Doncaster v Wigan Predictions

Saturday afternoon sees an interesting contest at the Keepmoat Stadium as Doncaster Rovers look to get their ailing play-off push back on track when they host relegation battlers Wigan Athletic. Both sides come into this severely out of form and desperate to return to winning ways.

Doncaster occupied one of the top six spots between December and March but even though they're only five points off the play-offs with nine games left to play, it looks like it would take a minor miracle for them to move back up there, given their current trajectory. They have struggled for results since Andy Butler took charge last month, but in truth their form was faltering under his predecessor Darren Moore - it's now just two wins and nine defeats from Donny's last 14 outings, with two points taken from the last 12 on offer.

Things didn't improve over Easter Weekend, in which they lost 1-0 at home to top-half rivals Charlton Athletic before losing an early lead in a 2-1 defeat at severely out-of-form relegation battlers Bristol Rovers on Easter Monday.

Beleaguered Wigan, meanwhile, are winless in five after kicking off March with surprise back-to-back wins ver MK Dons (3-0) and Plymouth (2-0). The Latics have shown quality and fighting spirit in fits and starts this season, which is why they remain well in the relegation battle, only two points adrift of safety, but not often enough: it's just four wins in 19 outings since the turn of the year.

They've looked competitive in recent weeks, but ultimately it's been for little return: with a 0-0 draw at home to Ipswich followed by back-to-back narrow 1-0 defeats to Gillingham and Portsmouth - the telling stat from the game came from their ratio of shots (14) to shots on target (one); such profligacy in the final third is likely to be punished, and it's now three games without a goal.

Wigan have won their last three meetings with Doncaster via a 1-0 scoreline, although two of those came with a very different team back in their promotion-winning 2017-18 campaign.

DONCASTER TO WIN AND BTTS @ 9/2

Doncaster Team News

Given what's happened since, it must feel a very long time for Andy Butler since he started the job with back-to-back wins last month, and it will be interesting to see what approach he goes for against eminently beatable opposition as they look to return to winning ways.

40-year-old club legend James Coppinger opened the scoring at Bristol Rovers last time out and will likely remain in a supporting role in behind the striker here, with nine-goal top scorer Fejiri Okenabirhie set to remain one of the first names on the teamsheet on the left side of the attack and Omar Bogle leading the line.

FEJIRI OKENABIRHIE TO SCORE ANYTIME @ 2/1

Wigan Team News

Latics boss Leam Richardson may look to five-goal attacking midfielder Will Keane, who has made brief cameos off the bench in each of Wigan's last two games, as they go in search of ending their three-match goal drought here, with Jamie Proctor set to lead the line up top once more, with top scorer Callum Lang (seven goals) set to retain his place in a right-sided attacking role in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with midfield duo Funso Ojo and Lee Evans ahead of Curtis Tilt and George Johnston comprising a fairly robust defensive unit ahead of experienced goalkeeper Jamie Jones.

Scott Wootton and Tom Pearce both remain sidelined.
