DRFC - Plymouth v Doncaster preview

Doncaster travel to Plymouth on Saturday once again looking nervously over their shoulder at the chasing relegation pack with just three games remaining.


Form

Plymouth Argyle
The Pilgrim`s earned a valuable point at promotion chasing Birmingham City on Monday.

Last time out at home they scored four goals in the first half to beat Coventry City 4-0.

They are unbeaten in three but still sit just four points above the relegation zone.

Doncaster Rovers
Rovers thought their recent victory at Ipswich Town which moved them onto 52 points was enough to ensure safety in the Championship this season.

Rovers lost at home against Preston 2-0 on Monday and with teams below them winning they are now only six points clear of the drop zone with three games remaining.

History
The two clubs have met seventeen times before at Plymouth with the record being very close between the two sides. Plymouth have won six to Doncaster`s five with six games being drawn.
