THE bookies are not backing Doncaster Rovers to bounce back from their midweek woes at the first attempt, writes Sam Brandon.

Following their 3-0 defeat at the hands of the MK Dons, this weekend sees Doncaster travel down to the south coast where they’ll take on a Bournemouth side looking for a promotion spot themselves.

Brian Flynn’s men will look to stay in contention for an automatic promotion place with a victory and leading odds comparison site can reveal that Doncaster are best priced at 31/10 with Bet Victor for the away win, which seems like a good price seeing as Bournemouth have lost four on the bounce.

A Bournemouth win is available at 11/10 with Paddy Power whilst the draw is best priced at 12/5 with Bet victor.

The last time Rovers travelled to Bournemouth, they won 2-0 and a repeat of that score line is available at 25/1 with Bet Victor.

Interestingly, four of the last five games between the two have resulted in -2.5 goals. Punters may look to back this option which is best priced at 9/10 with Bet Victor.

Bournemouth have kept just two clean sheets in their last 13 games, whilst Rovers have scored in four of their last 5. Both teams to score is available at 4/5 with Bet Victor.

Rovers are still at the summit of League One despite their loss in mid-week to MK Dons. They are still best priced 11/8 with Bet Victor to gain automatic promotion and available at 6/1 to win League One with the same Betfred.

Rovers are also priced up at 10/11 to make the play offs come the end of the season.
