Tip Reasoning

  • Doncaster have scored a staggeringly low 11 goals in 19 League One games.
  • The hosts have scored one goal in their last five league games, and are winless in six.
  • Oxford are unbeaten in seven league games, winning four and keeping three clean sheets.

Doncaster’s Attacking Woes make Survival Hopes Slim

Managerless Doncaster Rovers have netted just 11 goals in 19 League One matches, scoring once in their last five and failing to win in their last six. Their top scorer is Tommy Rowe, with three, who hasn’t scored in the league since September.

While their woeful attacking record leaves their survival hopes looking slim, Doncaster have also conceded 34 goals in their 19 games. As well as failing to score on 11 occasions this season, Rovers have only kept three league clean sheets of their own.

They shouldn’t hold out much hope, then, when in-form Oxford visit in midweek. The U’s have gone unbeaten in seven League One games, winning four and keeping three clean sheets. While Doncaster were losing at home to fourth-tier Mansfield in the FA Cup on Saturday, Oxford earned a decent league draw at Sunderland, and Karl Robinson’s team have League One’s third-meanest defence, shipping just 19 in 19.

Back an Away Shutout

With Doncaster still seeking a replacement for the sacked Richie Wellens, Oxford should claim a victory which could put them within two points of the top two.

Given the hosts’ awful attacking return, I’m backing the U’s to do it to nil. 2-0 to Oxford, therefore, seems a strong correct score prediction for this match.
