Match Preview: Doncaster Rovers

18 October 2019

All the lowdown you need on this weekend's away fixture against Doncaster Rovers...

Rovers are back on the road for the first time in almost a month, as Graham Coughlan's side prepare to visit the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Graham Coughlan's men picked up a second successive 1-0 win at the Mem last weekend to stretch an unbeaten streak that now stands at eight games in all competitions. 

On the road, Rovers have good form, picking up wins at both AFC Wimbledon and Lincoln City and will look to continue that run into this weekend's clash.

Saturday's hosts are without a win in four outings in all competitions and head into Saturday's fixture on the back of a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Oxford United last weekend. 

Coach's Preview: Rovers first-team coach Kevin Maher spoke to the press on Thursday morning and detailed the positivity in the camp heading into the weekend's fixture. 

Player's Preview: Alex Rodman was on press duty this week, as the winger spoke about adjusting to a slightly new position and how the squad can carry forward the momentum generated with two wins on the spin at the Mem.

Opposition: Darren Moore's side sits firmly in mid-table, picking up 16 points from their opening eleven games, however, they haven't won since they impressively dismantled dangerous-looking Peterborough side at home on the 21st September. Indeed, it seems like Moore's side have the Keepmoat Stadium a fortress so far this campaign, with all four of their wins this season coming at home.

Press Talk: Doncaster Rovers manager Darren Moore spoke to the press ahead of the game, saying, "They're (Bristol Rovers) one of the in-form teams at the moment so thus far so it presents another tough game for us you know, the games come thick and fast, they get tougher and harder than ever and Bristol Rovers is the next one for us."

Ticket News: Tickets will be available on the day from the academy reception at Keepmoat which is located next to the away turnstiles -  there will be no price increase on the day. For more details, visit the ticket story here.

Last Time We Met: Rovers' last trip to the Keepmoat wasn't a memorable one, as the hosts registered a 4-1 win over the Gas back in March.
