Doncaster Rovers vs Barnsley Betting Preview – 15/03/2019

Doncaster Rovers vs Barnsley

One League One fixture you will not want to miss this Friday takes place at the Keepmoat Stadium, where Doncaster Rovers and Barnsley will go head-to-head. The two sides are having successful seasons and both find themselves up in the top six. The hosts sit in sixth place with 56 points and their opponents hold a huge-18 point lead over them as they sit up in second. Both outfits head into this fixture looking to shake off draws in their previous games. These two sides could not be separated when they first met at Oakwell, with the final result ending 1-1.

Doncaster Rovers will be aiming to secure at least a point from this upcoming fixture, but three points would do them the world of good with Peterborough, in seventh, hot on their tails. Rovers have had a fairly successful season but they are in need of a morale booster with them in a poor run of form. Following their recent 1-1 draw with Blackpool, Doncaster have now gone six games without a win and have suffered three defeats during those fixtures. The last meeting between these sides ended in a 1-1 draw and SkyBet has a repeat result to happen priced at 5/1, but if you fancy the host’s chances of winning then they have odds of 9/5.

Rovers enter this game looking to bring an end to their winless run of two games whilst playing at home, but with Barnsley unbeaten, in their last twelve games, they will have a tough fixture on their hands. Three of Rovers last five games have ended in draws and you can back them to draw another with Bet365 at a price of 5/2. All of the hosts last five games have had under 2.5 goals scored and Bet365 is offering a price of 17/20. John Marquis has bagged 21 goals this season and is most likely to score for Rovers this Friday. Betway has the forward to score priced at 13/8.

Barnsley will be aiming for nothing less than three points from this upcoming fixture, as they look to make a final push for a title spot finish. The Tykes head into matchday 38 just five points off the pace of Luton Town who sit in first place. Daniel Stendel’s men could do with three points with them drawing three of their last five games. Their most recent fixture saw them draw 0-0 with Sunderland. SkyBet has the travelling side to win priced at 7/5.

Barnsley have been defensively strong this season and head into this upcoming fixture with the best defensive record in the league, with just 28 goals conceded. The Tykes have managed to keep clean sheets in all of their last five matches and can be backed to keep another with SkyBet at a price of 9/4.
