Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wigan Athletic will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Portsmouth when they take on Doncaster Rovers at the DW Stadium. The Latics regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to keep their League One playoffs alive. You should bear in mind that Wigan defender Tom Pearce misses the Doncaster game through injury.
The Donny, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Charlton Athletic and Bristol Rovers. Doncaster are likely to stick to their attacking style of play in the DW Stadium clash, and given Wigan’s display in the triumph over Portsmouth, punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. You should bear in mind that both teams found the net in each of Doncaster’s last three games in all competitions.
