Doncaster Rovers entertain Coventry City on Tuesday night hoping to build on their unbeaten start to the season.
Rovers have drawn both their league fixtures so far 1-1, and have come from behind in both games.
They got a 1-1 draw at Watford on the opening day, on Saturday they had to wait until the last ten minutes before Adam Lockwood secured them a point in the home game with Preston.
The Sky Blues have made an impressive start to their league campaign winning both games. They beat Ipswich at home 2-1 on the opening weekend and followed that up with a 2-0 win at Barnsley at the weekend.
They did have an unfortunate slip in between when they was dumped out of the Carling Cup 1-0 at League One Hartlepool.
The two clubs have only ever met six times at Doncaster, Rovers have won four and two have been draws. City are still waiting for their first victory in Doncaster.
When the two clubs met last season, both games were won by a single goal in favour of the home side.
Richie Wellens superb strike at the Keepmoat gave Rovers all three points whilst an opportunist 40 yard effort by David Bell won the game at the Ricoh for Coventry.
