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


Form

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.
