Doncaster vs Barnet Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview
Doncaster have the opportunity to cement their position as the second placed team in the league when they host Barnet here, who have struggled massively against quality sides so far this season. Below are our predictions, betting tips and preview.
Game: Doncaster Rovers vs Barnet
Venue: Keepmoat Stadium
Kick-off: Saturday 8th October, 3pm
Despite being able to match the runaway leaders Plymouth, Rovers are still having a fantastic season. They find themselves second in the League One table with a total of 20 points, which is a considerable amount better than their opponent here, Barnet, have managed.
The visitors are closer to the bottom of the table than the top but they've shown signs of promise. Barnet have drawn six games so far this season having struggled to turn those results in two wins, but they haven't been far off in some cases.
When Barnet have come up against teams of higher quality though, it has definitely been a different story. They were beaten 5-1 by Portsmouth just a couple of weeks ago, and Norwich U23 put five past them midweek. Add to that they were put of the LEague Cup by a Millwall side who racked up four, and you might worry for Barnet here.
Match Predictions and Betting Tips
Doncaster are best odds 8/13 with Sky Bet to record a probable home win here. The draw is available at 17/5 with Bet Victor whilst the visitors can be backed at 5/1 with Bet365.
Rovers have averaged two goals a game so far this season which isn’t a bad return. They're unbeaten through their five home games and have beaten Yeovil, Cambridge and Newport without too many problems. We also saw the attacking threat this side have when they put five past Morecambe.
It's the home side who must be in much more confident a mood at the moment having won away at Portsmouth last weekend. That was a particularly big result for Rovers who have been very hit and miss on their travels, much like Barnet.Back Doncaster Rovers-1AH at 40/41 with Bet Victor as our free betting tip.
There's plenty of evidence to say Doncaster could switch off at the back in this game, so even a route probably wouldn't bring a clean sheet. Barnet nay have taken some lessons from recent beatings but it should still be hard work.Doncaster to win 3-1 is available to back at odds of 12/1 with Bet Victor.
Andy Williams let us done against Luton so to speak, but did score against Portsmouth. That goal means that he now has six goals in 10 starts and given his history at this level, there’s reason why he can't maintain that ratio all season. Back Williams to score at odds of 11/10 with Paddy Power.
