Doncaster Rovers form and stats

The story so far for the visiting team on their League One travels is 6 wins, 1 draw and 5 defeats. The travelling fans think it's time that their travel expenses are covered with some points now, as Doncaster have lost on their last two travels.

There were no winners in Doncaster's previous match, a League One home game that ended 3-3 vs Hull City (placed 3rd). The game before that, was lost at home, a 0-1 defeat against Accrington Stanley.

The match against Hull City looked like a defeat for Doncaster, but they did not accept the outcome and clawed their way back to 3-3. James Coppinger equalized in the 90th minute. A crazy, crazy match with lots of goals last time out for Doncaster, as mentioned above. 6 goals in that one, will this match be as much fun? The draw against Hull City came from a losing position. The Doncaster Rovers manager D. Moore brought on James Coppinger as a substitute and the player scored to make the scores level.

The schedule is very tough for Doncaster Rovers now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A League One game at Ipswich Town is waiting in only four days.

The travelling fans enjoy Doncaster's attacking play in away games, having scored 18 goals in 12 league matches away. As opposed to that, Doncaster have seen the ball go into their own net 17 times on the road.
