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

Doncaster to Win

Already a whopping 13 points from safety, bottom club Crewe already look doomed, but even though Doncaster are just one place above Alexandra in the table, Rovers’ meatier survival hopes could give them the impetus to push for victory against their relegation rivals. Crewe have lost 15 of their 20 away assignments this term, while five of Doncaster’s eight victories have been secured at the Eco-Power Stadium. The points are much more valuable to the hosts on Saturday, so back Donny to prevail.

Under 2.5 Goals

Unsurprisingly, bottom two Doncaster and Crewe, also rank among the three lowest scoring teams in League One this season. Rovers have plundered just two goals in their last six runouts while Crewe have notched just three times in their last half a dozen fixtures. It’s safe to say that fireworks are unlikely this weekend then, so back under 2.5 goals to be registered in South Yorkshire.

Half Time Result: Draw

Tension is expected to be high in Saturday’s potentially crucial relegation tussle in Doncaster and with players on both sides determined to avoid making costly mistakes, a tepid first half could develop. 50% of Rovers’ home matches this season have been level at the break and the factors suggest that bettors might find joy with a stake on a draw in the half time markets again on Saturday.

Doncaster vs Crewe Match Preview and Team News


Jon Taylor, Ben Close, Fejiri Okenabirhie, Tom Anderson and Kieran Agard are all out for Doncaster this weekend. Rovers weren’t involved in midweek action and with extra rest to take advantage of, manager Gary McSheffrey will hope that his players can play with some extra bite against Crewe.


Crewe have an injury crisis on their hands with Scott Robertson, Ryan Alebiosu, Ben Knight, Billy Sass-Davies, Tariq Uwakwe, Mikael Mandron and Rio Adebisis all potentially absent this weekend. Alexandra were beaten 2-1 at MK Dons on Tuesday evening, which was their seventh loss on the spin in League One.
