The Dons have a 75% win rate so far and then you see who we’re playing and where they are in the table and you know things aren’t always as they seem to be.
It’s Doncaster. Yep. Them. Two seasons ago, finishing third and missing out on automatics could squarely be blamed on not getting anything in two games against Donny.
Last League Game
The Dons regained that winning feeling and returned to the automatic spots. It was, though, far from convincing, though, but in the end, it all came good. Viva Chunky.
Donny are just one place better off than our last opponents, but they’ve played one game more. Donny were mauled at home by Notts County 3-1 with Donny’s consolation goal coming in added time with the game long decided.
Dons 2nd Doncaster 23rd
It’s fairly likely we’ll start with the Colchester line-up as MJ Williams is still side-lined with the injury sustained at Crawley. Graham Alexander saw a couple of his subs turn our fortunes around on Saturday. Hunter, with two assists and Dennis with the winner, a welcome relief for a manager wanting to add to his squad with no signs of any incoming players as yet.
This is another game where the Dons need to hit the ground running, and an early goal, which we’ve scored in all of our wins, would disrupt Donnys usual style when they play us. We’re due a performance from Leko. His poor show and petulant behaviour against Colchester leave him owing his boss a five-star performance sooner than later.
Options are limited. We aren’t expecting any changes, although there’s a glimmer of positivity as Dennis reminded us he’s still about.
MacGillivray, Norman, Tucker, O’Hora, Smith, Harvie, Devoy, Gilbey, Robson, Leko, Eisa.
