Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Doncaster Rovers will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back losses to the likes of Gillingham and Shrewsbury Town when they host Wycombe Wanderers at the Keepmoat Stadium. The Donny are seven points behind the play-offs berth, meaning that Saturday’s football match is of big importance for the home side. It has to be noted, though, that Fejiri Okenabirhie has yet to serve his ban.
The Chairboys aim to build on back-to-back wins over Bolton Wanderers and Tranmere Rovers, and a triumph over the Donny could see them regain their spot in top two. Even though Doncaster are tough to beat at home, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the visiting team. In the first meeting of the season Wycombe defeated Doncaster 1-0, with Joe Jacobson scoring the only goal of the game.
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 (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.
