Last time out they came back from 2-0 down at Bristol City to claim a 2-2 draw.

So far this season away from home they have won seven, drawn seven and

History

The two clubs have only ever met three times at Doncaster with one draw and two wins for Newcastle.

When the two clubs met at St James Park earlier in the season Newcastle claimed all three points in the dying seconds of the game.

Doncaster took the lead through Dean Shiels in the first half.

Newcastle drew level through Andy Carroll with just over twenty minutes remaining.

In an eventful finish to the game, Doncaster missed a great chance to retake the lead when Martin Woods missed from the penalty spot.

The home side were then reduced to ten men when Zurab Khizanishvili was shown a straight red card.

Kevin Nolan broke Doncaster hearts deep into stoppage time when his placed shot found the back of the net.

Should be a great game, will be good to have Sharp back and Donny must be worth a few quid with Newcastle's away form in the past few months.
