DRFC Doncaster v Sheffield United Preview

DRFC Doncaster v Sheffield United Preview

Doncaster Rovers and Sheffield United meet at the Keepmoat on Saturday with both sides looking to catch up Cardiff in the Play off positions.

Form


Doncaster
The Rovers are unbeaten in five games and have picked up six points in the last week with a 2-1 home win against Derby and a 2-1 midweek win at Peterborough.

Rovers almost certainly guaranteed their place in the Championship for next season, reaching 51 points at Peterborough and currently sit in eight place, only four points outside the play offs.

So far this season at home they have won eight, drawn six and lost four.

Recent home form: WDLWLL

Sheffield United
The Blades have been inconsistent recently and have won just three of their last ten games.

Last time out they beat Blackpool 3-0 at home in midweek.

Last time on their travels they lost 1-0 at Peterborough United.

United are currently one place and one point above Rovers in the table.

Their away form has been the difference this season between them mounting a serious promotion push and scrapping for a play off place, so far this season away from home they have won four drawn three and lost eleven.

Recent away form: LLLLLL

History
For two clubs so close geographically they have only met on twelve occasions at Doncaster.

The stats are even with both sides enjoying four wins apiece and four draws.

They met for the first time at the Keepmoat last season with Sheffield United winning 2-0.

When they met at Bramall Lane earlier this season the sides shared the points in a 1-1 draw.

James Hayter gave Rovers the lead on the stroke of half time only for Richard Cresswell to equalise halfway through the second half.

I hope we can secure the three points, we have a difficult run of fixtures coming up but not much pressure on now we have over 50 points.
