Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a 1-1 draw with Crewe Alexandra, Doncaster Rovers will be aiming to put an end to their four-match winless run when they face Stevenage in the League Two round 16. The Donny duo Woltman – Hurst is pushing for a start, with both Molyneux and Close likely to drop to the bench. A man to watch in the home team will be George Miller, who both scored and missed a penalty against Crew.
The Boro, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Northampton. Stevenage have recorded three wins on the road so far this term, and given Doncaster’s anything but brilliant form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. In their last meeting in the League Two Doncaster defeated Stevenage, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
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 (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
