FREE Press Prediction League pundit Daniel Powell expects more misery for his beloved Rovers this week with two tough away games approaching.

“For the first half of the season the Keepmoat was a fortress and you could bank on Rovers picking up points,” Powell writes.

“Now teams are fancying their chances and getting their rewards.

“We should be playing our own game - not worrying about what the opposition is going to do.

“Playing one up front away is almost a certainty these days, but at home it is being too negative.

“You could sense a bit of spice in the air after what happened at Fratton Park in November and they knew how to work the referee, which is something we need to learn.

“You couldn’t pick two harder away games than those we have next. Swansea and Norwich are both in red hot form and still have an eye on automatic promotion.

“We need to be at our best but, on current form, it doesn’t look good.”

Powell’s predictions:

Swansea 2 Rovers 0

Norwich 3 Rovers 1
