Back the Donny-Darlo double
Spurred on by the profit made backing Millwall to win at Leeds yesterday, we’re staying loyal to the Football League and chasing long odds tonight – a £10 double on Doncaster beating Newcastle and Darlington getting the better of Aldershot provides a profit of £127 on Betfair. Not too shabby!
Why are we siding with the two outsiders? It’s not just because we think the phrase “Donny-Darlo double” has a nice ring to it, honest.
Doncaster are in fantastic form – unbeaten in six – and have already scalped Nottingham Forest and Cardiff at the Keepmoat Stadium, while Newcastle are unconvincing away and team spirit isn’t exactly likely to be at an all-time high after this morning’s tabloid revelations.
Darlington is admittedly more of a hunch, given their poor form, but they’ll be looking for a reaction after Steve Staunton’s exit and they face opponents who have lost six of their nine away games against teams below them.
