Form
Doncaster
Rovers have lost their last three games in a row; two of those were close 1-0 defeats when dominating play.
Last weekend Rovers were on the wrong end of a 4-1 defeat against Bristol City after a woeful defensive second half performance.
So far at home this season we have won one, drawn one and lost one.

Southampton have so far won one away from home at Derby County and lost the other two against Cardiff City and QPR.
Last time Southampton played they were humiliated 3-1 away from home against League Two Rotherham United in the Carling Cup.

With both clubs currently in the bottom five it`s an important game for both teams.
