Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Doncaster will look to put an end to their three-game losing run in all competitions when they host Swindon to their Eco-Power Stadium on Matchday 6. The Donny were eliminated by Everton in the EFL Cup round 2, but their display in Wednesday’s clash was anything but poor. Midfielder Luke Molyneux should keep his place in the starting XI after scoring as a substitute in the last league match.
The visitors, on the other hand, rolled over Crawley Town 6-0 at the weekend to move closer to the playoffs berth. Swindon aim to give fans yet another reason to celebrate and given Doncaster’s poor form, we predict that the Robins are going to pick up all three points from the match. In their last meeting at Eco-Power Stadium Swindon defeated Doncaster 1-0.A man to watch in the away team will be Jake Young, who scored four goals and added one assist in the crushing of the Red Devils.
