All of the League One action takes place on Friday and the leaders Doncaster can't be ignored at almost 2/1 to pile more misery onto crisis-club Coventry.

Rovers are sitting pretty for an immediate return to the Championship with a five point lead at the top of the table having lost just one of their last nine matches.

They've also won a whopping 13 games on the road already with Brian Flynn doing a fine job since replacing Saunders in the KeepMoat Stadium hot-seat in January.

The Sky Blues, who are in all sorts of strife behind the scenes, have also lost eight times at the Ricoh Arena and that makes Rovers one of the best bets of the weekend.

Elsewhere I'd invest in another of the high-flyers on the road as Bournemouth head to struggling Colchester.

After a horrible wobble that saw them lose five on the spin recently the Cherries have responded with three successive wins to go back into third position.

Along with Rovers they remain my tip for automatic promotion and with 13-goal Brett Pitman back in top form they should see off the U's.
