Doncaster Rovers v Bradford City (1945 GMT, Sky Sports Football)

Sky Bet League One takes centre stage on Monday night as Doncaster Rovers host Bradford City at the Keepmoat Stadium.

It's a meeting between two of the division's out-of-form sides as Simon Grayson desperately tries to turn around Bradford's fortune with a play-off place still within touching distance.

With the Bantams six points off the top six, Doncaster find themselves five points clear of the relegation zone. Darren Ferguson's men have four teams in between them and the drop.

It's a huge Yorkshire derby for various reasons and both sides will be eager to secure the victory.

Whilst Bradford have been in horrendous form during 2018, a managerial change has come at what could be a crucial time if they are to salvage anything from this season.

Grayson has had less than a handful of games in charge of his side, who were narrowly beaten by Wigan at Valley Parade in midweek.

The West Yorkshire side have struggled for points away from home, but more of a concern is Doncaster's home form that sees them pick up just one win in their last five in front of their home fans.

Despite a poor recent away record, you'd be more inclined to back Bradford away from home more than you would at home during the first half of the season and they sit in 5th in the away standings in League One.

Rovers sit 13th in the home standings, a concern being that they've won just six of their 17 games in South Yorkshire.

The visitors can be found as big as 9/4 to pick up the three points, with Doncaster the favourites at 13/10.

Bradford seem good value despite recent form. Grayson will have had time to work with his new side and their fortunes have to turn now if they are to sneak into the top six at the end of the season.

The Bantams may be without Charlie Wyke who still has two games left on his suspension, but they will be looking to Shay McCartan, Dom Poleon and Paul Taylor to provide the goals with the aim of staking a claim for the starting shirt when Wyke returns.

Whilst form hasn't been on either side for these teams, City possess the quality to pick up three points.

Score prediction: Doncaster 1-2 Bradford (Sky Bet's odds: 9/1)

Best bet: Bradford to win at 9/4

Alternative bet: Over 2.5 goals at evens
