DRFC Doncaster Rovers v Blackpool Preview

Doncaster Rovers welcome Blackpool to the Keepmoat on Saturday hoping to give the Seasiders a fright on Halloween.


Rovers went down to an injury winner at Newcastle last weekend after leading for much of the match.

Last time out at home they beat Peterborough United 3-1

So far this season at home they have won two, drawn four and lost one.

The Seasiders are one of the form teams in the Championship at the moment winning two and drawing one of their last three games.

Last time out on their travels they drew 0-0 at Swansea City last Saturday.

Their away form has been poor so far this season, they have won one, drawn three and lost three in seven outings.


The two clubs have met nineteen times at Doncaster with the home side winning eight, Blackpool five and six draws.

Blackpool visited the Keepmoat for the first time last season in a dour 0-0 draw. In the return at Bloomfield Road in February, Rovers recorded their first ever success with a 3-2 victory.
