Doncaster Rovers vs Sheffield United – History suggests away win

| 23.10.2010

Simon Gillett becomes the latest Doncaster Rovers player to visit the physio bench as Sean O’Driscoll’s side continue to slip further down the Championship table.

After Doncaster’s fine start to the season, just the single point separates the two sides in the Championship table, and Doncaster’s growing injury list means Gary Speed will be hopeful of registering just his second victory as the Sheffield United boss.

Match Odds

The two fixtures in which these two contested last season both ended in 1-1 draws and the same to happen on Saturday evening is available at 11/2.

Since Doncaster won promotion to the Championship in the 2007/08 season, the sides have met four times with the home team yet to pick up the three points.

Considering Doncaster’s injury troubles and their awful form, it’s hard to find any positives to back them at 13/8 to beat Sheffield Utd.

Gary Speed has been in charge of Sheffield United for just four games but already the club are showing signs of improvement, taking five points from those four games and they are 21/10 to win.

Under 2.5 Goals

The Sheffield United defence has held firm on their travels this season conceding only four goals, and with Doncaster scoring just three times in their last three games, it’s likely to be a tight game.

The goal line is set at under 2.0/2.5, (meaning a £10 stake would be split, with £5 placed on under 2 goals, and £5 placed on under 2.5 goals), and is priced at just under evens 49/50.

None of Sheffield United’s six away games have produced more than two goals and for the game to be level at half time with Sheffield United winning at full time is 7/1.

Doncaster are 7/1 to snatch a 1-0 win with the 1-1 draw available at 11/2. See the full Doncaster vs Sheffield United match betting odds market here.
