Doncaster Rovers v Yeovil Town Preview, Championship, Friday 22nd November 2013

With Doncaster Rovers struggling with some serious injuries to their first team it has left manager Paul Dickov in critical need to reinforce his squad coming up to the Christmas months. With reports of him looking into possible loan signings to aid in his make shift defense it is pretty much dependent on the board after recently seeing chairman John Ryan resign. Mr Ryan aided in securing 11 summer signings for Paul Dickov and the manager is confident he will once again be given the funds to reinforce as the team are in dire need.

Although the results are not exactly going their way, Yeovil Town are slightly improving after securing promotion last year. With club captain Jamie McAllister believing his team mates have gained much needed experience being in the Championship with improving their passing game. With Yeovil Towns first season this high up in the English rankings they are showing a lot of spirit even with being bottom of the table. They have so far recording a shock win over Nottingham Forest and also draws with Bolton Wanderers and Brighton awarding them some much needed points.

Doncaster Rovers v Yeovil Town Team News

Doncaster Rovers Team News:

With constant injury problems hitting Doncaster Rovers we have now seen on loan defender Yun Suk-Young now sidelined for a possible six weeks due to his ankle caused during the clubs training sessions. With a makeshift back four Paul Dickov only has Liam Wakefield and little else to fill the defensive rolls.

Yeovil Town Team News:

Yeovil Towns goalkeeping worries are soon to be over with Marek Stech close to returning after a hand injury and Wayne Hennessey having returned to Wolves after his loan spell. It has come as great news to see Readings experienced goalkeeper Stuart Taylor signing on an initial one month loan and will make his start on Friday night.

Doncaster Rovers: D L L L W

Yeovil Town: L L W D L

With both clubs form pretty much the same in terms of wins, draws and loses it would only be Yeovil Town with the slight advantage given that their win only came a few weeks back. But due to them sitting at the bottom of the table you would imagine Doncaster who are only a few places above them look to take advantage here come Friday night.

Doncaster Rovers v Yeovil Town Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Some real juicy information above in regards to making any personal predictions with the main one being that Doncaster Rovers have not beaten Yeovil Town since back in 2004 when both clubs faced each other in League Two. Through the years these town sides have often been seen to get promoted together or if not then a season or two apart so it would suggest they are pretty much on equal terms in regards to skill etc.

Even with Yeovil Town sitting bottom of the Championship, it isn’t quite fair on how they are playing having beaten Nottingham Forest a couple of weeks back, much to the shock of both sets of fans. Yeovil Town have never been in a league this high and they certainly are struggling but could well be on the up if they manage to beat Doncaster on Friday night. Which I strongly believe they will which will reflect in my prediction of a 2 – 1 by Yeovil Town over the 90 minutes.

The other prediction is for Over 2.5 goals which I feel could be a money maker with most bookmakers coming in as EVENS.
