Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Newport County and Doncaster Rovers face each other at Rodney Parade in the League Two round 21. The Exiles aim to build on back-to-back wins over Gillingham and Crewe, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the visit of Doncaster. Fit-again Republic of the Congo international Offrande Zanzala is pushing for a start after scoring the winner against the Railwaymen.
The Donny, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Colchester and Walsall, and seeing that they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on over 2.5 goals. As for the visiting team, there are no fresh injury worries, but talented midfielder Kyle Hurst could sneak into the starting line-up. A man to watch in the away team will be George Miller, who has netted nine goals in the League Two so far this season.
Highlighted Player (James Clark ):
Born in Berlin, Germany, James Clark is an experienced defender who plays for Walsall in the League Two. After spending his youth career at Watford, Clark played for the likes of Oxford United, Oxford City, Salisbury City, Woking, and Bristol Rovers before joining Walsall on a two-year deal.
The defender, who wears the No. 5 jersey at Walsall, has a contract with the Saddlers which should expire in June 2021. His primary position is centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right. James Clark made his League Two debut with Walsall on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 win over Northampton Town.
He scored his first goal for the Saddlers in the Northampton Town clash as well, helping the team pick up all three points from the PTS Academy Stadium clash. Clark scored his first professional goal during his spell with Bristol Rovers. He found the net in a 2-1 win over Wycombe at the start of the 2018/19 season.
