Preview: Doncaster Rovers

15 September 2014

A look ahead to Tuesday's action at the Keepmoat Stadium

Reds make their second ever visit to the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday when we play Doncaster Rovers in League One, kick off 7.45pm.


MATCH OFFICIALS

Referee: Eddie Ilderton

Assistants: Tom Bramall and Nick Greenhalgh

Fourth Official: Nick Gibbons


TEAM NEWS

Josh Simpson (ankle) is sidelined for Reds, although he is close to a return. Lanre Oyebanjo and Gwion Edwards should be fit after missing the 1-0 win over Fleetwood.

Harry Forrester is suspended for Doncaster after he was sent off on Saturday while defender Rob Jones (hamstring) is a doubt.


VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "It's as tough as it comes in this division. Doncaster have got a good squad and I expect them to be near the top at the end of the season. But we're full of confidence after Saturday and it is certainly a ground we should enjoy visiting."


Paul Dickov (Doncaster boss, pictured): "We have two home games in a row that we should be looking to win. We need to get back to how we were at the start of the season which means being hard to beat and getting more crosses in the box and shots on target."

 

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

This is the third meeting between the clubs. In 2012-13, a goal from Nicky Ajose sealed a 1-0 win for Reds at the Keepmoat. The return game in February 2013 finished 1-1 with Josh Simpson on target for Crawley.
