Doncaster v Rotherham - Saturday 12:30, Sky Sports
Doncaster managed only two wins in their first 11 games but have now won three of their last five, the latest of which was a 1-0 victory at Bury. Rotherham, on the other hand, have picked up just one point from their last three, losing to bottom-five sides Wimbledon and Gillingham. As a result they’ve dropped down to 7th, and have in fact lost five of their eight road games this term as they struggled on their travels even when they were in much better form. Doncaster look a fair price at around 2.5, particularly as they’ve won two of their last three at Keepmoat Stadium. Indeed, they should have plenty of joy against a Rotherham defence that’s shipped nine in their last three and conceded at least twice in five of their eight away matches.
Gillingham v Bury - Saturday 15:00
Gillingham continued their impressive form with a 3-1 win at Rotherham, meaning they’ve now picked up seven points from their last four, including a draw against the odds-on favourites for the title, Wigan. However, they’ve won just once at home all season and were beaten by struggling Northampton in their last game at Priestfield Stadium, so we’re wary of backing them at a short price. Bury have lost each of their last four, but they generally keep things pretty tight as these were all by just a single goal, while they haven’t conceded more than twice in any of their last four on the road. Gillingham themselves have netted just three times in their last five at home, with four of these games seeing fewer than three goals and three featuring one goal or less.
AFC Wimbledon v Peterborough - Sunday 14:30, Sky Sports
Peterborough won for the first time in six as they beat league leaders Shrewsbury at the ABAX Stadium. Their away form’s been solid all season as they’ve lost just twice on their travels (W2-D3-L2) and so we’re backing them to build on that win over The Shrews. Wimbledon have lost their last two, including against bottom of the league Plymouth in their last outing at Kingsmeadow and so they look far too short here. They’ve now failed to score in three of their last four at home and have won just once in their last six on their patch, despite five of these being against bottom-half opposition. So we’re siding with Peterborough Draw No Bet.
