Burton Albion form and stats

5-2-3 (win-draw-lost) are the League One numbers at home for Burton Albion so far this season.

Burton Albion's last game was hosting Accrington Stanley (placed 17th) and winning 4-0. As indicated by the result mentioned above, Burton played a great game against Accrington Stanley and beat them comfortably. Expectations are high for this one. Kane Hemmings, an attacker, was the top player for the team in that match, scoring a rating of 8.35 (out of 10). Hemmings signed up for two assists, hit four key passes and dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times.

Prior to that, an away loss at Milton Keynes Dons.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Burton have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found eight games) they have won one time, drawn four and lost three.

The Burton fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 16 goals in 10 league matches. 12 goals have been conceded.

Doncaster Rovers form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Doncaster Rovers so far with only 1 point returning home. The records show 0-1-9 (win-draw-lose). Travelling has not been lucrative for the away team as they have returned home without a win in ten away games in a row.

Doncaster are looking to quickly end their 225 minutes long goal drought in the League One.

Doncaster play their second straight away game, having lost the previous one 0-3 to Bolton Wanderers (placed 11th). Tom Anderson, who plays in defense, got the "man of the match" on his team with the rating 7.14. Anderson hit one key pass and won 6 of 6 duels.

Ahead of that game was the 0-0 draw at home against Lincoln City.

We have checked recent matches where Doncaster have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those eight games were three victories, zero draws and five defeats.

The visitors will be packing their bags again in only four days as another away game awaits: The EFL Trophy trip to Crewe Alexandra.

Doncaster are seemingly not capable of scoring regularly on their travels in the league. They have only managed 3 goals from 10 away games. Doncaster have conceded 24 goals in these games.

Head 2 Head

As for the last nine games between these two teams, there's two Burton victories, five draws and two Doncaster Rovers wins. Over/under statistics; six of these games ended with three goals or more, three matches with two goals or less.
