Doncaster Rovers travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday hoping to bring to an end their run this season without an away win.
The Eagles are in decent form at the moment, losing only one of their last twelve games.
They have won five and drawn six of the others.
They have won their last two home games against Middlesbrough 1-0 and Watford last week 3-0.
Darren Ambrose is a man in form scoring in their last six games.
Recent home form: WWDWDW
Rovers are having trouble on their travels this season and have yet to win, drawing four and losing five including the last three in succession.
Last weekend they suffered their heaviest defeat of the season at Nottingham Forest 4-1.
Billy Sharp is Rovers man in form scoring five goals in the last six games.
Recent away form: LLLDDL
The two clubs have only ever met on five occasions at Selhurst Park with the home side winning all five.
When the two sides met last season Rovers will have felt hard done by to come away with nothing.
Paul Heffernan fired Rovers ahead before Shefki Kuqi equalised from the spot after Matt Mills was harshly adjudged to have fouled Kuqi.
This also resulted in Mills being sent off and Rovers reduced to ten men for almost seventy minutes.
Rovers almost held out for a draw when Alan Lee scored the winner for the home side in the last minute.
