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

Gillingham Double Chance

Saturday’s relegation six-pointer between Doncaster and Gillingham promises to be a keenly fought encounter, though we’re tipping the Gills to eventually leave the Eco-Power Stadium with something. No team has lost more games at home than second-from bottom Donny this term (ten), and having been toppled in seven of their last eight assignments on their own patch, Doncaster could be worth opposing again.

Under 2.5 Goals

With relegation fears abound and nerves certain to be jangling, margins could well be slim when Doncaster and Gillingham lock horns this weekend. Just a single goal was scored when the teams last faced off in October, while both attacks rank among the three least prolific in League One this season. With reliable goal-scorers in short supply, we recommend backing under 2.5 goals to hit the net in South Yorkshire.

Half Time Result: Draw

Saturday’s clash between two of League One’s bottom three clubs is expected to be fraught with nerves as both clubs try to avoid making the mistakes that could lead to defeat, and we anticipate a cagey first half at the Eco-Power Stadium. When Doncaster and Gillingham last met before Christmas, the game’s defining moment didn’t arrive until the 79th minute after the sides went in level at the break. With so much riding in the result, backing the teams to go in at level pegging at half time appeals again at the prices on offer.

Doncaster vs Gillingham Match Preview: Crucial fixture in basement battle


John Bostock, Ethan Galbraith, Charlie Seaman, John Taylor, Cameron John and Ben Close are among a lengthy list of injury absentees for Doncaster, while captain Tom Anderson – who missed the club’s 4-0 loss at Cheltenham last time out through illness – could be out again. Adam Clayton was sent off in the same game and will be absent through suspension as a result.


Danny Lloyd, Dan Adshead and Alex MacDonald could all be sidelined again this weekend for Gillingham. Neil Harris’s charges were beaten 3-0 at home by Bolton in their last test, though they had lost two of their last seven fixture before that. The Gills took four points from their last two away games, at relegation rivals Lincoln (2-0) and Morecambe (1-1).
