After losing by a score of 0-1, Doncaster Rovers will be looking to rebound from their League Two loss to Hartlepool United. Hartlepool United’s goal was scored by Daniel Dodds (88′). In recent times, Doncaster Rovers have only occasionally been able to avoid goals for the entire 90 minutes. The unsettling fact is that Doncaster Rovers have given up 13 goals in six of their last six games.
Of course, the pattern might not last in the next meeting. Doncaster Rovers are unbeaten in their previous two league games at home. Tranmere Rovers will be hoping to reverse their previous outcome in this matchup, which they lost to Stockport County in the League Two fixture.
Kane Hemmings (41′) and Kieron Morris (84′) scored for Tranmere Rovers. Stockport County got goals from Kyle Knoyle (19′), Kyle Wootton (45′), and Will Collar (78′). The facts do not lie: In five of their last six games, Tranmere Rovers have let in goals, allowing their opponents to score eight goals in total.
Tranmere Rovers have not been particularly solid defensively. Tranmere Rovers are without a victory in their last three league games against Doncaster Rovers when they have played them away from home.
We think the match between Doncaster Rovers and Tranmere Rovers could have few scoring opportunities, but there will be some. Let’s see how this plays out, but it seems like a draw could happen. After 90 minutes, we leave with a very close 1-1 result.
When we look back at their previous encounters, which began on March 1, 2008, we find that Doncaster Rovers have won five of those games, while Tranmere Rovers have only won one, with zero draws.
During this time, they scored a total of 14 goals, with Doncaster Rovers scoring 10 goals and Tranmere Rovers scoring 4. That amounts to an average of 2.33 goals scored per game. On League Two matchday 23, on December 26, 2022, Tranmere Rovers defeated Doncaster Rovers 3-0 in their previous league contest.
Due to injuries, Doncaster will probably be without Ollie Younger, Adam Long, and Jon Taylor. Tommy Rowe played as a substitute against Hartlepool after missing some time, and he might get a chance to play in the starting lineup on Tuesday.
James Brown and Caolan Lavery, both newcomers to Doncaster from January, are expected to keep their spots in the side after making their first appearances on Saturday. Regan Hendry joined the visitors on loan from Forest Green Rovers on the day of the deadline. He could start the midweek match after making his debut as a substitute over the weekend.
Jay Turner-Cooke signed with the club on the last day of January as well. The Newcastle United loanee was not in the team that lost to Stockport, but he could be on the bench on Tuesday. Harvey Saunders, a new signing in January, has played in the club’s first two games and will continue to play forward with Hemmings.
