Today's Best Bet: Tuesday, August 20


Leigh Copson: Back Doncaster Rovers to beat Bolton Wanderers 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 @ 7/5 Paddy Power

They left it late, but Doncaster Rovers recorded their first league win of the season last weekend, ending Fleetwood Town’s perfect start in the process. Rovers fell behind and squandered a one-goal lead as they appeared poised to settle for a 2-2 draw, but Wes Burns put past his own goalkeeper in the closing moments to hand the South Yorkshire club all three points and they will now look to build on that victory with their first midweek League One fixture of the campaign.

And could there be a better fixture to have right now than a meeting with troubled Bolton Wanderers? These are desperate times at the Reebok Stadium, with the cash-strapped Trotters being forced to rely on youngsters to fill out a squad that only has a handful of senior players still on the books and willing to play.

Having fallen to defeat at Wycombe Wanderers on opening weekend, Bolton showed some signs of life a week later as they earned a goalless draw at home to Coventry City, but to say it has been all downhill from there would be an understatement. A 5-2 thrashing at Rochdale was followed up by a humiliating 5-0 defeat at Tranmere Rovers at the weekend, and it is hard to see how boss Phil Parkinson can turn things around as he continues to deal with the shambolic situation that is threatening to destroy the club.

I definitely do not see him leading his team to a point or three on Tuesday night. While Bolton’s only home game so far has provided a point, it is was hardly a result to inspire confidence, and despite Doncaster being made to wait for their first league win they are unbeaten in the third tier. That victory over Fleetwood came on the back of draws against Gillingham and Rochdale, and I expect them to make it four games without loss by beating Wanderers here. I do not expect them to run riot though. Rovers may have netted three goals at the weekend, but they have hardly been flush with goals in the first few weeks of the season and they were hardly flowing in pre-season either. Bolton are not exactly free-scoring themselves, so this is a great opportunity for Doncaster to finally notch their first clean sheet of the season and head back down the M62 with the spoils.
