Doncaster Rovers go to in form Burnley on the back of their first victory in thirteen games this Saturday.
Burnley are in great form at the moment, they are currently in the promotion play off places and come into this game on the back of two very good away wins at Chelsea and QPR.
At home so far this season they have won five, drawn two and lost one.
Doncaster finally won their first game since August last time out against Ipswich Town at home. So far this season on their travels they have won one, drawn none and lost seven games.
Recent form (most recent game first, League only)
Michael Duff picked up an injury in midweek for Northern Ireland and will face a fitness test.
Steven Caldwell who is available again after suspension may miss out through injury.
Rovers have Gareth Roberts, Adam Lockwood and James Coppinger back fit after injury.
John Spicer will be hoping to be part of the team against his former employees having impressed in his last two games.
The two clubs haven`t met for almost seventeen years when they managed to meet a staggering five times before Christmas in the 1991/92 season.
Burnley won the last meeting 2-1 at Turf Moor and have the better record against tomorrow`s visitors winning seven, drawing three and losing three.
The last time Doncaster won at Burnley was in 1989/90 when a Mark Rankine goal gave Rovers a 1-0 victory.
