Doncaster Rovers travel to Newcastle United on Saturday for their first visit to St James Park since 1973.

So far at home this season they have won four and drawn two.
Rovers recorded their second win of the season on Tuesday night when they beat Peterborough 3-1 at home.
So far on their travels this season they have drawn four and lost two. Their only two defeats coming at Middlesbrough and West Brom, the other two sides to be relegated from the Premiership last season with Newcastle.
