DRFC Doncaster v QPR Preview

Doncaster Rovers welcome Queens Park Rangers to the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday desperate for points as they slip nearer the relegation zone.

This will be the team`s first game for two weeks after having last week off due to the international break.

Form

Doncaster
Last time out Doncaster lost 2-1 at Plymouth Argyle after playing most of the second half with only ten men.

Rovers home form has been quite good so far this with two wins, five draws and just the one defeat.

Last six at home DWLdDW

QPR
Rangers have been in good from recently under Jim Magilton in his first season in charge, they have won four of their last six games and scored four goals in three consecutive games during the run.

They will be hoping for another win in South Yorkshire after winning last time out when beating Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 at Hillsborough.

So far this season on their travels they have won four, drawn two and lost two.

Last six away WWLDWW

History
The two clubs have only ever met on eleven occasions with six of those games coming at Doncaster.

Rovers have a good record winning four, drawing one and losing one.

Honours were even last season when both sides enjoyed 2-0 victories at home.

Home fans who are old enough will still remember their FA Cup giant killing act in 1985, when Third Division Rovers knocked out top flight QPR 1-0 in the third round at Belle Vue thanks to a late David Harle goal.

I thik Rovers will get a draw at best.
King Billy
With two away games coming up after this Rovers must get three points. Hopefully some of the players will be back from injury although we are missing Woods through suspension.

I really hope for an open game, because both sides think it's winnable.
