Crewe v Doncaster - Saturday 15:00
Darren Ferguson returns to the scene of his darkest hour with Doncaster, probably looking for revenge against a Crewe side that relegated him last April when they had nothing to play for. But the market appears to be over-reacting with 5/4 quotes about the away win. Rovers are dominating games at this level but they remain far from convincing in game-management terms.
Rovers were comfortable 4-1 winners against Yeovil last weekend but a goal inside 60 seconds was a massive leg-up and a red card for the Glovers when the game was delicately poised at 2-1 also gave them a helpful push towards the finishing line when the outcome should have been done and dusted long before. Therefore, don't shy away from 5/2 quotes about Crewe to win here.
The Railwaymen aren’t quite the value they were back when they ran out comfortable 3-1 winners in this fixture four months ago. They were over 4/1 that day but, under Steve Davies, they do tend to have a preference for playing the role of underdogs, especially at home, and they’ve already held title favourites Portsmouth to a goalless draw at Gresty Road.
If Crewe open the scoring, this could easily turn into a frustrating afternoon for the visitors, whereby it’s one-way traffic thereafter, only for the hosts to complete their smash-and-grab with a killer second on the counter. Take the 17/1 available on the Crewe 2-0 correct score.
