Rotherham to Win

Four of the last five duels between Doncaster and Rotherham have ended with a win for the home team, but Rotherham was the host in three of those four matches. So, Rotherham has a much better head-to-head record in the most recent duels, including a match played in League One a week ago. All of this, plus the poor form in which Doncaster currently is, makes us think that Rotherham should win this match.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last five games played by Doncaster in all competitions have gone under 2.5 total goals, while the same is true for four of the last five Rotherham matches. However, three of the previous five h2h duels between these teams have gone over 2.5 total goals and the other two ended with two goals each. With that in mind, our prediction is for this match to go over 2.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

The situation with this bet is similar to our previous prediction – we have seen both teams score in just one of the last five Rotherham games across the board and in none of the last five Doncaster matches. But, four of the last five meetings between these two clubs have ended with both teams scoring, and we expect to see the same in this game as well.

Doncaster vs Rotherham preview: Can Doncaster get out of the slump?

Neither of these two teams is in great form, but the home team is doing worse at the moment. So, let's take a closer look at the teams ahead of their duel in the EFL Trophy:

Doncaster

One win and four losses in the first five rounds of League One have put Doncaster in the last place in the standings. In addition to this, the team has been eliminated from the EFL Cup in the second round after losing to Stoke. With the exclusion of their first-round win in the EFL Cup that came after penalties, Doncaster is still waiting for their first win of the season and the team is probably hoping to get it as soon as possible.

Rotherham

In the last five matches in all competitions, Rotherham has two wins and three losses, which includes a first-round loss to Accrington at home in the EFL Cup. However, the team has three wins and two losses in League One, which is enough to put them in the top-half of the standings for now. So, a win in the first round of the EFL Trophy against Doncaster would further boost the team's confidence.
