Doncaster Rovers, together with a host of other potential FA Cup giantkillers, have an opportunity to carve out a place in football’s history books this weekend by knocking out a team several divisions above them in football’s pyramid.
Rovers are a massive 4/1 (Ladbrokes) to overhaul Stoke City at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday. The visitors are quoted at 5/6 at Winner.com.
However, with just one defeat in their last eight outings, Doncaster will present the top flight outfit with the sternest of challenges and Paddy Power’s 11/10 against the opening half ending all-square is worthy of note.
Indeed, the stalemate (11/4, William Hill) will appeal to backers not expecting to see a full-strength Stoke City line-up, while bet365’s 13/2 posted against it finishing 1-1 will also attract punters anticipating some unexpected names on the teamsheet.
Romantics, meanwhile, may fancy a modest punt on a narrow home win, especially as Stan James offer 10/1 against Rovers recording a 1-0 victory.
