Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Doncaster will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Leyton Orient when they face Tranmere at their Eco Power Stadium. The Donny are eyeing their third consecutive win on home soil, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Both Jon Taylor and Joseph Olowu should miss out with injuries, while Tommy Rowe faces race against clock to be fit for Saturday’s clash.
The Super Whites, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the League Two, and seeing that they will go for a win as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Joel Mumbongo limped off with injury in a 1-1 draw with Walsall, with fellow forward Jake Burton likely to step up. Kane Hemmings should keep his place up front.
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 (Tranmere):
Based in Birkenhead, Merseyside, Tranmere Rovers are a professional club that compete in the League One. Tranmere were founded back in 1884 under the name of Belmont FC, with the football arms of cricket clubs Lyndhurst Wanderers and Belmont coming together. The club recorded their first win later in 1884 as they outclassed Brunswick Rovers 4-0.
Nowadays Tranmere Rovers play their home games at Prenton Park, the venue which can hold up to 15,567 people. The Rovers wear white shirts and blue shorts in home matches, but back in the 19th century orange and red were the dominating colours on their kit.
Tranmere fans see Bolton Wanderers as the club’s main rivals, but they have built a small rivalry with Chester City and Everton as well. The Prenton Park outfit did well to make it to the League Cup final in the 1993/1994 season, but Aston Villa proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
