Doncaster v Yeovil - Saturday 15:00
Izale McLeod goes straight into the Yeovil squad following his midweek move from Notts County, adding another dimension to a team that’s become a tough nut to crack under Darren Way. The Glovers have kept ten clean sheets in their last 21 matches, remarkable for a team who began 2016 propping up the entire Football League.
The 31-year-old striker, now at his 13th different club, is considered high maintenance by many but he scored 19 goals at League One level two seasons ago and he’s a cut above what Yeovil would ordinarily expect to have up top. If Way can ignite the fire in his belly and play to his strengths, then the Glovers could make a mockery of the 9/2 available on the away win.
Doncaster are currently second in the fledgling shot ratio table and that probably explains why the market is so keen on them but four games is hardly a reliable sample, certainly not compared to the three years that Darren Ferguson has been underachieving. The former Peterborough boss lost 51 of his last 104 matches dating back to October 2013.
Donny might have the second biggest budget in the basement but successive 1-0 away wins over Cambridge and Cheltenham aren’t enough to convince that Ferguson has turned a major corner. If the visitors bag the first goal, they are more than disciplined enough to frustrate from thereon and odds of 17/2 about Yeovil to win to nil should also be chanced.
