DRFC Coventry v Doncaster Rovers Preview

Doncaster Rovers travel to Coventry City on Boxing Day hoping to continue with their fantastic form in December.

Recent home form: WLDLdDD

Doncaster Rovers
Rovers are one of the form sides n the Championship in December winning four out of four and have yet to concede a goal.

Last time out on their travels they won 2-0 at Derby County last Saturday.

The fine form this month has seen them climb to eleventh in the table just four points outside the play offs.

Recent away form: WWLLLD

History
The two clubs have only ever met six times in their history at Coventry with the home side winning four to Doncaster`s one.

They met for the first time at the Ricoh Arena last season and a 40 yard chip from David Bell won the game 1-0 for the home side.

They have already met this season at the Keepmoat. In a game that Doncaster controlled for long periods, they couldn`t find their way past an inspired Kieran Westwood in the City goal and had to settle for a point in a 0-0 draw.

An amazing stat between the two clubs comes from the 1925/26 season. When they met at Highfield Road in September, Coventry won 4-0. When they met in the return at Belle Vue in January Rovers ran out 8-1 winners.

Somethings got to give in this one, both sides are on winning runs and Rovers haven't conceded a goal for four games.
