DRFC Sharp edging towards club and league record
Billy Sharp will be hoping to continue with his goalscoring form over the Christmas period as he moves closer to a club record that has stood for over sixty years.
Sharp who is on a season long loan from Sheffield United has now scored in six games in a row, something that`s not been done since the 1976/77 season by Peter Kitchen.
Only two players have ever scored in more than six games in a row in the 130-year history of the club.
Peter Kitchen scored in seven in a row during the 1975/76 season.
Clarrie Jordan scored in ten games in a row, which is a Football League record that he shares with John Aldridge during his time at Newport County and Jermaine Defoe who was also a loan player at the time when he was playing for current Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll at Bournemouth.
Sharp`s goals have helped Rovers move away from the relegation zone during December with the side winning their last four games in a row without conceding a goal.
The 23 year old will be hoping to make it a magnificent seven when the side travel to Coventry City on Boxing Day.
