History

Reading have been something of a bogey side to Doncaster over the years. They have met on seventeen occasions at Doncaster with the away side winning nine to Doncaster`s two.

The last time Rovers beat Reading at Doncaster was in the 1982/83 season in a remarkable game. Rovers won 7-5 despite Kerry Dixon scoring four goals for the visitors.

When the two sides met at the Keepmoat for the first time last season the visitors went away with all three points thanks to a late goal from Dave Kitson.

When the two sides met earlier this season at Reading, they played out a poor 0-0 draw.
