Prediction: Stoke City vs Doncaster Rovers – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

City of Stoke will try to extend their unbeaten start of the season to six games if they host Doncaster Rovers by doing EFL Cup second round.

At a time when the Potters are flying high in the championship, Doncaster is still waiting for their first first division win.


Prediction for this match

After a weak second half last season, Stoke boss Michael O’Neill would have been satisfied with a solid and unspectacular start to the new campaign.

However, the former Northern Ireland coach has achieved results that have exceeded expectations as his players recorded four wins and one draw from five games.

The Potters had to work hard to beat Nottingham Forest over the weekend but it was a win that kept the club keeping pace with West Bromwich Albion and Fulham.

With the latter of these teams coming over the weekend, O’Neill will inevitably put the players on hold for this competition, but it won’t change his desire to get as far as possible in the competition.

At a time when some of the older players are currently indispensable in the first team, this game is an opportunity for multiple squad members to remind their manager of their skills.

Swindon Town Manager Richie Wellens in November 2019

Doncaster has ambitions to return to the second division in 2022-23 and build on last season’s disappointing 14th place.

However, what it looks like is Richie Wellens focused only on winning and scoring after a hopelessly poor start to four League One games.

While the Rovers took a respectable share of the booty in Portsmouth on Saturday afternoon, they have now played four games in all competitions without finding the net.

Doncaster only reached this round of competition by defeating Walsall on penalties and remarkably beating a 3-1 deficit on penalties at Banks’s Stadium.

West Bromwich Albions Romaine Sawyers in action with Fulhams Denis Odoi on July 14, 2020

Romaine Sawyers is about to make his first start for Stoke after being loaned out by West Brom.

O’Neill could realistically pick 11 different players for the weekend and bring in teenagers Adam Porter and Christian Norton.

Alfie Doughty may get another chance while on the left full-back Chop up will try to impress before a possible exit.

Doncaster can’t call Anthony Greaves after being released in the final round.

Wellens doesn’t make as many changes as his counterpart, but people like Matthew Smith, Dan Gardner and Branden Horton are all fighting for the starting roles.

Stoke City possible starting line-up:
Davies; Chester, Bath, Fox; Ince, Porter, Thompson, Sawyers, Doughty; Surridge, Norton

Doncaster Rovers possible starting grid:
Jones; Knoyle, Blythe, R. Williams, Horton; Smith, Close, E. Williams; Barlow, Cukur, Gardner

Probability: Stoke City 3-1 Doncaster Rovers

Regardless of two heavily changed lineups likely to be seen at the bet365 stadium, the end result should stay the same. There is confidence and competition for places in this Stoke squad which means that we predict a relatively comfortable win for the home side.
