Oldham vs Doncaster Predictions

It’s an interesting match up in the first round of the FA Cup, as it pits League One strugglers Oldham with League Two title challengers Doncaster and we think the extra confidence might just be enough to see Rovers take the win. In terms of odds the bookies can’t split them, both sides are priced at 13/8 for the win so we are going to add a bit of security to the bet and back Doncaster to qualify at 8/11 with bet365. For our correct score tip we think Rovers will do enough to avoid a replay and are backing a tight 2-1 away win at 9/1 with the same site.

Doncaster are flying high this season and even after a shaky last couple of weeks they are still sitting in an impressive third position in League Two. They have not struggled to score goals in the whole of the campaign so far and their average of two goals per game is enough to see them claim the crown of highest scorers in League Two so far. This impressive goal-scoring record is highlighted further when we consider that they are yet to fail to score in the league this season but the fact that they have won to nil in just 27% of their matches should give some indication of an area they will be desperate to improve.

Oldham know that if they are to progress in the cup then they are going to have to shut out their opponents as, with just nine goals scored in League One this campaign, they look unlikely to come out on top if they are to stand toe to toe with the visitors. The Latics will be desperate for a run in the cup to kick start their campaign as they are struggling in the league in 22nd position.
