      • No League 1 team has conceded fewest shots on target than Doncaster away from home this season.

      Rovers struggling

      Last time out, a match against fellow strugglers did indeed represent an opportunity to do better, but things went from bad to worse for Rovers as they came unstuck in Bolton, losing by two goals to nil. Micky Mellon’s men have now lost each of their last three league games, while they’ve emerged victorious from none of their last seven.

      Defending hasn’t exactly been a speciality of Tranmere in recent times; they’ve kept one clean sheet in their last seven, but where they’re really struggling at present is up top. Mellon’s side have scored in none of their last two, while they’ve scored just once in their last 360 minutes of League 1 football. Rovers have scored in five of their last six at home, though they’ve not scored more than once during that time. A lack of goals is essentially why they’ve lost each of their last three at Prenton Park. If they cannot improve offensively, then they’re highly likely to struggle against a Donny side that is tough to get on the road.

      Consistency key for Donny

      Over the last few months, Doncaster have gone someway to shedding the tab of also rans, but they’ve not quite established themselves as serious top-six contenders, as they’re six points shy of the play-off places.

      Not an easy side to get the better of, Darren Moore’s men have struggled to be consistent, winning multiple games on the bounce just once since August.

      Fortunately, this match provides Donny with the chance to bounce back after they were narrowly beaten by Fleetwood last time out. Recent efforts against strong sides such as Coventry and Sunderland point towards Donny doing well against hosts who’ve struggled offensively of late.

      Visitors to edge it

      Tranmere don’t always get battered at home, but they’re up against a tough side here, and their recent struggles in the final third are hard to ignore. In the betting, ‘Doncaster to Win & Under 3.5 Goals’ stands out as a viable option. Tranmere haven’t scored more than once at home since September, which isn’t positive ahead of a match against the side that has conceded the fewest away goals and the fewest shots on target in the division. Donny, who’ve kept a clean sheet in three of their last four on the road, appear to be sturdy enough to get the job done, though we shouldn’t expect them to run riot. After all, the visitors have only scored more than twice in two out of 11 on the road this term, while less than four goals have been scored in nine of Tranmere’s last ten at home.
