Doncaster vs Burton – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Burton have lost six of their last eight away matches ahead of their trip to play Doncaster in South Yorkshire on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Doncaster Double Chance

Doncaster are as good as down and even a victory over Burton this weekend will do little to aid their survival hopes. However, Rovers will be determined to give their supporters one last thing to cheer about in the final game of the campaign at the Eco-Power Stadium and Gary McSheffrey’s side have a chance to post a positive result against a Burton side that have lost six and drawn two of their last eight assignments. That dismal record suggests Rovers are under priced in the double chance market on Saturday.

Both Teams to Score

Doncaster cranked up the intensity in their last two games in an attempt to wrangle the points to trigger a great escape and though Rovers failed to get the results they wanted, it’s worth noting that both teams found the net on each occasion. We expect Doncaster to carry the same attitude into Saturday’s game and another open contest should ensue. With that considered, we recommend a stake on both teams to score in South Yorkshire.

Over 2.5 Goals

To their credit, Doncaster showed plenty of fight on Monday to claw their way back from three goals down to parity against Shrewsbury, though their display shone a light on their major defensive deficiencies. Those seemingly unpluggable gaps at the back should allow Burton to create chances on Saturday, though Rovers have enough running power at the opposite end to expose Albion, who are notoriously poor travellers. This has the makings of a high-scoring skirmish and the over 2.5 goals line appeals as a result.

Doncaster vs Burton Match Preview and Team News


Jon Taylor, Jordy Hiwula-Mayifuila, Ben Close, Fejiri Okenabirhie, captain Tom Anderson and Kieran Agard are all out for Doncaster, while Cameron John remains a doubt at the back. Rovers have just two games left to contest this term and with six points and a huge goal difference to overcome, they are as good as down.


Jonny Smith and Tom Hewlett are listed as Burton’s only injury concerns at present. Albion recorded a 2-0 win over an ailing Rotherham outfit on Tuesday evening to punt a dent in the Millers’ promotion hopes. Burton have an outside chance of landing a top half finish, but they need a lot to go their way before the end of the League One campaign.
