaign. Doncaster continue with their old habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, with the team eyeing their third consecutive triumph in front of home fans. Turkey teenager Tiago Cukur is widely expected to return to the starting XI after finding the net in the triumph over MK Dons.
The Chairboys, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the League One ahead of Saturday’s clash. Since the visitors have been impressive in front of goal of late, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting in the English third tier Doncaster defeated Wycombe 3-1, and you should know that 13 goals in total have been netted in the previous four encounters between the two sides.
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 (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
