So far at home this season Rovers have won one, drawn two and lost three.
Barnsley climbed out of the relegation zone on Saturday with a 0-0 draw at home against Bristol City.
So far this season on their travels Barnsley have drawn one and lost five.
Man to watch
Martin Woods Doncaster Rovers
Seems to have found the form he showed when at Rotherham, sooner or later one of his long range shots is going to fly into the top corner.
Jamal Campbell Ryce
Campbell Ryce seems to have found his form since his second half performance against Rovers earlier this month.
Ryce scored a sensational goal in the reverse fixture at Barnsley when Rovers failed to put in a meaningful tackle to stop him going almost full length of the pitch.
The clubs have met twenty nine times at Doncaster in the past with Doncaster winning thirteen to Barnsley`s six with ten being draws.
Barnsley`s last victory at Doncaster was back in the 1967/68 season.
