Doncaster entertain Bristol City at the Keepmoat on Saturday hoping to carry on with their good form that gave them back to back victories over Christmas.
Rovers gained maximum points over Christmas and finally found their shooting boots with six goals in two games; firstly they won the relegation six pointer at Nottingham Forest 4-2 before beating promotion chasing Burnley 2-1 at home.
Last Saturday`s FA Cup clash at Cheltenham was called off because of a frozen pitch.
Recent home form (last game first) WLWDWD
Bristol gained a very respectable 0-0 draw at FA Cup holders Portsmouth last Saturday and will hope to complete the job in next week`s replay.
In their last League outing they beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at home.
Recent away form (last game first) DWDLLL
Both Lewis Guy and James Chambers have been suffering this week with illness but will hopefully be fit in time for Saturday. Matt Mills will hopefully have shrugged off the injury that made him a doubt for last Saturday`s postponed game at Cheltenham.
Bristol are hoping to have a number of first team players back for this game, Michael Mcindoe, Nicky Maynard, Brian Wilson and Jamie McAllister are all fit again.
Ivan Sproule and Jamie McCombe are both doubts after suffering injuries at Portsmouth.
The clubs have met seventeen times at Doncaster with the home side winning seven, six draws and four City wins.
When the teams met at Bristol City earlier in the season the home side ran out 4-1 winners.
