Doncaster Rovers v Bristol City Betting Tips - Rovers still pointless

Nicky Maynard has three goals so far this season

City will look to build on their impressive away win at Leicester with a win at winless and pointless Doncaster on Saturday.

Doncaster however have been made slight favourites with the bookies – they are a best price 6/4 with SportingBet. Roves however have still not scored since the opening day after Billy Sharp, who scored Rovers’ only goal this season, was stretchered off with a broken leg.

Rovers have failed to pick up a single point all season, and have lost both home games so far 1-0. The away side are 19/10 with bet365 to record their second win of the season.

Given Rovers’ lack of potency in front of goal, Bristol City to win to nil at 15/4 with bet365 could be one of the value bets of the weekend.

The Robins held Portsmouth to a 0-0 draw last Saturday for their first home points of the season – with Dean Gerken impressing in goal for the Reds, whilst Doncaster lost out 3-0 to 100% starters Derby.

In the last six meetings between the sides in Doncaster dating back to 2004, all six have contained less than 2.5 goals, which is 4/5 with Victor Chandler, which will attract many over/under bettors.

Nicky Maynard has been on the Leicester’s shortlist for some time, and the Bristol striker is 5/1 to score first with bet365. Chris Brown is Rovers’ biggest threat, especially from set pieces, and the big front-man is 7/1 to score first with Coral.

Last season’s meeting between the teams at the Keepmoat finished 1-1, which is 6/1 with William Hill.

Should the home side fail to win or even score again, boss Sean O’Driscoll may be forced to drop into the loan market with funds tight, to find someone capable of scoring the goals needed to keep his side up.

Recommendation: Bristol City win @ 19/10 with bet365
