Crawley Town-Doncaster Rovers Betting Preview: Rovers set to top League One table

Brian Flynn's side can go top of the table with a victory over Richie Barker's men and Willie Duncan is backing the visitors to claim all three points at Broadfield Stadium
Title-chasing Doncaster Rovers have the chance to move to the top of League One if they can claim three points when they visit Broadfield Stadium to take on Crawley Town on Monday night.

Rovers are without a win in their last three matches but still lie just one point adrift of league leaders Bournemouth and Brian Flynn's side are chalked up at 7/4 (2.75) with William Hill to bag the victory that they require to move to the League One summit when they face Richie Barker's side.

Crawley have won just one of their last six matches in all competitions but they can be backed at 13/8 (2.63) with William Hill to bounce back with a victory here while the same firm offer 21/10 (3.10) that the match ends in stalemate.

Doncaster boast the most impressive away record in League One, having garnered 33 points from just 15 matches on the road so far this term and will fancy their chances against a Crawley side that have enjoyed just six victories in 14 home matches thus far.

It is worth noting, though, that only Leyton Orient have scored fewer goals than Rovers in the league’s top 10 so far this season and that fact, aligned with the impressive statistic that Doncaster have only conceded 11 away goals this term, points to a low-scoring tussle on Monday night.

William Hill’s 8/11 (1.73) quote for fewer than three goals to be scored is, therefore, tempting here, while the even money (2.0) quote from the same firm for Doncaster Rovers in the draw no bet market is sure to appeal to cautious punters.

With that in mind, it is the visitors who are the value play and Brian Flynn’s men should be snapped up at a juicy 7/4 (2.75) with William Hill to move to the top of League One with a victory.

Those who are looking to squeeze extra value out of this contest should back William Hill’s generous 9/2 (5.50) that Rovers emerge victorious from a match containing fewer than three goals.
