Preston
The Lilywhites had been in something of a slump recently winning only one of their previous ten games until the sacked manager Alan Irvine.

The team knocked out inform League One side Colchester United 7-0 in the FA Cup!

Recent home form: WWdLDD

Doncaster
Rovers haven`t played since Boxing Day when they lost for the first time in five games when going down to a late penalty in a 1-0 defeat at Coventry.

Rovers had won their previous four games in a row with loan striker Billy Sharp scoring in each game.

Recent away form: LWWLLL

History

The two clubs have only met thirteen times at Deepdale with the home side enjoying eleven wins to Doncaster`s one.

Rovers solitary win came in the 1987/88 season when they won 2-1.

When the two clubs met in the corresponding fixture last season, Preston won 1-0 thanks to a late goal from Jon Parkin.

The two clubs have already met this season at the Keepmoat back in August, a late Adam Lockwood goal for Rovers cancelled out a Chris Brown effort in the first half.
