Last season Doncaster enjoyed doing their first double over the midlands club.

Rovers won at Derby on the opening day of the season 1-0 thanks to a second half Lewis Guy goal and won the return 2-1 at the Keepmoat.

Would be great to see Rovers reach the fifth round and also quite a bit of cash in it to which Rovers would be grateful of.
