          Doncaster vs. Gillingham Prediction, Tips & Stats

          Two sides in very contrasting shapes meet in League Two this weekend as Doncaster Rovers face Gillingham.

          Doncaster Rovers currently sit 22nd in League Two with one win, two draws and five losses from their first eight games of the season.

          It's been a pretty disastrous campaign thus far for Doncaster who find themselves in and amongst the relegation candidates in the early portion of the season.

          Their league form overall is pretty poor having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five games, but that win did at least come in their most recent encounter where they won 2-1 away at Forest Green Rovers.

          Harrison Biggins gave Doncaster the lead on 35 minutes before Forest Green levelled the scores after 84 minutes.

          With the game looking certain to head for a draw, Ben Close popped up in the 86th minute to give his side an invaluable point.

          The win was a sorely-needed one for Donny who were, at the time, the only side in the league without a win.

          They will now desperately hope that win kicks them on towards an improved run of form because if they fail to progress then they'll likely spend the season deep in a relegation battle.

          Gillingham currently sit top of League Two with six wins and two losses from their first eight games of the season.

          It's been an impressive start to the season on the whole for Gillingham, who despite losing more games than any other side in the top five are top of the league standings.

          They're coming into this game amidst a strong run of form having won each of their last three consecutive matches in all competitions, with their most recent league game ending in a 2-1 win over Morecambe thanks to goals from George Lapslie and Connor Mahoney.

          While things are looking rosy for Gillingham in terms of the league standings, critics would argue that they've had a very kind start to the season in terms of fixtures, with only two of their eight games coming against sides currently above 15th place in the table.

          The good news is they did win their two toughest fixtures so they can clearly mix it with the sides up their in the standings, but they no doubt have tougher games to come this season.

          Having won three of their four away games in the league so far they should fancy themselves to take three points from a side that have been poor overall so far here.

          For our Doncaster vs. Gillingham prediction, we're going for a 1-0 win for the away side.

          Doncaster Team News

          Ben Close bagged an injury-time winner against Forest Green last time out so he'll be hoping to play from the first whistle here.

          Otherwise, Donny will likely stick with the same XI that started the win over Forest Green.

          Gillingham Team News

          George Lapslie is a major doubt for this game having been withdrawn with injury in the first half of the win over Morecambe last time out.

          Jayden Clarke will likely deputise for Lapslie in what will likely be the only change to the starting XI from that game.
