They have played in the FA Cup since then and went down 5-0 at Premier League leaders Chelsea.

History

The two sides have only ever met on six occasions at Doncaster with the away side having the slightly better record winning three games to Doncaster`s two.

On Watford`s only previous visit to the Keepmoat in April last year they won 2-1.

The two sides met on the opening day of the season at Vicarage Road in a 1-1 draw.
David Graham gave the home side the lead before James Hayter equalised before half time with a looping header from just outside the area.
