Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Legendary Fratton Park will host Saturday’s League One game between Portsmouth and Doncaster Rovers. The Pompey are on a quest to return to the Championship, and, no doubt, back-to-back wins over Burton and MK Dons are giving fans a reason for optimism. Portsmouth are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Doncaster Rovers.
Wales international Ellis Harrison, who found the net at the weekend, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts. The Donny, on the other hand, were not in action at the weekend. The visitors suffered a 1-0 loss to Wigan before the international break, and, no doubt, they face a difficult task in the Fratton Park showdown. In their last encounter in the League One the Pompey outplayed the Donny, and we believe that the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Ellis Harrison):
Highlighted Team (Doncaster):
Based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Doncaster Rovers are an English football club that compete in the League One. Keepmoat Stadium is the club’s home ground. The venue was opened on August 3, 2007 and it can hold up to 15,231 spectators.
Doncaster Rovers footballers wear white shirts with red stripes and white shorts when playing on home soil, whereas the club’s away colours are dark blue and red. Speaking of the Rovers’ history, the club was established back in 1879 by Alber Jenkins, who worked as a fitter at Doncaster’s Great Northern Railway.
Doncaster Rovers shared the spoils with Rawmarsh in their first ever game. The likes of Rotherham United, Barnsley, Grimsby Town and Scuntorpe United are considered the club’s main rivals. Over the years Doncaster fans have developed a rivalry with Plymout Argule as there have been fireworks in their games. Donny Dog, that wears a red and white jersey, is the club’s mascot.
