League One leaders Doncaster could only manage a point at home to relegation-threatened Portsmouth but bookies expect them to fare a touch better this weekend and remain at the summit for now, Coral chalking them up at 7/5 to prevail in the derby clash at struggling Scunthorpe (11/5, Blue Square).
Bet365 post odds of 12/5 for it to be an inconclusive tussle at Glanford Park, where BetVictor make a 1-1 scoreline a 13/2 chance but Rovers are particularly strong on their travels having racked up more away victories than anyone else in the division and they’re 17/2 with Stan James to add a 13th to their tally by finishing on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline against an Iron side kicking off on the back of five defeats in six.
Back-to-back victories have turned things around for Bournemouth after a run of five consecutive losses and they’re easy to recommend at 8/15 (Skybet) to continue their revival by seeing off a doomed-looking Bury.
Meanwhile, Colchester have done their survival hopes the power of good by losing just one of their last six and they’re too big at 12/5 with BetVictor as they prepare to host an MK Dons side well adrift of the play-off scrap and with only two victories in a dozen attempts.
