Doncaster entertain Burnley on Sunday hoping to build on their tremendous victory at Nottingham Forest on Boxing Day.
Rovers beat Nottingham Forest 4-2 away from home on Boxing Day and are now only one point from safety.
The last time they played at home they were unlucky to lose 1-0 against top of the table Wolverhampton Wanderers who scored the winner in the last ten minutes.

The Clarets surprisingly lost 2-1 at home on Boxing Day at home against Barnsley.
The last time they played away they won 2-1 at Bristol City.

Rovers are expected to be unchanged from the side that performed so well at Forest.
Adam Lockwood and James Coppinger will both be hoping to push for recalls after only being substitutes at Forest after recent injuries.
Burnley will probably also be unchanged from Friday`s defeat. Christian Kalvenes is still injured and they will be hoping that Wade Elliott and Kevin McDonald who both passed late fitness tests on Friday will have suffered no ill effects from that game.
The two clubs met just over a month ago, Rovers controlled for long periods of the game after Steve Thompson was sent off for the home side in the first half, they couldn`t get past an inform Jensen in the Burnley goal and the game finished 0-0.
There have been fourteen previous encounters at Doncaster with both sides winning seven each, there has yet to be a draw when the two clubs met at Belle Vue.
