History
The two clubs have only ever met ten times in their history.

The last time Rangers visited Doncaster older Rovers fans still reminisce about Rovers giant killing act in the FA Cup Third Round in 1985 when Third Division Rovers came up against Division One QPR.

Rangers were actually beaten finalists only three years earlier when they lost in a replay 1-0 against Spurs.

In the clash at Belle Vue Rovers won thanks to a fantastic strike from just outside the area by midfielder David Harle with just over ten minutes remaining.

When the two clubs met earlier in the season two goals in the first half by Dexter Blackstock and Emmanuel Jorge Ledesma inflicted Rovers first defeat of the season.
