Doncaster Rovers have another local derby to look forward to this weekend when they welcome Barnsley to the Keepmoat.
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.
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.
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.
Last ten meetings at Doncaster
1972/73 Doncaster Rovers 0-0 Barnsley
1973/74 Doncaster Rovers 1-0 Barnsley
1974/75 Doncaster Rovers 1-1 Barnsley
1975/76 Doncaster Rovers 2-2 Barnsley
1976/77 Doncaster Rovers 2-1 Barnsley
1977/78 Doncaster Rovers 2-1 Barnsley
1978/79 Doncaster Rovers 2-2 Barnsley
2004/05 Doncaster Rovers 4-0 Barnsley
2005/06 Doncaster Rovers 2-0 Barnsley
2008/09 Doncaster Rovers 0-1 Barnsley
Betting (Odds supplied by Betfair.com)
Doncaster Rovers 5/4
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.
