Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Doncaster Rovers will be looking to build on a splendid 7-1 win over Southend United when they take on Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on Matchday 16. The Donny aim to climb to the play-offs berth in the League One standings and we predict that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match against Tranmere Rovers.
The Super Whites, on the other hand, are only one point clear of the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Doncaster and considering that their defence looked pretty shaky in a 5-0 loss to Sunderland on Tuesday evening, we do not believe that they are capable of matching the promotion-chasing side at their Prenton Park. You should bear in mind that Doncaster Rovers emerged triumphant in each of their previous four meetings with Tranmere Rovers in all competitions.
