Doncaster Rovers sit sixth in the League One table following what has thus far been an excellent campaign, a 3-1 weekend win over Peterborough United extending their unbeaten run across all competitions to four games. Prior to this win over the Posh, Donny had lost their early-season consistency with just a single win in their previous four outings but they have avoided defeat in front of their home fans since October with two draws and six wins in their last eight matches at the Keepmoat Stadium. Boss Grant McCann will look to his side to continue in a similar fashion when Southend United come to town on Tuesday evening and with Donny banging in seventeen goals in their last six home games, we expect the hosts to give an excellent account of themselves this week.

Southend United have been struggling of late with just a single win in their last six competitive games. They have been banging in the goals recently but these have provided Christopher Powell’s men with relatively little in the way of return and as such, defeat in this week’s outing may well spell the end for the Seasiders as far as their promotion ambitions are concerned. Indeed six other sides are breathing down their necks as things stand and with a mere six points separating Southend from the relegation zone, things are starting to look slightly worrying for the Roots Hall side.
We’ll be siding firmly with Doncaster to capitalise on their opponents’ woes on Tuesday evening and collect the three points in front of their home fans, a straight home win coming off as the best approach to this match despite the prospect being that this could prove to be a thoroughly entertaining affair, BetVictor Bookmakers going 7/10 on Doncaster Rovers to win.
