      Doncaster vs Coventry Predictions

      • Only two teams have registered more shots on target at home than Doncaster this term.
      • Coventry are League 1’s best team in terms of shots on target per 90 away from home.
      • Both Coventry and Doncaster rank in the top six when it comes to shots for in League 1.

      Donny moving forward

      Much like the side directly above them in the table, Doncaster have clicked into gear of late. Darren Moore’s men were five games without a win and were seemingly heading in the wrong direction, though they’ve since won four out of five. This has seen them move swiftly towards the coveted top six, which is not only where they finished last season but is where they want to be come May.

      Things haven’t always gone Doncaster’s way at Keepmoat this season, though what has been constant has been the attacking threat of Moore’s men, who’ve scored in each of their last nine home matches. In addition to scoring 21 goals at home this season, Donny have been strong in terms of shots on target. In that area, they rank as the third-best team in the division.

      Sky Blues tough to face

      While Doncaster have improved of late, Coventry have been useful from pretty much the word go. They did fail to beat MK Dons in the week, but we shouldn’t read too much into that result. After all, they had won three on the bounce prior to that.

      Given their league position, it is somewhat strange that wins have been few and far between for Coventry on the road, though they’ve been very good at avoiding defeat, losing just two of their 11 travelling matches. They’ve also been particularly good at scoring away goals of late, notching eight in their last two, as well as 12 in their last five. Unfortunately, they’re without a clean sheet during that time.

      High-scoring fixture incoming

      In the betting, ‘Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score’ stands out as a viable option. It’s been a while since either team failed to score in the league, nearly two months to be exact, while both have posted encouraging attacking figures in their respective home and away games. Doncaster have scored an average of 1.5 at home, while they also rank as the third-best team in terms of shots on target at home, averaging a pleasing 5.07. When it comes to shots for, they’re League 1’s best home team, averaging 15.14. On the road, Coventry average 1.64 goals for, as well as 5.45 shots for, which makes them the best team in the league in that respect. Throw in that both teams have scored in 64% of Donny’s game at Keepmoat, as well as in each of Coventry’s last five on the road, four of which have seen three or more goals go in, and supporting a high-scoring games becomes the way to go.
