Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Priestfield Stadium pits together Gillingham and Doncaster Rovers. Gillingham aim to build on a 3-2 win over Blackpool Brandon Hanlan scored the winner in the fifth minute of the stoppage time, and you should bear in mind that the hosts are undefeated in the previous twelve league fixtures. Regan Charles-Cook, who came from the bench and found the net in the 3-2 victory over the Seasiders, is pushing for a start.
As expected, the Donny defeated rock-bottom Bolton 2-1 at home on Tuesday evening, with the team keeping their hopes of securing a top-six finish alive. Doncaster Rovers have been in a fine form of late, and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. It has to be noted that 15 goals in total have been netted in the previous four meetings between the two sides.
