History

The two clubs have previously met on eight occasions at Vicarage Road with the home side winning four to Doncaster`s two and two draws.

The two sides met at Vicarage Road on the opening day of last season and had to settle for a point apiece in a 1-1 draw.

Danny Graham gave the home side an early lead before a James Hayter header brought Doncaster level.

Doncaster were denied a chance to take all three points when Dean Shiels effort looked to have crossed the line but their appeals for a goal were waved away by referee Neil Swarbrick.

Probably be another 1-1! We should have won on our two visits there since our return to the Championship.
