Tight game likely at Ewood Park
Two teams both looking to have an impact on the playoffs this season meet in the FA Cup this weekend as Blackburn Rovers host Doncaster Rovers.
Blackburn have lost a little ground in their race for the top six with just two wins in their last six games but they still only sit five points from the playoff spots with a tight race for promotion playing out in the Championship. The Lancashire side have fared well this season, scoring 38 times in 23 games and they’ll be keen to pick up some more form in this game.
Doncaster Rovers are currently fourth in League One with four wins in their last six putting them firmly in the playoff places. Things are just as right in the playoff race in League One though and just six points separate 3rd and 11th. Doncaster have found the net well this season, scoring 32 times in 18 matches as they chase a return to the Championship.
As such, we envisage a tight battle in this match with both sides showing some real attacking prowess. With that in mind, we’re backing the both teams to score market in this match with the attacking talent for both sides expected to shine as they vie for a place in the FA Cup Fourth Round.
Doncaster have been performing well and will hope to play Blackburn with more regularity in the Championship next season, something that looks entirely possible with their current form. We think this should be a really close match and are predicting a 1-1 scoreline between these two.
