A tight contest is predicted as Doncaster host Shrewsbury in an English League one clash at the Keepermoat Stadium. Neither team is particularly prolific in attack and Tuesday’s match is tipped to produce few goals.

Doncaster Form


Doncaster claimed a 1-0 home victory against Oxford United in their previous League One fixture. Reece James's first half effort proved to be the difference as they withstood wave after wave of attack to earn the win.

Despite the victory, Doncaster remain in the bottom half of the table having been on an inconsistent run of two wins and two defeats from their last five matches. Darren Moore’s men have struggled in attack and have failed to score more than one goal in eight of their last nine matches.
  

Doncaster News


Doncaster have no major injuries or suspensions and could stick with the same side that faced Oxford United. Niall Ennis is likely to continue as the lone man in attack despite scoring just one League One goal this season.

Shrewsbury Form


Shrewsbury were held to a 1-1 draw at Bristol City in an FA Cup clash on Saturday. Sean Goss struck a second half equaliser as they struggled to find their cutting edge in attack for much of the contest.

Sam Ricketts’ men are in the bottom half of the table, just one point behind Doncaster having drawn their last two matches, including a 1-1 draw at Bolton Wanderers last time out in League One. Like Doncaster, they have also found things difficult in attack and have failed to score more than one goal in each of their last four matches.

Shrewsbury News


Shrewsbury are without right back Ryan Sears, who is sidelined with a cruciate ligament injury. They have an otherwise fully fit squad for Tuesday’s match and should retain much of the team that started against Bristol City.

Doncaster vs Shrewsbury Head to Head


Doncaster have a 5-4 edge with three draws from 12 previous matches against Shrewsbury. There has been under 2.5 goals in the last two meetings with both teams drawing two of the last three fixtures.

Shrewsbury claimed a 2-0 victory at Montgomery Waters Meadow the last time they faced Doncaster with goals from Joshua Laurent and Tyrese Campbell.

Doncaster vs Shrewsbury Betting Odds


Doncaster are favourites at home at 2.00 while a win for Shrewsbury Town is priced at 3.75. A draw is valued at 3.40 which has been the outcome in two of the last three meetings. The last two fixtures have produced under 2.5 goals and a similar scoreline is offered at 1.75 at bet365.

Doncaster vs Shrewsbury Match Up


Doncaster have struggled in attack with Niall Ennis scoring just one goal this season. Fellow forward Kwame Thomas has found the net just once in his last 10 matches and should struggle against the Shrewsbury defence.

Shrewsbury also have similar problems going forward, striker Daniel Udoh scoring just once in his last 10 matches. They are likely to find things difficult against Doncaster on Tuesday.
