DRFC Doncaster Rovers v Barnsley Preview

Doncaster Rovers have another local derby to look forward to this weekend when they welcome Barnsley to the Keepmoat.

Form


Doncaster Rovers

Rovers have become the draw specialists this season drawing eight of their eleven league games so far.

In their last game before the international break they held another South Yorkshire side Sheffield United to a 1-1 draw at Bramall Lane.

At home so far this season they remain unbeaten, winning one and drawing the other four.

Barnsley

The Tykes have seen an upturn in form since the arrival of new boss Mark Robins winning their last two league fixtures, both at Oakwell against West Brom and Ipswich.

On their travels this season they have won one, drawn one and lost three.

Last time out on their travels they suffered a heavy 5-2 defeat at Qpr.


History

The clubs have met on thirty occasions at Doncaster with the home side winning thirteen, Barnsley seven and ten games have been drawn.

Barnsley completed their first league double over Doncaster last season since the 1967/68 season, they came back from a goal down and reduced to ten men at Oakwell to run in four goals in the last thirty five minutes in a 4-1 victory.

In the return at the Keepmoat a little over three weeks later a Jon Macken goal was enough to take the three points for Barnsley in a 1-0 victory.

Match Betting

Doncaster Rovers 5/4
Draw 12/5
Barnsley 11/4

Prediction

Doncaster Rovers 0-0 Barnsley

With Doncaster being the draw specialists and the fact that they have a number of players struggling with injury, I think another draw is on the cards.
