Doncaster Rovers vs Everton

, KO: 20:00 Aug 30, 2023, Eco-Power Stadium

Doncaster Rovers welcome Everton to Eco-Power Stadium for a Carabao Cup second round clash on Wednesday. Both teams have endured a difficult start to the season but Everton will be relying on their superior topflight quality which should give them the edge over the League Two side.

Rovers were giant killers in the first round as they claimed a 2-1 victory at Hull City to secure a place in Wednesday’s clash. They bounced back from an early setback with a brace from George Miller earning them the win.

That result has been the only win for Doncaster Rovers, who have found things difficult at the start of the season. Grant McCann’s men have lost four of their five League Two matches this season and were beaten 2-1 by MK Dons in their previous fixture last Saturday.

Doncaster Rovers’ poor start to the season means they are yet to secure a win at Eco-Power Stadium having suffered two defeats in front of their fans so far. The results are an extension of their poor showing towards the backend of last season as they are now winless in their last seven home matches, suffering six defeats in that run.

Everton drew a bye from the first round of the Carabao Cup and are making their first appearance in the competition. Like Doncaster Rovers, they have endured a difficult start to the season and have lost their opening three Premier League matches.

The Toffees head into Wednesday’s clash off the back of a 1-0 home defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in a Premier League fixture last weekend. They looked to have settled for a draw before a lapse at the back allowed Wolves grab a late equaliser.

While the results have been poor there have been a few flashes of quality from Everton, particularly in the opening fixture against Fulham and the second half last weekend. Manager Sean Dyche will be keen to channel some of those flashes And possibly use Wednesday’s clash to jump start their season.

How the bookies view it

Everton have the upper hand among the bookies with a win priced at 2/5 with bet365. Doncaster Rovers are considered outsiders at home at 7/1 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at 15/4 by Unibet.

Head to head

This will be the first ever meeting between Doncaster Rovers and Everton.

Players to watch

With the exception of the 4-0 defeat to Aston Villa, Everton have shown flashes of defensive solidity, with their other losses stemming from momentary lapses of concentration. The duo of Michael Keane and James Tarkowski will be confident of shutting put Doncaster’s attack and keeping a clean sheet at 11/10 with BoyleSports.

At the other end of the pitch, Everton will be looking to Neal Maupay to find his scoring touch. The striker is priced at 7/4 by William Hill to get on the score sheet on Tuesday.

Anything else catch the eye?
