Championship basement boys Doncaster entertain Watford this weekend in what promises to be a close-fought encounter.
Dean Saunders finds his boys struggling at the foot of the league and in danger of being cut adrift in the fight for survival should they suffer another defeat this weekend.
Donny have only picked up one win in their last seven league matches and are at football betting odds of 13/10 to pick up a much-needed victory here.
Games at the Keepmoat Stadium have averaged exactly two goals so far this season and you can get 13/5 for that trend to continue when the Hornets arrive in South Yorkshire.
Rovers’ home form has been poor recently, having lost two and drawn two in their last four games, and they have only managed to hit the net five times in front of their fans all season.
Watford boss Sean Dyche brings his side north having tasted defeat on his last four away days – in fact, they have only picked up maximum points once outside the comforts of Vicarage Road this campaign.

Furthermore, they have only scored twice on their travels. With three blanks in their last four matches on the road, backing them to fail to score again at 2/1 could be tempting.
Having said that, if you do expect Watford to find the net, factor in a Rovers goal too as both teams have scored in each of their past six meetings – a repeat here is priced at 18/25.
The Hornets currently sit seven points and five places above their hosts entering this fixture and are at 39/20 to grab what would be a priceless victory.
However, history suggests a draw, at odds of 9/4, is the likely result as four of the last six clashes have finished level and more notably, three of those six have finished 1-1.

By the same token, if you do expect Watford to find the net, factor in a Rovers goal too as both teams have scored in each of their past six meetings – a repeat here is priced at 18/25.
As a final thought, Watford have managed to take the lead in half of their away games, while Doncaster have only scored twice before the break at home all season.
So, assuming the result will be a draw, the run of play market could be a safer play than attempting to pick an exact scoreline – odds of 16/5 on the lead/draw selection are an appealing proposition.
